About the job

As an Operator, you’ll work at the heart of Northvolt – where battery cells are manufactured. Key duties involve control and monitoring of the machines, re-filling material and contributing to continuous improvements on the line.

Precise tasks and what your working day looks like depends on where in production you work. In some Operator roles you don’t work close to machines, but instead service workstations with materials, ensure batteries are packed and ready to leave the factory, or support production in other vital ways. You will work in in close collaboration with other operators, shift leaders, maintenance, quality and environment personnel.

At Northvolt, you will be part of a fast-growing company with high energy. Battery production is a completely new base industry in Sweden. Unlike many other industries, most of the production occurs in cleanrooms and are highly automated.
