We are now looking for more committed and curious power system specialists with competence in control systems for support in our projects as large investments will be made in our network in the coming year.

We are in a historic transition and are facing a comprehensive electrification of society. One way we do this is to increase the investments we make in our electricity network in the coming year.

We translate plant strategies, operating experiences and development projects into actual standardized solutions to be implemented in the business. Unleash your superpowers with us!

Your main responsibility will be to provide specialist expertise to the investment business, which means acting as a technical resource in our projects. Your duties include, among other things:

  • Ensure the quality of the new facilities and that the facility design is optimal.
  • Participate in tender evaluation regarding the station's technical functions.
  • Review technical construction and check design during factory tests.

You have worked with a variety of electrical power issues and are familiar with the structure and function of the electrical grid, especially with a focus on fault disconnection and control equipment systems. You enjoy collaborating with others and find it easy to express yourself verbally and in writing in both Swedish and English. An important driving force for you is a curiosity in constantly learning more connected to technology and how technology can be used in the best way to be able to act as good technical support in projects. As travel to nearby projects may occur in this position, you need a class B driver's license.
