Electrification has entered an exciting phase in which demand for electrified vehicles is rapidly growing. The development of components is rapidly progressing and we need to supply world-class solutions both today and in the future if we are to satisfy the exacting demands of the market. We now need to further strengthen the team as there are major challenges ahead.
The Electric and Hybrid Technology Development section is responsible for producing the electrified powertrain for Scania’s vehicles and is responsible for components, properties and functions where we in the Energy Storage group are responsible for battery development.
We are currently looking for a person for the group to develop and strengthen our battery team in work on the current and future generations of batteries.
Testing engineer with focus on electrical systems in the battery
A hybrid battery for heavy vehicles is an item that contains battery cells, but also an electrical system, cooling system, sensors and monitoring. As a testing engineer, you will be responsible for testing batteries at component and system level. You will also be involved in developing testing methods and requirement setting in our projects. We organise testing at both component level in our battery lab as well as in vehicles. We also arrange testing together with external test labs, services that we are then responsible for purchasing.
The group works on batteries in all development phases, and you will be involved in both product follow-up and development and predevelopment for the battery generations of the future.
We expect you will have at least an MSc in Engineering or the equivalent in chemistry, systems, electronics or another relevant area.
Experience and knowledge of battery development would be an advantage, as would previous experience of testing. You will work independently, and your ability to plan and push your own testing towards set goals is particularly important. You enjoy working at the forefront of engineering within an area of technology that is rapidly developing and therefore constantly changing.
You need to be the kind of person who finds it easy to handle and coordinate numerous contacts, as the job involves cooperation with suppliers and other functions at Scania. You will be proficient in both written and spoken English, and knowledge of German would be an advantage as we cooperate a lot within the group.
In addition to career and development opportunities, we can also offer Scania employees other benefits, such as a company car, performance bonuses, a pension, flexible working hours, lunch at reduced prices and much more. If you live in Stockholm, we offer a direct bus service between Stockholm and Södertälje, the Scania Jobexpress.
