You have a strong will to create the future of electric vehicles – it’s probably fair to call you an EV nerd passionate about solving climate changes. You are enthusiastic, motivated, well-organized and driven. You’re not afraid to try new approaches and out of the box methods. You are a fast learner, have a holistic view, including vision, business, and customers. It is qualifying to have previous experience in battery management systems (Matlab Simulink) measurement tools, like INCA, Canalyzer and measurement systems. You have an education within electrical engineering or other similar university degree and at least two years of experience with measurements and analyzing.

At Polestar, you will be a part of a cross-functional and international team, with English as a natural language for written and spoken communication.
