As Data Engineer at SSAB you will be building new data infrastructure for better connectivity as well as working with new data!
The steelplant can be described as a giant machine running 24-7, 365 days a year. SSAB is world leading when it comes to high strength steels and the largest steel producer in the Nordics. So, to start with, the stats are impressive, but this is only the beginning. SSAB is right now launching one of it´s largest investments ever, to start produce fossil free steel by 2026, through a technology called HYBRIT. For Oxelösund this means rebuilding the factory, and a total overhaul of all IT-systems. Over the coming years systems will be exchanged for a state of the art IT environment. In other words, you as a Data Engineer will have an opportunity of a lifetime, to help create the smartest, most digitized fossil free steel factory in the world!

Your responsibilities as a Data Engineer at SSAB will for starters be to learn existing data infrastructure. You will be working closely together with our Data Manager and you will also have cooperation with data engineers and data scientists as well as several system owners.  

With the coming digitization projects we will store significantly larger amounts of data than we do today, as well as new types of data that we do not handle today. Today’s data storage solutions will be expanded with infrastructure to retrieve and store all types of data, both structured and unstructured data (sensor data, alarms, logs, images, videos). This role is responsible for building robust data flows, creating efficient data transports to and from data warehouses, data lakes and external cloud solutions from various data sources.

Considering the location, Oxelösund, you can work from a distance, but you have to be at the office a couple of days a week, when needed more. Other perks in this Data Engineer role are strong benefits, (vacation, pension, insurance package, etc) senior and motivated colleagues.

To feel comfortable in the role you also like to use your analytical side mixed with curiosity as well as a good ability to collaborate. You also need to speak professional Swedish and English.

You have probably worked a couple of years, or more, in the Data Engineer role or a similar role. We believe you need to have experience of a Microsoft Data Warehouse (SSIS, SSAS, SSRS) and PL/SQL. 

If you also have experience of Power BI or similar visualization-tool and has been in contact with Hadoop and/or Kafka those are good merits as well. Another bonus would be experience of Python and Machine Learning tools.   


Our upcoming breakthrough fossil-free technology is the first true steelmaking transformation for centuries. SSAB customers around the world will still get premium high-strength steel, just adapted to the future.

SSAB is taking the lead in decarbonizing the steel industry, which today generates 7% of global greenhouse gas emissions. HYBRIT is a new revolutionary steelmaking technology.With HYBRIT technology, SSAB aims to be the first steel company in the world to bring fossil-free steel to the market already in 2026. SSAB will be practically fossil free by 2045. Together with our partners and customers, SSAB aims to create a fossil-free value chain, from the mine to the end-product.
