Purchaser for high-voltage propulsion components

Purchaser for high-voltage propulsion components

Scania is now undergoing a transformation from being a supplier of trucks, buses and engines to a supplier of complete and sustainable transport solutions.

Do you want to work as a purchaser in a dynamic, commercial and international environment with a high tempo and great development possibilities?

The Purchasing team, High-Voltage propulsion components, purchases parts and components used in Electrified Vehicles manufactured in our global truck and bus production system. We are currently in an intensive period with a lot of new projects, many of them carried out together with our colleagues within the TRATON group. Therefore we are expanding the team and are now looking for a new committed team member interested in business and new technologies within the Electrification area.

The team

The High-Voltage propulsion components team has an open atmosphere, good knowledge transfer and always help each other out. The group consists of six purchasers with different backgrounds, nationality, genders and experience. The team is responsible for purchasing of High-voltage Batteries, eMachines, Power Electronics and Electric Power transmissions. In our daily work we participate in and have the possibility to influence Scania’s journey to drive the shift towards a sustainable transport system.
