Development Engineer in water purification technology

Metals exist and are needed everywhere. Boliden extracts minerals and produces metals with high quality in a cost effective manner. The work is characterized by a concern for people, the environment and society. Boliden Mines staff function has approximately 300 employees and includes, among other departments Technology, Exploration, Business Development, HR & Sustainability.

The Process Engineering Department, with its 24 employees, is part of Engineering. The primary task of the department is to support the concentrators within the Mines Business Area in everything from problem solving in operations to feasibility planning for new facilities and processes. Process engineering also works extensively with Boliden’s own environmental department to develop and improve water purification and reclamation technologies. We are also carrying out many projects that involve the exploration department in surveys for new deposits. In order to solve these tasks, Process Engineering has a very well-equipped pilot plant and laboratory. 

In order for Boliden to achieve its goals of always causing only the minimum of environmental impact at our facilities, the Process Engineering Department now needs to recruit a development engineer specialising in water purification.

Work duties

As a development engineer in water purification, you will get to work on the development of new water purification processes and optimisation of the existing water purification systems. You will also assist the operations organisation if disruptions of any kind occur. During the feasibility planning of new mines, your role will be to draw up design documentation for planning of the water purification systems. These may be intended for purifying water of nitrogen, metals, thiosalts, sulphates, etc. 

Process engineering work is conducted as assignments or in project form, and your role may involve being both project manager and participant in the project group. This work is mainly focused on the concentrators and our own R&D programme, but there may also be other clients, both internally and externally. 

This will be a permanent full-time position. You will initially be based at Boliden, but other locations may become relevant, depending on the needs of the applicant. The starting date is subject to agreement.

Education and qualifications

You should be a graduate engineer or equivalent, preferably with training in water purification or water chemistry. As the job involves a high degree of personal responsibility, it is important that you can work independently. The work requires good interpersonal skills, and proficiency in both written and spoken Swedish and English. A category B driving licence is a requirement.
