Work with HYBRIT

What is HYBRIT?

Hybrit Development AB is a joint venture between SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall with approximately 35 employees. HYBRIT stands for Hydrogen Breakthrough Ironmaking Technology and the vision is a fossil-free future. We are developing technologies for fossil-free, hydrogen-based, iron and steel production and are driving the transformation of the value chain to give a fossil-free mining and steel industry. Hybrit does not operate any production of iron or steel itself; instead, it is working with business-critical technological development together with our owner companies. We also engage consultants and external parties, but with a certain number of permanent employees as a base. Today, about 200 people in total work in, and around, Hybrit.


HYBRIT is dependent on a good supply of competence – primarily in research, development and technical expertise (for example, hydrogen and direct reduction). Our technology requires many years of experience, usually senior engineers, designers, project managers and experts. Often we employ, or borrow, expertise from our owner companies. When we look for external competence, we usually do so through recruitment companies and social media. Please follow us here on, when there is a vacancy, it will appear here. We always respond to requests, but unfortunately do not accept spontaneous applications via e-mail due to GDPR.

Trainees and degree projects

The long-term supply of competence is important and we are collaborating with universities and research institutes. HYBRIT works in project form and has no resources to supervise trainees or degree projects. If you are interested in doing practical work or a degree project with links to our field, we advise you to contact our owner companies.




Schools and education

HYBRIT is contributing to creativity and innovation in society. This means we are happy to share our knowledge and research. However, we have limited opportunities to answer questions related to school work or to participate in seminars or suchlike that are not directly linked to our own field of research. For example, we have a strong connection with LTU, KTH and other institutes. You can read more about our technology, research and process here, on our website. If you are looking for other information about HYBRIT, it is best provided by our owner companies SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall.

Hybrit is expanding and recruits specialists within Hydrogen

A new exiting opportunity for you who wants to be part of our world-unique development towards fossil-free steelmaking.

Hybrit Development AB is a joint venture company owned by SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall with the aim to develop technology for a fossil-free steel value chain. We at Hybrit are leading and coordinating projects and research work in cooperation with institutes, partners, and the owner companies to develop and industrialize a fossil free process solution. There are currently ongoing trials in simulated industrial pilot scale for direct reduction of iron ore with hydrogen that is produced in trials, change of fuel for palletization of iron ore, trials melting in an arc furnace and underground storage of hydrogen. A demonstration plant for direct reduction of iron ore based on hydrogen in a commercial scale is now prepared for a start in year 2026.

Within Hybrit’s fossil-free future value chain, industrial processes for safety, production, pressure, transport, and chemical properties of hydrogen play a central and crucial part! Do you find this interesting and exciting?

Within Hybrit we are continuing our journey to build up our long-term competencies and know-how and will strengthen our organization with new specialists within the hydrogen area. We are in total looking for four specialists based in Luleå and one Project Manager to Gällivare.

Hybrit will continue to be a small research and technology company. We are primarily a collaborative project and many who work within the Hybrit projects are employed by our owner companies as well as research institutes. We can offer a unique journey in the latest technology. You need a drive for challenges, you solve problems as a team and enjoy the ride – we have great fun along the way!

Does this sound interesting? We hope that more people want to join our journey!
