What’s in it for you?

Volvo Cars is on an ambitious journey to redefine the customer experience in automotive through digital technology. Electrification, Autonomous Drive and Shared Mobility are enablers for our purpose – freedom to move in a personal, sustainable, and safe way.

Software engineering is an increasingly important area in the automotive industry. Volvo Cars is bringing more of the software development in-house to better handle continuous integration and the complex interactions between different functions. Connectivity is an enabler for most vehicle functions, including diagnostics and data collection, but also introduces privacy and cybersecurity risks that needs to be managed through innovative and robust designs.

In the Vehicle Data & Diagnostics department within the unit Connected Experience, we put high quality vehicle data at the fingertips of engineers and enable uptime through diagnostics. We are growing and we are therefore now looking for curious, creative people who want to change the world through innovative thinking.


What do we do?  
Our team is developing a solution that will allow/enable Volvo to collect data from customer vehicles in a flexible and fast way, by downloading “assignments”. These assignments can monitor and measure different conditions in the vehicle and collect data when applicable (depending on the trigger scenarios). The data will be offloaded to the cloud for further analysis.

The solution consists of a computer that runs on a Yocto Linux environment that runs inside an ECU. This computer enables us to run the mentioned scripts (assignments) to collect, analyze, and store vehicle data (diagnostic data, images, sensors measurements etc.)

For this position you will be working developing the software that runs on the vehicle (embedded software). We use GoLang as a development language.


What will you do? 
In your role as software developer, you are a member of an agile development team which is responsible for implementing and maintaining our product according to priorities set by a product owner.

You are fluent in English (verbal and written). You have a M.Sc. in Software Engineering and at least 6 years’ experience of software development. 

As a person: 
You are proactive with a go get attitude, a team player that believes in the power of teams working together and in collaboration, a problem solver, and a flexible team player. You will get a lot of freedom to be creative and the teams are self-empowered but with great power comes great responsibility, we must deliver!
