If you want to grow together with talented people who are creating a new automotive future, we have a job for you.
We are on our way to our digital future in many different parts of our business. One success factor that we need, is new digital products that will help us deliver coherent user experiences. Our digital services will complement and enhance our vehicles, enable new business models and increase the pace of innovation throughout the enterprise. We put our users first by thinking with a human-centric mindset. 


What’s in it for you?
We are looking for a passionate Digital Product Owner for the area of integration provisioning within the cluster Integration Center of Enablement (ICoE). 
The Integration Office product resides within the Integration Center of Enablement Cluster which manages a set of integration platforms, currently 8 of them, where IBM MQ, RedHat 3scale, and Apache KAFKA are the key platforms. We maintain and operate these platforms and self-service portals to enable (state of the art) integration capabilities for all applications at Volvo Cars.


You will take an active part in the transformation around how we develop integrations at Volvo Cars by developing an efficient onboarding process for the product team to become empowered to use our self-service tools for integrations without having to rely on ICoE to the work. At the same time, there is both a transitional period as well as there will always be certain teams requiring support as well as more complex integrations that cannot be managed using self-service tooling, here you will make sure we have an efficient process with high quality in our deliverables along with happy customers. And of course, have lots of fun while doing it.


During the transformation, your team will act as a stakeholder towards the team responsible for developing VIP (Volvo Cars Integration Portal), which is our self-service portal for integration the “one-stop shop for all your integration needs”. You will work also work with all the users of VIP to gather and understand their needs together with the VIP team.  Timely provisioning of high-quality integrations to our applications are naturally critical in these times of speed and information exchange when digitalizing our company to grow.
