The best place to work in the Global Automotive Industry. Join us on this exciting journey into the future, we want to hear from you!
We imagine that our friends, families, and children are transported in a personal, sustainable, and safe way. What we build is a self-driving, fully electric, connected, and super safe Volvo Car. The amount of software in our future vehicles is by far exceeding many other software critical products and businesses. We tend to see the future cars as a computer on wheels. To orchestrate such a huge software-centric system, we both need a computer that is powerful enough to carry all features from control loops to AI/Machine Learning capabilities. We need a software architecture that enables us to utilize the hardware and to support a fast-moving organization and development. In addition, we are in a transformation with our products and our company to become more of a software-driven company. Our strategic and operational work on our SW & Electronics architecture plays an important role in enabling this transformation.
About us in the Global Architecture Team for Software & Electronics architecture
Our mission is to ensure that the Software- and Electronics (SW&E) architecture at all times is suitable for defining efficient system solutions according to company strategies.

The scope of our work is to set the global System Design aspects and SW Architecture and Electronics Architecture, to govern the SW&E Platform Architecture, and to decide and clarify System Design Strategies. We work both strategically, for future platforms and products, and operational supporting implementation on the current platform. We do this by proactively and continuously guide the product streams, by nursing the feature flow by supporting the product streams, and by govern, learn, and adopt by following up on architectural compliance. We are organized in Teams of System Architects, grouped by the name of CESA (Complete Electrical System Architecture) to work strategically but also focus on the operational support for the product streams to nurse the feature flow. We now need to expand and strengthen the governance teams to ensure an always working system.
