What you’ll do

Vehicle ownership is changing radically – and this process will only gather pace. At Volvo Cars, we intend to redefine every aspect of the car ownership eco-system and user experience is at the heart of this. As an Illumination Designer at Volvo Cars, we expect you to deliver high-quality lighting experiences to the customer, working as part of the Colour, Material and Finish (CMF) Design team and collaboratively with Car UX, Exterior and Interior designers to create holistic experiences. You should also be curious and comfortable with prototyping to sell in your ideas. You will have the unique opportunity of being part of a newly created team of Illumination Designers.​

What you’ll bring
We are a human-centric business that recognizes the value in human relations. At Volvo Cars, we never start with technology and try to squeeze people in around it – we always design our cars around people. That’s us. But how about you? We hope you’re a dreamer, a visionary, a free-thinker, a leader and a self-motivator. What’s important is that you share our ideals and enthusiasm for transformation – and that you’re comfortable being you.​

As Illumination Designer, you will create concepts and craft the lights of the exterior and interior of the car. Together with the Illumination and CMF Design team you will find and explore new ideas on light. You will also influence and inspire the other design areas and create design proposals on light behaviour.  We are looking for someone who is a collaborator, able to work with design partners and other stakeholders from marketing to engineering. You should believe in your ideas and feel comfortable presenting work-in-progress and taking feedback from colleagues. And finally, although we see you as having experience, we need you to be committed to learning more – because this is what is moving us towards our innovative goals.​

  • Arrange meetings and sync across design platforms and departments.  
  • Define light behaviours. Sketch and animate light ideas on design material and apply the use cases.  
  • Give design directions to visualisation and illumination designers within the team.  
  • Craft the light in CMF strategic bucks.  
  • Review/align design to define direction/content with stakeholders.  
  • Give design direction to VRED → UNITY.
