The world is changing. How about you? 

Would you want to be part of our exciting journey in making people´s lives less complicated and play a key role in enabling the digital transformation of the entire car - then come join our team!



This is what your new colleagues do

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. But the current platform makes it hard for us to implement the features that we need to succeed. The overall technical threshold is that the +140 electric components in the car make up a complex system, not allowing us to innovate at the pace we want. Therefore, we build a new platform. The brain in this platform is the high capacity Core Computer. This Core Computer together with a new centralized signal system aims to enable optimized software architecture. This will give Volvo Cars a high pace deployment of future features enabling an autonomous, electrical, and connected car.


What you will do

In our part of the R&D, we develop the Base Software Platform (BSP) for the Core Computer. We do that to provide computational power and to enable successful integration between applications. Our teams work in an agile manner organized according to SAFe to be able to quickly adjust to changing requirements. We work with a-state-of-the-art embedded multiprocessor environment from Nvidia including hypervisors, Linux, QNX and other modern technologies.


The team develop base software for our platform on top of QNX and Nvidia drivers. As a software engineer in the team you will work with defining the functions and creating solutions which are safe and reliable. You will work with requirement refinement, design software architecture, and strive for good code quality to enable the team to deliver in a high pace. 


Who are you?

We think you are a software architect with experience in embedded C++/14 and C. We want to work with you who have a keen interest in modern computing technologies and want to work in an evolving industry. You are analytical and a problem-solver - aware of that there are multiple solutions for a problem. The challenge is to find the most suitable for us - together. You are a customer-oriented person who enjoys being part of a team where you take own initiatives and take pride in your own and the team’s deliveries. If you have experience within threat modelling and secure coding it would be great contribution to the team. If you have experience from automotive or aerospace software development, it’s considered a plus.
