Senior Software Engineer Frontend

Software development that makes a difference

At Volvo Cars, we are making bold digital visions come true. We aim to lead in the automotive world by creating a digital ecosystem built around making our customers' lives less complicated. Now we are looking for curious, creative people who want to change the world through innovative thinking.

 

This role is within our Global Online Experience team, which is using digital technologies to reinvent  the experience of becoming a Volvo customer. There's no reason the experience of buying a car  should be painful and difficult – it should be as enjoyable and exciting as actually having a new car. 


That is our mission. 
You will be responsible for developing front-end software for consumer facing and internal products across more than 100 countries. We create the end-to-end experience for online sales/subscriptions of cars, global campaigns as well as frameworks for other parts of Volvo cars. Your responsibilities will include rapid development of prototypes/concepts, and regular product development.


You should have start-up experience where you have quickly developed prototypes and catalysed product development in a fast paced, fluid environment. You are a hands-on developer with frontend experience. You are experienced with agile development and a champion of software development best practices. You are also experienced in leading and supporting your teammates with technical decisions.

 

You and your skills

  • To succeed in this role, you need to have a minimum of 6 years of work experience developing front-end software. 
  • Expert in Javascript programming and in building UIs with HTML and CSS.
