Data Engineer

Want to drive digital change in automotive?

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.


What’s the challenge?
Volvo Cars is performing a strategic shift towards becoming a software driven company, with data being a core asset in this transformation. One challenge within the industrial cluster is the legacy application landscape which has been emerging gradually over 40 years. This has led to core information being scattered over several different applications. To overcome this, we are exploring possibilities to move core information into a common data platform in order to improve reliability and availability of the data. Furthermore, we are striving towards having one single source of truth for the data and to enable efficient governance of production critical data.

You will join the Order Management & Planning product cluster within Production Planning & Procurement area of Digital at Volvo Cars. This product cluster delivers digital solutions that improve stability and consistency in the production plan, which will enable us to provide shorter and more accurate lead times to our customers. You will be part of the journey as we deliver on our company’s vision and ensure high flow through our factories. We use modern tools and agile methods to create business value continuously. We ensure high quality and adaptability in our delivery. Of course, we have fun together while doing it.  

We work according to the SAFe framework; 2-week sprints and 12-week PI-increments. However, we’re not religious about it and are constantly evaluating how to work in the best way, applying common sense to ensure as little waste as possible.
