DevOps for new central platform in future Volvo car

DevOps for our new central platform in future Volvo Car  

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 impossible for us to have the control that we need to succeed. The overall technical threshold is that the +140 electric components in the car do not communicate in the way that we want them to.  

Therefore, we build a new platform. The heart of the platform will be a core computer with the capacity to carry a vast majority of electric control units and applications- a vehicle control unit. In our part of the R&D, we code the base software on the computer to refine computational power and to enable successful integration with applications.  

The future vehicle with a core computer-in-the-car-architecture- will enable advanced connectivity, machine learning, and autonomous drive. But we are not yet there.  


About the department - Core System Software  

In our part of the R&D, we code the base software on the Core Computer to refine computational power and to enable successful integration with applications. Our teams work in an agile manner organized according to SAFe to be able to quickly adjust to changing requirements.   

We work with an a-state-of-the-art embedded multiprocessor environment from Nvidia including hypervisors, Linux, QNX, Rust, Robot Framework, and other modern technologies.  


Role specifics  

Together with your team you will monitor the CI environment and ensure that the different build pipelines are up and running. The team is also involved in the development of the CI environment and in the automation of different tasks like building, testing, packaging, and releasing software. You and the team supports the developers with debugging and analysis of problems that occur in the CI system. A good CI system and support to the development teams are key to ensure a fast and agile development environment.   



We would wish for you to have a keen interest in DevOps used in modern SW development as well as a passion for creating a stable development environment giving our developers a fast feedback loop. You like solving problems together with and through others. You have a strong customer focus, enjoy the possibility to influence and you love to be part of a team where we take our own initiatives, and take pride in your own and the team’s deliveries.  

To be successful in this job we also believe that you have experience from analyzing, troubleshooting, and debugging problems in a complex software build system, both compilation and test logs as well as system logs on the build machines. Give support to different parts of the organization such as developers, testers, and management. Interest in the automation of tasks. Solid knowledge about CI/CD systems, Git, Jenkins, and Gerrit are required. Competence in C++, Python, Docker, and working with cloud-based solutions are meriting.
