Developer Software in the Loop Autonomous Drive

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. We are looking for curious, creative people who want to change the world through innovative thinking. 

 


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.

Now, we are looking for a member to join our team and contribute to our vision by changing how we see software development, testing, verification and validation of autonomous drive using simulations.


Who we are

We design, develop, test and maintain virtual verification tools to enable Safe Vehicle Automation. We focus our efforts in large-scale cluster simulations; developing and improving our tools incrementally with high focus on modularity, performance and usability

Our challenge is to balance simulation realism with time constraints, providing as much scenario and test case variation through the software under test in a fast and automated feedback loop to the users. Our empowered team has full ownership of our tools and roadmap – exploring, learning, deciding and delivering as we go, pushing the boundaries of state-of-the-art simulations and software testing in our field.


 

What you will do
You will be a developer in our agile team focusing specifically on simulation tools for Active Safety and Autonomous Drive functions. As a developer in our team you will experience challenges both in the domain of Autonomous Drive as well as technical challenges in how to create Software-in-the-Loop environments supporting it. You will collaborate closely with your team members, other SIL/HIL/DevOps teams as well as users and stakeholders both internally at Volvo Cars and external suppliers.


 

Who you are
We expect you to come with experience and passion within the areas of Software Development, Software Testing or Simulations. We’re not looking for you to be an expert in every domain and technology involved, but a solid understanding, experience and a mindset to develop and learn every day is a good start

As a developer in our team, the minimum qualifications include

  • MSc in relevant fields, e.g. Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Physics, Mathematics, Data Science, Mechatronics, Automation or similar
  • Programming skills in high level programming languages C++ and Python


If you are experienced working with or developing other simulation tools for Autonomous Drive it is a huge plus, but not requirement. Other meritorious skills and experiences could also be

  • Collaborative software development tools and practices (git, gerrit, Jenkins, zuul, CMake, DevOps, Test Driven Development, XP)
  • Containerization (Docker, Singularity)
  • Linux environments (Ubuntu, SLES)
  • Cluster computing (HPC)
  • Open tools and standards (googletest, pytest, FMU, protobuf, OpenSCENARIO, OpenDRIVE, Open Simulation Interface)
  • Game engines (Unity, Unreal)
  • Virtual reality (AR, VR)
  • Tools for verification & validation of Autonomous Drive


It is important to us that you enjoy and thrive working together as a team, to learn, innovate and getting things done. We are excited to have you join us in our journey taking virtual verification and software development to the next level – what are you waiting for?
