Release Manager

It's not about technology. It's about life.

At Volvo Cars, we’re on a mission to make people’s lives less complicated. We never start with technology and try to squeeze people in around it – we always design our cars around people, and we innovate to provide safe, sustainable and convenient mobility. Want to join us?

 

 

 

About us

Volvo Cars is the first brand to launch vehicles with an Infotainment system based on Android Automotive. We do this in close collaboration with Google and other major technology providers. To achieve this, we on Volvo Cars have transformed and become a truly software driven company. We value creativity, diversity, and inclusion.

On Infotainment, our engaged and agile development teams work with the Android platform, Android Automotive Apps, Audio, Connectivity, Driver Information, Entertainment, Personalization and Vehicle Functions (e.g. climate control). We apply the latest software development practices, and the development teams are supported with Continuous Integration (CI) frameworks and collaboration tools. The resulting software is released to other parts of the company and eventually to the factories and customers.

 

About the role

You will be leading the Release teams and prioritize their backlogs. As Release Manager you will continuously work with securing the deliveries from both our internal development teams and from our suppliers to deliver SW for Volvo Cars production and aftermarket across several different platforms. Typical work tasks consist of planning and executing release activities such as branching, certifications, continuous deliveries, testing, documentation, handling deviations etc. The Release Manager has a very central role and communicating and collaboration with Continuous Integration teams (CI), Engineering Managers, Product Managers, Product Owners, Release Train Engineers, suppliers, vehicle projects, factory managers and many others is an essential part of the Release Manager’s daily work.

 

About you

We believe that you have a MSc. or BSc. in a relevant academic field, keen on learning more things. In addition to your academic background, you have a minimum of 5 years relevant experience working with SW release or similar. You are comfortable with solving complex tasks involving many people with different backgrounds and competencies. When interacting with people, you connect to them and expand your network on Volvo Cars. You make decisions based on facts and the current best knowledge, even when you are under stress.

You prefer working in a team, putting the needs of the team and the team success above your own need to shine – you are a team player. Feedback is something that you value to both receive and share with others. You participate actively in the team discussions about how to improve collaboration and ways of working.

You like engaging with people and keep attention to the details when administrating the various production systems. You like understanding, working in and improving workflows and processes. If you have experience of configuration management and/or automation of processes it will be to your benefit in the selection process for this position.
