Senior Software Developer for Data Management

Your leadership will make a difference.

At Volvo Cars, we are always looking for world-class leaders who bring out the best in our people. If you want to be part of leading and inspiring our mission to change the automotive experience and make people’s lives less complicated, then we have the job for you.


Senior Software Engineer for Data Management  


Data Management and Platform - Let’s introduce ourselves.
In modern vehicle development and especially for safety-related functions, data plays an important role when doing initial insights, development work (both verification and AI), and continuous improvements after launch. The large amounts of data that are required for vehicle development need to be processed and managed to generate great products that provide a safe journey for our customers and are attractive to buy. 
Our organization provides value to the development teams by processing, organizing, and governing data, based on the needs of each team. We need a skilled application developer to lead the work with the development of systems for managing data. 

What you’ll do 
The functions we develop shall simplify and govern the usage of data. This requires designing systems and interfaces, and ensuring they are implemented and deployed for stable, long-time usage. The focus should be much on automation to ensure consistent behavior and to allow usage when our customers have the need. 
Our systems mostly use Python and are deployed either in our on-prem data center or in the cloud environment. Since we are part of a large organization the systems need to consider different users and interface with both Volvo Cars internal and our partners systems. After deployment, we operate our own systems and monitor usage. 

What you’ll bring
We are looking for an experienced software engineer with a passion for developing software and who has practical experience from all parts of the development lifecycle. 
You can design the systems and document the design using relevant types of notations to communicate with stakeholders. 
You have several years of hands-on software development experience and extensive experience in Python development and design patterns. 
Having skills in structuring production-intended code and being able to lead others by writing and ensuring good code is essential. You work equally well on the cloud as well as in the on-prem environment. 
Previous experience in developing systems for data management is meritorious.

You see that it is obvious to have an automated test flow and ensure tests cover the delivered functionality. 
We believe that you have a strong drive to learn continuously and are flexible to broaden your experience to areas that are necessary for the business. 


As a senior engineer, you are expected to lead in solving problems in our systems and ways of working even if you face challenges and different opinions.
