Troubleshooting for new SW centric platform in future Volvo car

Troubleshooting for new SW centric 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 support the developers with debugging and analysis of problems that occur in the system. We would wish for you to have a keen interest in modern SW development as well as a passion for 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 believe that you have extensive experience in analyzing, troubleshooting, and debugging problems in a complex software system. You are confident in handovers, in collaborations, and with educating teams. You have worked with low-level debugging of embedded systems with Lauterbach and similar tools. You are experienced with scripting Python for C++ or C-code you are familiar with CMake, compilers, Valgrind, playspace, and multi-CPUs  

Working with CI/CD pipelines and Momentix/QNX is considered meriting.




  • Exam from BSc or MSc in Computer Science, or BSc in Computer Science + MSc in Embedded Systems alt. BSc from Electrical Engineering + MSc in Embedded Systems 
  • At least 7 years of experience from working with Software Development
  • Proven scripting/coding commits
