Senior Backend Engineer - Customer Team

What We Can Offer

We believe the car is the next great technology platform with the impact to change humanity for generations. At Volvo-CSP (Commercial Solutions Platform), we are working on some of automotive’s most challenging and exciting initiatives such as mobility, connected cars, and digital services. We’re hiring people who want to solve some of today’s most complex engineering challenges while making a positive impact.


Best of both worlds:

The CSP group originated from Luxe, which was a startup that was purchased by Volvo. We have maintained our fast, nimble culture while adding the resources and scale of Volvo. The technology you build will be in the hands of millions of Volvo owners and cars worldwide.


We are looking for a skilled Senior Backend Engineer who believes in our values and mission and is passionate about building great products. This position would sit in either our Mahwah, NJ or Gothenburg or Stockholm offices and report into a manager located in the US. Our team is split between Sweden and the US.


What We Value

We believe in radical truth and transparency. Sharing information more broadly means everyone can make better decisions. Constantly seeking the truth through hard facts and data generally leads to optimal outcomes. Our team sets very high standards and takes great pride in our work. We strive to work hard and with a purpose since everything should be tied back to a deeper goal.


Our team also believes in having fun and not taking ourselves too seriously. We enjoy each other’s company and welcome those with diverse backgrounds and experiences, however there is shared commonality in our values that bind us as friends and colleagues.


Lastly, we want everyone on our team to think and like an owner. Owners think about things holistically and proactively do what is necessary to achieve success. They own their outcomes and never brush away issues even if it’s not in their direct domain.

  • Communicate product and process needs back to relevant teams and work closely with those teams to execute on them
  • Work with 3rd party teams and develop deep and solid integrations enabling the customers to do more with their Volvo.
  • Support team in maintaining and improve automation tests using BDD
