Software Engineer, Back-end

Want to innovate to make life simpler?

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?


Who are we? 

In the Volvo Cars Consumer Connectivity Services team (CCS), we build mobile services to make life easier, like effortless car sharing, deliveries directly to your car, and moving your car to where it needs to be. The team is located in Sweden, the US and China, and many of the people you will be working with have experience from global tech companies such as Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon. This is a rapidly growing team, and we are looking for outstanding people who will be some of the earliest hires in their function, helping to establish it at Volvo Cars.  


What you’ll do 

In this role, you will work on the cloud components of user facing products such as car sharing, in-car delivery or electric car charging. In addition, you can expand to working on these services in mobile apps, wearables, voice assistants and in-car applications. Tasks will span all the way from early concepts to building finalized high-end products. You will work with teams across the company, across the globe, across many functions, such as UX, product management, and business development, and with external companies, like in our delivery collaboration with Amazon. 


Who you are 

We are looking for experienced back-end developers with an agile development mindset. You should have experience of building cloud services for user facing applications. You are experienced in back-end development, including areas such as microservices, data models, persistence layers, back end services (REST APIs), app frameworks, caching and messaging services, networking, security and integration with partner and third-party APIs. You have at least a BS degree in Computer Science/Engineering or related technical field, or equivalent practical experience. Strong collaboration and communication skills are essential.
