Software Engineering Manager, Mobile Services

Want to drive digital change in automotive?

At Volvo Cars, we are making bold digital visions come true. We aim to lead in the automotive world by creating a digital ecosystem built around making our customers' lives less complicated. Now we are looking for curious, creative people who want to change the world through innovative thinking.

 

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. We follow a lean start-up development philosophy, where we iterate rapidly based on learning from real-world experience.
 

What you’ll do

You’ll help the engineers on your team by removing obstacles and helping them grow, and hire more great engineers to grow the team. You’ll contribute to projects through technical leadership, prioritization, and close collaboration with product managers, user experience designers, other teams and executives.

The team’s tasks will span all the way from early concepts to rolling out large-scale and 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 software engineering managers, who have previously built and led software engineering teams. You have experience of people management, cross-functional collaboration, large-scale system design and hands-on software development. You have at least a BS degree in Computer Science/Engineering or related technical field, or equivalent practical experience. Strong people management, collaboration and communication skills are essential. It would be great if you had experience of leading development of consumer-facing applications, and of rapid iteration in a changing environment.

 

Who are we?

Volvo Cars is a company on a mission; to bring traditional car manufacturing into a connected, sustainable and smart future.

Since 1927, we have been a brand known for our commitment to safety, creating innovative cars that make life less complicated for our consumers. In 2010, we decided to transform our business, resulting in a totally new generation of cars and technologies, as well as steady growth and record sales. Today, we’re expanding our global footprint in Europe, China and the US, and we’re on the lookout for new talent.

We are constantly pushing our own skills and abilities to drive change in the automotive industry like never before. We are looking for innovative, committed people to join us in this endeavour and create safe, sustainable and connected cars. We believe in the power of people and will challenge and support you to reach your full potential. Join us and be part of Volvo Cars’ journey into the future.
