Senior Staff Engineer

Software development that makes a difference

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.


Would you like to influence and craft the technical strategy that helps Volvo Cars to grow and reach our goal of being an electric car company by 2030? Excellent, then we would like you to join our Global Online Experience (GOX) area as a Staff Engineer!
GOX Fulfilment & Fleet area covers everything our customers do once they have signed up for a vehicle with us, from making sure the vehicles and services are delivered on time.
We’re looking for someone that will help us craft a technical architecture and strategy that spans across multiple product clusters, and drive technical initiatives with our neighboring areas of Volvo Cars.
We have only just begun this journey in earnest and you’ll be joining us at a time where you can really have a great impact and help us set the tone for the next chapter in our company's history! This position is located out of our office in Stockholm or Gothenburg.
What you'll do:
•    Provide technical leadership across GOX and in initiatives that span our neighboring departments and strategic partnerships (e.g. Polestar).
•    Chip into the overall GOX product vision and strategy, and advise and guide senior leaders in technical matters.
•    Support work to architect, design, develop, deploy and operate services and systems that form the core of the Volvo Cars data-driven transformation initiatives, and beyond.
•    Be a guide in your particular field and a go-to person for setting strategic directions within it.
•    Be a mentor and role model for other senior engineers and leaders in the organization.
•    Encourage sound engineering practices while driving our technical strategy and roadmaps.
•    Be a doer and inspiring leader in the company-wide engineering community.
•    Demonstrate and champion an appetite for knowledge and never stop developing as an Engineer and leader.
•    Share your knowledge to help others grow by being visible and e.g. coordinate lunch-and-learns, publish your thoughts on external and internal blogs, represent Volvo Cars on external conferences and meetups, etc.
Who you are:
•    Someone with extensive proven experience as a technical leader (formal or informal) for a large organization.
•    You have probably been part of a large scale transformation in a previous company, and know-how to navigate that.
•    Someone that have solid previous experience in working hands-on as a Senior Software Engineer in an agile environment, and still love doing it (when time allows).
•    A person that enjoys collaborating with all levels of engineering-, product- and UX leaders to build outstanding products.
•    You fully adopt a growth mindset and can encourage others to do the same.
•    You get a kick out of mentoring and supporting your fellow engineers and teams, so they can grow to their full potential.
•    You understand the importance of having a solution that is scalable, sustainable, architecturally sound; you care about quality and you know what it means to ship high quality code.
•    You can comfortably navigate ambiguity and when required have the ability to exercise good judgment and decision-making.
•    A compassionate person who understands that every individual and situation has their specific needs and can adapt your leadership style and interactions accordingly.
•    Someone who likes to have fun at work and take great care in making sure everyone always feels welcome and included.


We offer our employees excellent benefits such as:
•    Plenty of leave to let you take time off for what's most important in life.
•    At Volvo Car Group, all new parents with one year’s active permanent service now receive 24 weeks of parental leave, paid at 80 percent of their base pay. The policy is for everyone – whether you’re a designer or a plant operator, whether you work in Sweden, China, or the USA.
