Senior Business Operations Associate

What We Can Offer

Our human-centric focus is what makes us different from all other car companies, and it’s at the heart of everything we create. Volvo Cars is on an ambitious journey to redefine the customer experience in automotive through digital technology.


Our vision is simple – creating the freedom to move in a personal, sustainable and safe way – and the goals we’ve set up to support it are bold and ambitious. We’re building an organization full of creative, diverse and talented people working to build new, exciting digital products and services supporting those goals.


We’re looking for team members to join our organization who think about technology problems and opportunities in exciting and different ways – creative and enthusiastic thinkers who want to change the world with us here at Volvo.


Job Purpose

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 challenges through innovative digital products. 


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 digital technology you help scale will be in the hands of millions of Volvo owners and cars worldwide.


We are looking for a skilled Senior Business Operations Associate who believes in our values and mission and is passionate about building great products. This position would sit in our Sunnyvale office in California. Our team is split between the US and Sweden.




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


This role is based in our Sunnyvale, California location.
