Software Engineer

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 We Are:

We believe the car is the next great technology platform with the impact to change humanity for generations. At Luxe, 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.

 

Luxe is a startup that was recently 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 Software Engineer who believes in our values, mission, and is passionate about building great products.

 

Mission & Values: “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 leads to generally more optimal outcomes.
  • in having very high standards and taking great pride in our work.
  • in working hard and with purpose. Everything should be tied back to a deeper goal.
  • in having fun and not taking ourselves too seriously.
  • in enjoying each other’s company. We welcome those with diverse backgrounds and experiences, however, there is shared commonality in our values that bind us as friends and colleagues.
  • that no one is above the company -- ever.
  • in thinking and acting 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.

 

What You Will Do:

  • Build a set of tools that will help us visualize and manage our complex logistics engine.
  • Participate in defining the product as part of regular meetings with the product team.
  • Ensure system stability by respecting the highest standards of software development, design, security, and testing.
  • Bring new ideas and best practices to the table: we’re always wanting to improve.

 

What You Will Bring to Volvo:

  • 4+ years of professional experience building responsive web interfaces that present data in compelling ways.
  • Passion for User Experience and delivering beautiful user-friendly applications.
  • Proficient with modern web frameworks such as React or Angular 2.
  • Understanding of the full web technology stack (e.g. HTML, CSS, HTTP, cookies, headers, asset loading / caching) and a broad knowledge of the JavaScript ecosystem.
  • Experience building large, data-heavy web applications. 
  • High coding standards.
  • Write clean, reusable, maintainable and documented code.
  • Deep understanding of testing best practices (i.e. test-driven development, coverage analysis, etc.). 
  • Code reviews

 

Nice to Have:

  • Experience with Redux-Saga
  • Experience with TypeScript
  • Backend experience; particularly in Node.js & MySQL a plus
  • Professional experience with relational databases (MySQL, PostgreSQL)
  • Familiarity with microservice architectures

 

Who are we?

Everything we do starts with people. Our purpose is to provide freedom to move, in a personal, sustainable and safe way. We are committed to simplifying our customers’ lives by offering better technology solutions that improve their impact on the world and bringing the most advanced mobility innovations to protect them, their loved ones and the people around them.

Today, we are one of the most well-known and respected car brands, with over 40,000 employees across the globe. We believe in bringing out the best in each other and harnessing the true power of people. At Volvo Cars your career is designed around your talents and aspirations so you can reach your full potential. Join us on a journey of a lifetime as we create safety, autonomous driving and electrification technologies of tomorrow.
