At Volvo Group Connected Solutions, we work at the forefront of connectivity with data from more than 1 000 000 Volvo Group customer assets. Together with customers, partners and the Volvo Group we create real value, not only for our customers but also for society at large.
This is us, your new colleagues
As you can imagine, keeping track of over 1 000 000 connected customer assets rolling around the world is indeed a challenge. Now ponder that vehicles in a few years will be autonomous – and you’ve got the challenge of your life. Our Technology team manages the development and maintenance of our global connectivity platform – and your experience is needed.
We are now looking for an experienced Network Architect for our Network Operations team.
- You will be responsible for the overall design, documentation and availability of our global network service covering both On-Premise and Cloud based environments
- You will lead the network related activities to ensure VGCS has an efficient, scalable, automated network infrastructure supporting the demands of our connected vehicle services
- You will be an active part of the architect community sharing your knowledge and ideas as well as taking on-board and utilizing the experience of your colleagues
- You will be following the latest developments within the cloud networking area as well as other relevant networking developments and technologies
- You will also drive and be part of the daily operation activities supporting the other team members
Your personality is your major reason for success, but we also expect you to:
- Be passionate about cloud-based technologies and have certified knowledge and experience of AWS networking technologies and services
- Extensive hands-on experience of LAN/WAN network technologies and protocols, ideally from a 24/7 production environment. Specific experience of Juniper, Big IP F5 and Palo Alto is an advantage
- Experienced in automation - scripting, Ansible/Puppet, CloudFormation, infrastructure-as-code
- Good understanding of our IT building blocks including software development, CI/CD, micro-component based applications, web tools and technologies and the demands these blocks place on network services.
- Have a calm, analytical approach and natural ability to focus when under pressure
- Work in a global context which requires high proficiency in both English and Swedish, written and spoken
- Have a valid work-permit for Sweden, if not EU-citizen
You will be part of a team that creates great results through amazing people, strong relationships and a high performance culture. We are of course using the latest technologies delivering a very modern micro service based service platform hosted in the cloud. We use agile methods and as we are adopting the DevOps model your work will cover a broad spectrum, all the way from developing prototypes of future world class services to managing the lifecycle of the existing ones.
Being based in Lindholmen Science Park in Gothenburg you will work in the heart of a vibrant area that lives and breathes new technology like IoT, autonomous driving, electromobility and digitalization.
