System Test Engineer

Do you consider reading the manual or instruction to learn how a product works a personal defeat?
Do you smile when you have explored a product until you have not only understood how it is designed, but also have discovered its flaws?
Are you constantly complaining about how things should be better engineered and come up with suggestions how to improve them?
In that case, you could be the perfect fit to our testing team!
We are the Group for System Testing & Test Lead at Electrical & Software Architecture at Volvo Group Trucks Technology in Gothenburg.
To be more precise; we are a group of passionate testers who refuse to see testing as anything else than a form of art.
Our humble ambition is to become the best automotive testers in the world, combining edge-cutting automated testing and mastering the art of manual exploratory testing.
What do we do?
Together with our friends, we are developing and testing the best trucks in the world.
We test the electrical system where most of the software in our vehicles is located. We constantly improve our test methods and we combine the most suitable test methodologies to excel.
Within our scope of responsibility lies the work with development of new test methods, processes, tools and the need for test equipment. And we test, test and test!
Why do we do that?
We do this in order to secure that the electrical system (the soul of the truck) is behaving according to requirements as well as the customer’s high expectation on our products and thereby being a candidate for release.
In essence we are a group of highly motivated and skilled engineers that love our work and use our creativity and current tools to secure product quality. As a part of this group you will get a very good overview of the trucks complete electrical system and the trucks functionality.
We trust the individual and act as a team, are close to the product and provide an opportunity for professional and personal growth.
We are currently looking for a bug-hungry System Test Engineer who wants to be part of system testing to make sure that our customers can enjoy problem-free premium products.
The role includes the nobility of real, hands-on, dirt-under-your-fingernails work; you will spend most of your time in-vehicle together with other test engineers or reporting your test result back to developers.
You have been working with test for several years, but have remained eager to report new issues, explore new ways of testing and love to discover new technology.
We also believe that you are genuinely interested in automotive, electronics engineering and software.
You are curious with an eye for details and do not settle until perfection is reached.
On top of that you are customer-focused, enjoy working in teams as well as individually and love testing.
Testing and automotive are the two words that really excite you!
