Software function developer
Do you have previous experience from agile software development and want to contribute to the journey towards electrification of our future trucks and buses? Join us now!
This is us, your new colleagues
The Vehicle Functions group provides cutting edge solutions in the area of longitudinal control of our future mild hybrid vehicles. We also provide world class solutions in terms of drivability and fuel efficiency to all truck and bus brands in the Volvo Group. We are working in a cross-functional way from system/function design, software implementation and calibration to verification of our features in customer end products.
We believe teamwork and collaboration is the foundation for great products and an attractive workplace. Therefore we work in an agile way where everyone is part of a sub team of 5-8 colleagues with complementary skills committed to a common purpose. Every team plans their work in 3 week sprints and delivers solutions together as a team. We mostly use graphical programing tools such as Simulink or ASCET so that we can focus on the products we develop.
As our new software engineer for Mild Hybrid you will be part of a highly motivated and dedicated cross functional team that delivers Transmission, Engine and Power management software that enables electrification in our vehicles. You will be given the opportunity to collaborate cross functionally both inside and outside the release train, at the same time as you contribute to the team vision of delivering fuel efficiency and innovative solutions. You will be a part of a team that define, plan and prioritize the product backlog in agreement with stakeholders. There will also be occasional travels where it is important to build up a strong network in order to achieve your mission.

As a person you are visionary within the electrification area with a cross functional mindset. You are also open-minded at the same time as you can provide ideas and carry them through. To thrive on this challenge we believe that you possess following skills and competencies:
- You have a BSc/MSc in Automotive, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Physics or a related field
- You have very good domain knowledge in electro mobility system design software
- You have basic knowledge of Functional Safety (ISO26262)

Our CEO Martin Lundstedt often says that “going to work should be fun for real”. We think that too! Therefore we organize “innovation days” every 10 weeks where everyone can spend time on their own project for competence development, develop new things or improve our development environment. We also have social activities to get to know each other.
Your manager will be supporting you in your personal development. There are a lot of career opportunities in different areas within Volvo, both internationally and in Sweden. We will prepare you for your next step when you are ready.
