Data Scientist

We are Hiring a Data Scientist at Volvo Group!
Imagine yourself on the way to work, a regular Wednesday morning. As you drive by the familiar sights, you look out your window and see a Truck, a Construction Machine, and a Bus: all with the Volvo Brand. You look at the driver of one of the Buses you pass and realize that you can see how much they love their vehicle, in the way their eyes sparkle and by the expression on their face. You also see the satisfied passengers – someone is sleeping, someone is looking out the window relaxing, and someone is talking on the phone without needing to raise their voice, as the bus is electric and so quiet. As you look at these people and see their positive feelings, you feel proud. You feel proud because you are a part of building these customer experiences. You are doing it by creating new and advanced solutions for insights on customer satisfaction combined with future technologies, based on data and analytics!
