Senior software and algorithm developer Localization

At Volvo Autonomous Solutions we are passionate about the positive impact autonomous solutions will have on our society. We are on a journey to create something unique, developing cutting-edge technologies and sustainable solutions that will change the future of transportation.

Are you an engaged leader with a coaching approach for developing people, organizations, and technical solutions? Do you thrive when guiding through change and are able to create a climate that is based on trust, learning and cross-functional teamwork? If you want to have a positive impact on our society by contributing to building state-of-the art autonomous solutions this is your opportunity; we are looking for a Group Manager Perception to join our team.

What will you be doing?
As the Group Manager of the Perception team, you will be leading innovation and learning towards building two of the most critical and challenging building blocks of the automated driving system; 1) perception software such as object detection and classification, fusion, and tracking, and 2) sensors and main compute.

To lead such product development, you will be working closely with a great team of highly skilled engineers, researchers within the Perception teams and managers in neighboring areas such as Localization and Motion planning.

Your role is to provide a collaborative working environment and cultivate passion, trust, and transparency through clear communication. As our next leader you will also set the roadmap and objectives for your organization and act as servant leader to get our teams there. On this journey we are unified by diversity, celebrating great ideas, and striving for inclusiveness.

In short you will:
  • Lead and grow the teams within the Perception area
  • Define roadmap and objectives for the Perception group and lead the implementation
  • Build and grow world-class engineering teams by developing a culture of learning and through coaching and career development
  • Ensure engineering best practices are followed and continuously improved
  • Further develop the strong safety culture in our product development
  • Serve as a role model of the culture and the values within Volvo Autonomous Solutions

Who are you?
We believe you are a leader with interest to engage and motivate others, working to build the teams with capacity and capability, making the most of individual talents. As this job is all about collaboration, we believe you need to be a good listener, communicator and that it is easy for you to connect with other people.

We are active in one of the most interesting and challenging areas of technology development and hence we value your ability to understand new contexts quickly and efficiently while being able to prioritize with a structured approach. As our business area is new you need to share our positive spirit, curiosity for new technology, new ways of working and want to take it to the next level.

Our working environment is highly international, and hence you need to be proficient in English, both written and spoken.

We also see that prior experience in production software development for complex software products is of importance for this role. The perception C++ software is designed to be robust, scalable, and optimized for low latency.

Knowledge of sensors e.g., lidar, camera, radar, and high-performance computational nodes as well as expertise in algorithms for perception are beneficial. However, we believe your potential, personality, and mindset to gain these capabilities is more important than having them today.

Are we a perfect match?
We offer you a chance to be involved in defining the future solutions within the transport and infrastructure industry where we together are the motivators to make the future of automated transport solutions happen.

If you are ready to grow, develop your knowledge and explore new ways of driving technology, then you have come to the right place. As your future manager, I truly believe that what makes you thrilled going to work will make you successful. That means I will support you in your personal development and help you follow your professional dreams.
