Simulation Engineer

We are Hiring Simulation Engineer Powertrain Engineering

Imagine yourself on the way to work, a regular Wednesday morning. As you pass the city and the fields and look out; you see a Truck, a Construction Machine and a Bus. All with the Volvo Brand. When looking at the driver in one of the Buses you pass, you realize that you can see how much these persons loves their vehicle, in the way their eyes spark and from their facial expressions. You can also see the satisfaction amongst the passengers – someone is sleeping, someone is looking out the window relaxing and someone is talking in 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 since you are a part of building these customer experiences. You are doing it through creating new and advanced solutions for insights on perceived customer satisfaction in combination with future technologies!

We would now like to give you the possibility to make this imagination and pride your reality. Come and join us as Simulation Engineer!
