System Design Engineer - High voltage systems

Volvo Group Trucks Technology – Electromobility is the global, strategic center for electric vehicle development within the Volvo Group. By 2040 the entire sales of Volvo Group vehicle shall be fossil free and already by 2030 the annual sale of Electric Trucks will be 100 000 vehicles. Electromobility is a key area for the Volvo Group to be in the forefront of environmentally friendly transport solutions for a more sustainable tomorrow.
We design a system where we provide world class solutions for AC and DC charging, distribute current to a powerful propulsion system as well as auxiliary loads and customer equipment. By doing so, we deliver end customer value for all Volvo business units such as trucks, buses, construction equipment and marine applications! Our group consists of highly skilled professionals with a background from power electronics / high voltage engineering, who share a passion for technology and developing products that make a difference for the Volvo Group’s customers and society
Since 2019 we are located in Volvo’s new center for new technologies; CampX. Here the Battery Electrical Vehicle stream is co-located and in 2021 the CampX will grow to double size and include also Fuel cells joint venture with Daimler as well as the Autonomous drive development – an inspiring environment!


You will work with the complexity of electrically connecting several components with different functionality and design on a voltage class B DC link and all aspects that follows with it: compatibility, requirement balancing, harmonize HW design with system/vehicle functionality and electrical safety. Add to this: combinations with AC circuits and relation to voltage class A circuits to further extend the system complexity. A big part of the responsibility is to make a design aligned with regulations and standards such as UN R100, ADR, ISO 6469, ISO 17409, SAE J2910, IEC 61140, IEC 60664 etc. The design should also be cost efficient and meet high performance requirements with quality over time.

Typical tasks within the team
  • Write and release platform requirement specifications
  • Review component designs and deviation handling
  • Develop and maintain S-FMEA
  • Concept studies: e.g. fault protections, functionality SW vs. HW
  • Roadmap and platform development
  • Product knowledge management, i.e. product ownership over time: education, problem solving, verification and log data
  • Secure Volvo product portfolio by participation in international standard committees
  • Develop Volvo internal standardization work
Who are you?

As a senior designer you will drive changes on your own and in a team with other system designers. You are expected to take decisions based on facts and engineering judgements, but you also need to have strong communication skills and ability to balance different needs. You have a structured way of working where it is easy for other engineers to participate in the system and component design development.
To be able to take on this challenge successfully we believe that you will possess the following skills and competencies:
  • Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (preferably within the high voltage area) or similar work experience
  • Documented work experience from high voltage or voltage class B integrated power system design & development
  • Documented experience from working with functional safety in automotive products and applications
  • Experience from propulsion systems in battery electric vehicles
  • Experience from development of high voltage or voltage class B power systems and components
