Are you the kind of person who is passionate about connectivity solutions and what can happen when you merge technologies from different areas? Would you like to use your passion in the automotive industry and be part of the digital transformation? Would you like to work together with competent and helpful colleagues?

At Vehicle Connectivity we are in the heart of this transformation, our work is part of building a global telematics platform utilized by the brands within the Volvo group so we can support our customers increasing demand for soft products. Connectivity is a key enabler for Fleet Management, Uptime Services and advanced vehicle services like driver assistance and fuel reduction, targeting reduced costs as well as increased revenues.

This is us

System & Function is a team of 20 inspired engineers with a mission to develop and maintain system solutions and functions within the domain of Vehicle Connectivity. We drive the systems engineering work along with pre-studies and early investigations in the area as well as define system-level strategies and framework.

We can offer you an exciting and global working environment and a broad variety of tasks in a dynamic department with many strategic projects.

This is what you will do

As our System Leader for Connectivity and Wireless Communication, you will be the technical leader for pre-studies, which targets having well analyzed solutions that define how the project can implement the product change. For smaller pre-studies you will do the analysis yourself, and for large pre-studies you will lead a team that together performs the necessary investigations.

You will be responsible for reviewing input requirements and identifying possible solutions, analyze and anchor them until a recommendation can be made taking project scope, current platform and technical limitations into consideration. You will also work close to agile software development teams to support implementation of proposed solutions.

This is you

In this role, you will be both a leader and a pedagogue. It is important that you are self-motivated and good at prioritizing and planning your own, and when needed, your team’s work. You need to be able to analyse and solve complex problems, creating pedagogical overviews, highlighting important details and have the ability to anchor them with different stakeholders that not necessarily have the same technical knowledge as you. To do this successfully, you need to have deep technical know-how combined with very good networking- and communication skills.

We believe that you have extensive experience from computer and wireless networks in combination with a strong theoretical background. You understand enterprise networking features and network security fundamentals. You have the necessary skills to plan and implement computer networks that support wireless network services such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
