We are committed to be a driving force in the transition to efficient, fossil-free and safe means of transport. Great progress is achieved by connecting great people, because together, we shape the world we want to live in.
At Volvo Group Connected Solutions, we believe that connectivity is the key to making a difference. With vast amounts of data, we are pushing boundaries for what connectivity can do in a transforming industry.
As Solution Architect, you will be part of a Business Area team, working closely with some of our Business Partners, Digital Consultants and Business Portfolio Leads in dialog with brand representatives regarding their current and future plans and needs.
You will have a holistic view of the platform and consider the entire customer journey and how all technical capabilities can achieve value for both business and users. This includes how to re-use the platform’s capabilities in the most suitable way, as well as ensuring that new development will fit in to the platform and allow re-use for future services.
You will also establish and drive the long-term technical vision and roadmap for the brand’s solutions, as well as support your fellow Architects in the product teams in terms of brand specific solutions and needs. This also includes driving technical pre-studies and investigations as well as driving initiatives when applicable.
Although you will spend a good portion of your time with the Business Area team, you will belong to a Solution Architect team together with other Solution Architects, where each are working on different brands and different solutions. We help each other with big and small, such as presenting findings and problems to the group so we can support and learn together. As the expert in your area, you will act as mentor and teach others in your area.
What we can offer you
We understand that you also have a life outside of work. A healthy work life balance is very important to us, which is why we want to make it easier for you to find that balance. We consider it a given to apply flexible work hours and a hybrid office – and that’s just two examples out of a solid benefits package.
Being based in Lindholmen Science Park in Gothenburg, you will work in the heart of a vibrant area that lives and breathes new technology like AI, electro mobility and digitalization with plenty of lunch restaurants. When the weather allows, we grab some ice cream down at the river or sip lattes from one of the nearby cafes.
Here you get an opportunity to work together with highly skilled colleagues in an exciting, global environment which provides a great opportunity for individual growth and career development. You will work in close collaboration with our customers, delivering cutting edge solutions and services.
In order to thrive in this position, we think you are a person who enjoy problem-solving and are intrigued when faced with a challenge. You should have the ability to work under changing conditions but still keep the big picture perspective, since our environment constantly evolves in unexpected ways. You enjoy working with people and business aspects as much as with the technology and architecture side.
You are structured, innovative and have a strong customer focus in combination with a business-oriented attitude. You enjoy teamwork, contribute with team spirit and likes taking on responsibility.
Your personality is your major reason for success, but we think you also have:
• Several years of experience as Architect in an international environment
• Ability to inspire and motivate stakeholders, individuals and teams
• Great communication and presentation skills
• Ability to build relationships and bridge Business and Tech
• A global and agile mindset with strong customer focus
• Capability to drive and lead a technical pre-study of an initiative
• Fluent in English – both written and spoken
• Valid work-permit for Sweden, if not EU-citizen
We believe that you will learn our technical platform on the job, but in short it is mainly an event driven micro service architecture running in AWS cloud. Java with Spring is the main programming language and we work with continuous delivery with infrastructure as code. User interfaces are either web portals based on mainly react or native apps on both iOS and Android. We work in a variant of SAFe with agile teams and PI plannings.
