Volvo Group is world leader in Electromobility. In summer 2016 we established a truly customer oriented team, working closely together to drive the development of new technology, new business models and new ways of working. The new Electromobility team is responsible to run the complete Electromobility sourcing and development work including demonstrator vehicles for several of the business areas within Volvo Group. Examples are Hybrid, Electric Hybrid and full Electric Bus, Hybrid Trucks and full Electric Trucks, Hybrid and full Electric Construction Equipment and Industrial & Marine applications.

About the role

There is now an opportunity for you to join the Electromobility unit and contribute in the development of our new products. As an Electromobility Product Builds Project Leader, you plan and actively lead the cross-functional work within projects in order to ensure that the physical test objects needed for the verification and validation in the Product Development Projects in Electromobility are delivered in time and with the right quality. The test objects are assembled either in the production plant or in the internal workshops.

You will work closely with project managers, product owners, prototype purchasing teams, assembly functions as well as the development and verification teams. You lead and coordinate all meetings concerning the prototype builds addressing topics such as specifications, variants and bill of materials, ordering of vehicles, production-, prototype parts and software for our physical builds together with representatives from different functions within Product Development, Purchasing and Manufacturing.

Who are you?

We are looking for a person with passion to develop sustainable transport solutions with pioneering products and services for the transport and infrastructure industries. If you have a strong drive and like to have fun at work, this will be a job opportunity that will suit you well.

We believe that you have a result oriented mindset, which will help you to take on challenging work assignments in a successful way. In addition to this, you have the ability to learn quickly when faced with new issues.

Being the spider in the web and being part of a global organization, it is important to have good communication skills and to be fluent in English, both spoken and written.

We believe that you have a customer oriented mindset delivering complete high quality solutions that creates customer value. As we are solving a variety of different issues, often starting with limited information, we believe you are pragmatic, driven and always open to learn new things. We have a strong emphasis on collaboration and sharing, hence we expect you to be a team player that builds relationships over time.

What can we offer you?

We can offer you an exciting and global working environment which will give you valuable experience that will contribute to your future development within the Volvo Group. In this role, you will be supporting and driving the entire physical test object build chain from early technology/concept development to final verification in vehicle. Last but not least, you will get the opportunity to interact with highly committed colleagues from different cultures and to influence the development of our future electrified products.

We can’t promise you an effortless job, but what we can promise are some really skilled colleagues and some truly exciting challenges. You will work in a global environment that provides opportunities both professionally and personally.
