Automation Engineer (Hardware in Loop)
It’s all about people
We have always prioritized people in everything we do. Curiosity about others’ needs is key to creating safe, personalized, and sustainable mobility solutions. If you believe in the power of people and share our respect for human-centered innovation, you will thrive here. Surrounded by brilliant, curious colleagues all committed to making a difference. We are people who care about other people.
At Volvo Cars, we are making bold digital visions come true. We aim to lead in the automotive world by creating a digital ecosystem built around making our customers’ lives less complicated. Now we are looking for curious, creative people who want to change the world through innovative thinking.
What’s in it for you?
Volvo Cars’ development centers around software (SW) and in our next generation vehicles, we take a giant leap into the future by launching a new SW architecture, hosting all the of the in-house developed and integrated SW. Propulsion & Energy is one of six development units within R&D at Volvo Cars where the teams develop state-of-the-art electric drivetrains and energy management.
The Propulsion & Energy unit is located at Gothenburg and Shanghai and includes SW development for EV charging components, motor inverters and power electronics as well as traction batteries. Our department, Software Factory, is an Enabling ART (Agile Release Train) within Electric Propulsion, with the purpose to provide infrastructure for SW development teams to integrate, test, and release SW products in continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) flows. And in your team, we are building the infrastructure for a robust and automated Hardware-in-Loop (HIL) test framework, enabling automated SW testing in a CI/CD flow.
We are looking for our future team members to develop and maintain an automated test framework for HIL setups that are intended for software verification on embedded systems. It includes the HIL testing related part of the CI flow, a framework for the creation of test cases and different other tools to making automated HIL testing as capable and efficient as possible. Enabling SW testers to create and execute test suits for software and function verification. These state-of-the art test setups are critical for testing software before the final product is launched. Hence, you will be contributing to delivering new SW products to the cars as efficiently as possible.
Since our team has an enabling function we have a high focus on quality, continuous improvements and creating new innovations for SW testing. Together with your colleagues, you will define and build these test frameworks supporting our current and future projects. Together with us, you will grow your competence and quickly learn a lot about the latest testing technologies and get the opportunity to create a wide network within the Propulsion & Energy unit and across the whole R&D.
Who are you?
If you are proficient in coding and scripting, test case creation, understand Software Verification cycles and you want to utilize state-of-the-art methods to create automated HIL environments you will fit well in this role.
We believe you are motivated by challenging tasks in a complex and innovative environment. Execution of challenging technology development and teamwork is your passion. You enjoy learning from others and sharing your knowledge with your colleagues, and you are social, structured, analytical, and a problem solver, then this opportunity suits you perfectly.
