Your ideas in motion

Here at Volvo Cars, we’ve set our targets big. Being all electric by 2030 and climate neutral by 2040 are just two. We’re also bringing software development in-house and moving car sales online.

This fast transformation isn’t for everyone. But if you’re excited by the technological and sustainability challenges facing the auto industry and society at large, then you’re a perfect fit. Join us and watch your ideas shape the future of mobility.

Imagine it: pure electric autonomous drive cars.

We see opportunity. Do you?

What challenges excite you?

Meet some of our teams that are ramping up hiring activity right now, in preparation to take on some of the most exciting challenges in the history of mobility.

Production

Production

We’re growing fast and have achieved new sales records each year since 2015. We continue to build on that momentum as we strive to reach annual sales of 1.2 million cars by mid-decade. Imagine being part of a record-breaking team that’s becoming a leader in the fast-growing premium electric segment.

Software engineering and electronics

We’re taking software development in-house as a car’s appeal will be defined by software-driven functions and features. The next generation of pure electric Volvo models will run on our own operating system. Imagine developing autonomous drive technology and the next level of safety for people inside and around cars.

Information technology and digital

We meet our customers when and where they choose. They’re increasingly online – so are we. By mid-decade we want at least half of our sales to be online. So we’re focussed on direct relationships with our customers. Imagine shaping a suite of digital tools that build close relationships with people.

Electrical engineering and battery

By mid-decade, we’re aiming for at least 50 per cent of our global sales volume to be fully electric cars, with the rest hybrids. Our immediate focus is improving battery technology and range so that electric cars become the smart choice for more people. Imagine developing the technology that boosts the positive impacts of electric cars on society.

Design

We’re a leader in the fast-growing premium electric segment. Our product plan is focused on full electrification – we want to be a fully electric car company by 2030 – and we want to utilise and create new sustainable materials. Imagine designing tomorrow’s fully electric cars and the features that people fall in love with.
