As part of our mission to enable the freedom to move in a personal, sustainable and safe way we are now launching our first Battery Electric Vehicle, the XC40 P8 Recharge. It is powered by an in-house designed battery developed by our great battery team in Gothenburg.
To follow this, we are now working on a new electric vehicle platform and several exiting products that all will be powered by Batteries designed and developed in-house. With these new products Volvo Cars aims to be leading in electrification and, in 2025, every 2nd Volvo sold shall be a battery electric vehicle.
To deliver on this aim we will deepen our involvement in all aspects of battery development.
What you will do
Plan, order, prepare and analyse development and verification tests on high-voltage propulsion battery packs. The work is done in close collaboration with the system designer, component owners and the test operators in the test rigs. The rigs can be either at Volvo’s internal battery lab or at external suppliers. Specifically, the job will involve EMC (electro-magnetic combability) and fault tracing. Some travelling to external test sites for support and fault tracing will occur. You and your skills
You are a team player with strong communications skills and a genuine interest in technology. You can work independently and take required actions on own initiative. You are a fast learner with an analytical and solution-based mindset.
Your technical competence, as well as your ability to manage complexity in systems and collaboration with different teams should be strong so that you can make your own decisions and technical conclusions.
M.Sc or Ph.D in Engineering, Electrical, Physics
Experience from an Automotive OEM or similar development area
Experience from development work of the EMC property
Good knowledge of standards and test methods related to EMC
Nice to have knowledge in
Hybrid- and/or electric propulsion development
Test development and equipment
The possibilities to develop within this role and within the department are large. Your contributions will make a difference!
