Let's create the future together
At Volvo Cars, we’re on a mission to make people’s lives less complicated. We design our services around people, and we innovate to provide mobility that is personal, sustainable and safe. Do you want to join us?
Volvo Cars is on an ambitious journey to redefine what it means to own a vehicle during a time of rapid change in the transport industry. Volvo Cars is looking to redefine all aspects of the car ecosystem including mobility solutions, autonomous driving, vehicle electrification, sustainability, and digital purchases and engagement. User Experience as a discipline is a key part of Volvo Cars' strategy. The maturing User Experience organisation, which celebrated its two-year anniversary in April 2022, gathers insights about our users and redefines and elevates their experience of Volvo's products and services.
We are seeking a Senior Visual UX Designer to expand our Content & Services team, a team whose goal is to understand our user and partner needs to ideate, design, and deliver beautiful, on-brand, and forward-looking automotive interfaces that connect the vehicle to the rest of their digital ecosystem. Through your work you will improve the experience of the people that interact with our vehicles, helping us deliver a safe, sustainable, and personal experience.
What you will do
As a Senior Visual UX Designer in the Content & Services team, you will work on defining and building a safe and effortless experience for our users, to make the car their own by helping them integrate their content and services directly into the vehicle’s infotainment system.
Our vision is that your content and applications belong to you and should not be trapped in any one single device but follow you anywhere you go. Your responsibilities will include identifying problems to be solved, mapping out desirable and feasible solutions for our users through, for example, utilizing user journeys and prototyping that balance design aesthetics with intuitive functionality.
You will collaborate with other designers and ensure a seamless customer experience across Volvo’s digital landscape. And as part of a product team, you will communicate designs, ideas, and rationale with your team using data and customer insights.
As a designer you advocate for the user and develop a deep understanding of our customer needs and pain-points, serving as an expert for your product team and develop ideas for new and enhanced features.
Your focus will be in developing technically informed and people focused hypotheses and designs on how to humanize the way to present driver centric information to our users. You have strong visual design skills and a track record that demonstrates how you create and build on top of existing design systems.
The design challenges you will jump into will focus on how to most adequately visualize and communicate different states of vehicle functionality and do it in a way that connects with the larger platform system. Your bread and butter will be to understand and untangle complex technical functionalities and requirements and structure them in a clear and glanceable way to our users.

You’ve been designing for 6+ years for a consumer-focused tech company, so you understand what it takes to create elegant, consumer-oriented experiences.

You are a strong collaborator who can work with not only design partners, but many other stakeholders from marketing to engineering.
You’re a strong communicator who can inspire teams towards action and empathy for the user.
You have a people-focused design mentality, constantly looking to hone your design instinct through user feedback, whether that’s hands-on user research or a quantitative A/B test.
You have visual skills to deliver rich concepts and production ready designs that balance design aesthetics with intuitive functionality.
