Application Developers - Polestar Digital

In 2022, Polestar aims to hire many new application developers for its Digital department. This includes back end, front end and full stack developers, both senior and junior in terms of experience.

Key technologies at Polestar include Node.js, Typescript, React.js, GraphQL, .NET Core, C#

If you are reading this, you probably already know that Polestar is an electric car brand. We work hard to create a unique experience for the customer, owner, and driver. The thrill of driving the car, the digital experience of buying, owning, and controlling a Polestar require us to push the limits of technology and software development. Sustainability has been there from the beginning, and we have set a moonshot goal for climate-neutral cars in 2030. There is an ocean of opportunities in this for talented IT professionals who want to dive in and make a difference.


About the Digital department

Polestar’s Digital department is a key enabler of the entire business, leveraging best-of-breed technology to create critical digital products across several domains.

Two of the most customer-facing domains are called Digital Commerce Solutions and Customer Acquisition & Services (CAS) and both have ambitious growth plans in 2022.

CAS delivers digital solutions that enable the acquisition of new customers and provides services to existing customers. The primary goal is to provide a world-class experience in both physical and digital touchpoints. The domain is a key enabler of Polestar's overall strategy as a D2C brand and the increasingly important aftermarket business. Product areas within the area include the website, Sales & CRM tools, Customer Interactions (test drive, Spaces), In-car and Mobile apps and Ownership Experience (charging, service booking).

Digital Commerce Solutions is responsible for the delivery of D2C and B2B digital solutions to be consumed by the different customer journeys for both Retail and Fleet customers. Product areas found within Commerce include Polestar’s Car Configurator tool, Digital Storefront (pre-owned, extras webshop), Checkout, Order & Delivery, as well as Financial Services Partner integrations and the Fleet business.

Node.js, Typescript, React.js, GraphQL, .NET Core, C#

Applications run in AWS on a serverless architecture using lambda functions and services such as DynamoDB.

Whilst experience of these tools and technologies is useful, much of what dictates success at Polestar comes down to mindset and approach.
