Experienced Solution Architect

We are looking for experienced architects to spearhead our solution architecture competency group at Polestar Digital.

You probably already know that Polestar is an electric performance 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.

Let us describe the challenge we offer

Approaching a new challenge and finding the best solution requires a good methodology. Analyzing the big picture, understanding the business, and collaborating with other roles when crafting a solution are key elements for a solution architect. Are you an experienced solution architect who can guide and coach others in arriving at the best solution? And can you make the entire organization work in concert?

The role

You need to have a strong will to drive the process of finding the best digital solutions for Polestar and continuously improve our ways of working. The role requires that you have solid experience and a leadership proclivity. You will drive the competency group and be responsible for onboarding and coaching solution architects. At the same time, you will actively work as a solution architect, supporting several product areas and domains.

The landscape

Our primary cloud platform is AWS and serverless, where we develop and run our in-house applications. Here we also create business logic and flows when establishing business processes and capabilities using bought commercial software products where Mulesoft acts as an integration layer.

We often develop differentiating capabilities in-house, but our system landscape also includes many commercial products like Salesforce, SAP etc.

Regardless of technology and the inner workings of commercial products, we ensure they follow our core principles when interacting in the system landscape. We have a capability-centric view of our system landscape; one capability can be delivered from a combination of multiple systems. Each system must have a clear boundary definition and be possible to be replaced as the landscape is changing. Polestar is treading uncharted grounds and therefore speed; agility and flexibility are key. Decoupling and autonomy are important, our strategy is to make use of serverless and fully managed services in an event-driven microservice architecture without taking on responsibility for infrastructure.

Our technical development makes use of .NET Core, Node.js, Typescript, React.js, GraphQL.

Who you are

You are most likely a person who is always focused on finding solutions and loves a good problem. Static is boring to you, changes and new information is exciting. The biggest satisfaction you know of is combining your business understanding, technical knowledge and selling the ideas behind your solution using your strong communication skills. You know perfectly well that it doesn’t help to be right about something if you can sell it. Addressing business leads and development teams is different and you easily adapt your communication style to create understanding.

Through your career as a solution architect, you have become confident and colleagues from both business and technology domains turn to you for guidance. You enjoy coaching others and helping them grow more competent.

Technically you have a background in development before you started taking on architect roles. We are using serverless which is different in more ways than you might think if this is new to you. It is a big plus if you have a solid experience in serverless, otherwise, you will need to put in a big effort to learn.

To succeed in this role, you can easily communicate with peers globally; primarily in Sweden, China and USA. At Polestar, you will be part of a cross-functional and international team, with English as a natural language for written and spoken communication. Since Polestar’s in a scale-up phase you thrive by working in a fast-paced environment.

People at Polestar

We know that a change is needed. We also know that each one of us can help bring about that change. Our commitment to becoming climate-neutral by 2040 is just as important to us as being inclusive, diverse, and innovative. Together, we are creating, collaborating and experimenting to usher in a new era of sustainable mobility.

We are an electric performance brand, determined to improve the society we live in.

 Is this you? If you are interested in joining the Polestar family, don't wait with submitting your application. We apply a continuous selection process and the job post will be open until the position is filled.

Are you ready for the journey? Which is electric by the way...
