We are looking for a Solution Architect with expertise in Manufacturing and Logistics including Industry 4.0 and the concept of Digital Twin to join our team.

Let us describe the challenge we offer

The Manufacturing and Logistics team is responsible for the digital solutions used to build and deliver our cars. The digital solutions in this area help bring materials from the suppliers to the plant including Customs clearance, as well as steer the logistics and the manufacturing processes inside the plant. Once the car is produced the Yard and Outbound logistics solutions will support the distribution of the car to the customer including support for different Customs processes.

As the Solution Architect in the team, you will own the technical and architectural decisions for the team, valuing simplicity and being willing to challenge technical constraints and procedures to achieve robust and scalable solutions. You will be the visionary force behind the technical solutions and are responsible for planning and developing the architectural runway in collaboration with the Domain Architect. You will also ensure that solutions meet business needs and are compatible with existing architectures.

This position is located at our Lindholmen office in Gothenburg. We understand that work-life balance is not easy, and of course, welcome our employees to work flexible hours and from home a couple of days per week if needed. We believe in empowerment.

Specifically, you will design the overall technical architecture within the Manufacturing and Logistics area with the help of the teams and Domain Architect and Ensure that the solutions align with the enterprise policies as defined by the Architecture & Standards team. You will also provide the teams with policies and guidelines regarding software engineering practices to ensure stability, scalability, and performance.

Additionally, you will also:

  • Lead integrations activities and guide and support the developers, to secure that implementations follow the architectural principles
  • Ensuring that solutions development is scalable and global by design 
  • Identify and remove technical impediments, in collaboration with the Domain Architect 
  • Work with Digital and Technical Leads to align the roadmap with strengths and opportunities within the technical stack 
  • Constantly work on improving the Digital product/service/platform, not afraid to challenge the status quo 

Who you are

To thrive as a solution architect in this team, we believe you should be excited about trying innovative solutions outside the standard approved and embrace a culture of trust and complete transparency. We are also looking for someone who can be an active coach and mentor, with goals to expand and maximize the team’s potential.

To be a great fit for this position we believe you:

  • Are a seasoned Solution Architect with deep insight into the newest technology trends, have experience managing technical priorities within backlog and can make architecture decisions at both team and Digital product level
  • Have effective communication skills with the ability to align the organization on complex technical decisions, specifically on projects that span multiple organizations and business units  
  • Extensive experience with Agile infrastructure, environments, and deployment strategies/technologies to drive efficient working practices
  • Experience working with Information Modelling and in backend software development

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.
