You will work in diverse projects, closely together with teams across different parts of Volvo Group. The role requires an open mindset and the passion to deliver great results every time.
You are an expert problem solver who apply analytics in our most challenging areas. You like complexity. You drive all phases of problem solving, from business understanding, data understanding, data structuring, data modeling, and giving recommendations to engineers and management teams.
You support the solving of urgent quality issues and manage complex challenges in areas of data mining, optimization and data visualization.
You are comfortable & passionate about starting & setting up new projects & investigations and are equally interested in discussing business value and implementation with managers as you are discussing technical problems & solutions with the engineers.
