What will you do, as Supplier Quality Engineer for Electromobility Vehicles Battery?
The job as a Supplier Quality Engineer (SQE) is many times challenging and often rewarding. As an Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) ambassador you will during the projects be involved in everything from product development to quality assurance of the production lines on-site at your suppliers. Because of successful APQP work and preventive supplier quality activities, you will sign off the supplier PPAP allowing production to start at the supplier. You will also:
  • Monitor the quality of the development and the industrialization of new products at the Volvo Group suppliers.
  • Secure that the suppliers are delivering according to projects specifications and time plans. You also secure that the supplier can produce the parts according to the specification with the correct and sustainable quality level. In case of supplier caused problem during the development stages, you are entitled to demand improvement plan to secure successful implementations.
  • During sourcing phases, you will provide relevant supplier facts as a base for the sourcing cases. You are also an interface between our operation plants and the suppliers during running production and you will, together with our plants, minimize disturbance by steering improvements and ensuring solid actions at suppliers.
You, our future SQE, are a key person to solve costumer issues when root cause is supplier-manufacturing process. The job involves a lot of challenges and problem solving, but also a great amount of development, reward and excitement.
Now you know a little bit about us. We would also like describe who we think that you are, our new colleague. Since we don’t know you yet we probably won’t have everything right, but when we imagine you, we believe that you have an eye for details but also a good general understanding of the situation, being able to make risk assessments and focus on the right areas. You should also be a good communicator and a multicultural team player, both internally Volvo but also towards supplier management team since communicating and working with others is what this job is about.
We also believe that you really like to travel and see different places, because a lot of the job is done in other places and countries. Sometimes you will get the opportunity to travel to 3 or 4 places per months, even more. So we believe it’s important that you like exploring and seeing different places in this position.

Nice to have:
Something that definitely would be great if you have, but that’s not a requirement, is if you have any experience from supplier quality work within automotive business or have knowledge of automotive quality standards and tools, such as IATF 16949, APQP & PPAP.
If you thrive in a passionate environment for quality and find energy in facing new challenges to solve with suppliers then this is the job for you. Come join us in developing the future electric solutions at Volvo Group!
