Deployment of Initiatives starts after contract signage, implementing R&D developed solutions in specific Operational Design Domains. You plan, assess, execute and sign off on activities that assure and demonstrate that the solution is ‘autonomous ready’, before it will be used in operations and that it is continuously safe under operations. Activities include, but will not be limited to:
  • Own the safety strategy for Scania’s autonomous initiatives from deployment to operations, based on the solutions and related safety concepts developed by Scania R&D
  • Work with cross-functional teams to, during all project phases (concept, requirements, design, and verification & validation) identify, plan, establish, coordinate and follow up on initiative safety related activities, needed to fulfil the initiative safety goals and requirements
  • Assess, plan, implement and evaluate learning and development programs
  • Keep up to date with relevant trends and best practices. Assess and contribute to relevant upcoming standards in safety for autonomous driving.
  • Promote a safety culture in Scania Autonomous Solutions
Your Profile:

For this role we are looking for persons that are structured- and keen detailed oriented problem-solvers with a pragmatic and solution-minded attitude. You provide leadership in defining, implementing, and improving relevant Safety processes. You obtain results independently, as well as motivating people around you to work towards common goals and agreed upon targets. You need to be highly communicative and goal-oriented.
