Software Development Center Lisbon – SDC:LX
Volkswagen Digital Solutions plays a critical role in Volkswagen Group’s strategy of being a globally leading provider of sustainable mobility solutions – for generations to come.
At the Volkswagen Digital Solutions Software Development Center SDC:LX, we focus on building high-quality user centric products, primarily for revolutionizing the digital sales experience, from point of sale through to car handover, driving business value, increased customer satisfaction and brand loyalty through growth in Volkswagen Group digital services platforms.
Who we are looking for
Product management lies at the intersection of technology, design and the business and we are looking for someone who can balance the act of being the voice of the customer and ensuring customer needs are met while delivering maximum business value inline with the VW strategy.
How we work
At SDC:LX we work in autonomous, well-balanced product teams. We tackle business challenges with a user-centered approach and cutting-edge technologies.
For this, we are looking for PMs who are team players who collaborate, who evangelise and keep up to date on utilising the latest discovery and user research techniques and have great skills in leading agile delivery.
We adopted Extreme Programming across our 3 domains of expertise. This way we deliver high quality (with test-driven development), focus on what matters (by doing short release cycles), and share knowledge and understanding (by pairing).
We use design thinking and MVP (Minimal Viable Product) approach to shape and validate our products in order to proudly deliver amazing experiences to our customers and users.
As an enterprise with progressive goals, typical projects may be large with multiple stakeholders, and we value PMs with strong communication skills, who are able to easily interact across disciplines and seniority levels, while promoting and implementing iterative and more outcome focused working processes throughout the business.
We play an integral part in shaping and delivering products that bring value to both customers and the business on an international scale, to millions of customers. We also support opportunities to launch, test and grow greenfield projects conceived from within our product teams.
Our working culture and environment
We believe in and employ a low-hierarchy and equality-based culture. We provide an environment where trust, compassion, diversity and openness are a big part of our culture. We regularly run feedback sessions and welcome new ideas in helping us to shape the future of our lab. Our people have a true passion for what they do, a genuine desire to go further for customers and to give their own careers real momentum at the same time, in an industry that is changing fast.
