Insights from the Team:
Team Characters is part of the Perception and Compute Platform product area. We develop calibration algorithms to estimate the precise pose of sensors such as LIDARs and cameras on vehicles. Our algorithms can run offline in a controlled space or online while driving. We collaborate with other teams for calibration and write production code for safety-critical systems. Our team is close-knit, supportive, and driven. We rally together to tackle challenges and deliver cutting-edge calibration.
Your Role and Day-to-Day Tasks:
As a Calibration Engineer, you will be the linchpin in our team. You will handle support queries, engage in dialogues with Volvo Cars, and work on linear algebra and 3D rotations. Your role involves developing efficient calibration processes that we can rely on. You will also mentor and support junior team members, encouraging them to take initiative. Your week will include diagnostics, trimming, and checking with the team for insights.
Qualifications & Experience:
We are looking for someone who is not afraid to take the lead and has a comprehensive view of the projects.
- Hands-on programming experience with C++ and Python or willingness to learn.
- Algorithm development skills within geometrical vision (e.g., multi-view geometry), robotics, or a mathematical background.
- Industry experience in developing software, preferably for embedded real-time applications.
- Familiarity with software development concepts, such as version control, code review, continuous integration.
- B.Sc., M.Sc., or Ph.D., preferably in Computer Vision, Robotics, Machine Learning, Physics, Software Engineering, or similar.
- A strong team player who loves to share and involves others in finding the right solution.
- Enthusiasm for having fun at work!

More about Zenseact
Our software makes a difference.
Using AI-based technology to create the ultimate driver support, we’re fighting to end car accidents and make roads safe for everyone. Every year, around 1,4 million people die in traffic while approximately 50 million people get injured. Many get disabled as a result of their injury. We can do better.
One purpose, one product.
We’re a software company dedicated to revolutionizing car safety. By designing the complete software stack for autonomous driving and advanced driver-assistance systems, we’re fighting to end car accidents and make roads safe for everyone. Zenseact was founded by Volvo Cars, and the teams are based in Gothenburg, Sweden, and Shanghai, China. When we aim for zero accidents faster, we strive to speed up the transition to safe automation. This is essentially achieved by making cars updatable – like a computer or a phone. With regular software updates, a vehicle can be made safer long after its production. By accelerating improvement loops, shortening development cycles, and deploying high-capacity software quickly, we can make cars safer, faster.
Culture with people at heart
To achieve our mission of saving lives and ending traffic accidents is to go where nobody has before. It requires us to venture into the unknown, pioneering new technology and pushing the frontier of autonomous driving. While there’s no denying our determination and expertise, we must stand united to succeed. By fostering a culture of support and enablement – a place of psychological safety where all of us can thrive – everything else will follow. We call this a people-at-heart culture. This culture means caring. It means the company cares about me, and we care about one another. It means sharing, so we give each other energy and have fun together. Our culture is also about belonging. It’s important to feel at home and that we can be ourselves at work. Finally, a people-at-heart culture means well-being. So, we enjoy the flexibility needed to be and do our best – at work and in life.
Zenseact works proactively to create a culture of diversity and inclusion, where individual differences are appreciated and respected. To drive innovation we see diversity as an asset, which means we value and respect differences in gender, race, ethnicity, religion or other belief, disability, sexual orientation or age etc.
