We're creating a new Digital Lab, starting operations from our new Lisbon offices. This amazing city is our newest home and the hub for innovative and future oriented IT & Digital projects.

With empathy, transparency and a bit of magic, we build products across and beyond the scope of the traditional Volkswagen core business, our beliefs encompass lean and agile approaches, we believe and employ a low-hierarchy and equality-based culture.

We are truly committed to delivering quality code, and in order to do so we believe and apply TDD, BDD and pair programming relentlessly.

We are looking for applicants that are not only experienced in a specific tech stack (Java, Kotlin, Javascript, Python, Go, Scala), but also bring to the table their own innovative ideas, people who are not afraid to contribute with their expertise, be it at the pair, project or lab level. People who are able and willing to work across the software engineering spectrum, to keep delivering quality products.

So if change doesn’t scare you, and you want to be a part of this multicultural environment, we’d love you to apply!

  • We sustainably implement our iterative, lean, agile and XP-based development process while focusing on the delivery of a minimum viable product (MVP) through early validation with our customers
  • We innovate and iterate on lean and agile processes and share what works and what could be better
