Your future role:

Alstom’s Digital and Integrated Systems is a world leader in developing, engineering, and installing rail control and signalling safety systems, products, and services. D&IS enables the safe and efficient operation of rail networks and trains.


As Verification & Validation Manager you will be part of an experienced and engaged team working with the development of railway signalling systems.

The main responsibility in the role is to lead the software development by ensuring that the software artefacts comply with their specification and that the overall software is fit for its intended use in its intended environment. Another main responsibility is to be part to major deployment projects by leading, organizing and performing the verification, integration, and test activities of a Signalling project, that can be either an adaptation of a generic Alstom solution or a vertical solution ranging from product development to project implementation, fitting the client’s needs in terms of Quality, Cost and Delivery. 


You will also define and lead all the in-house project activities related with Verification, Integration and Testing, either performed by a team in V&V department or delegated to experts in other Signalling departments. Cooperate tightly with Test & Commissioning to complement in-house with on-site testing activities.


When Safety is involved, you will need to discuss, and agree the overall V&V strategy with Safety Assurance Manager to ensure the achievement and demonstration of the requested safety targets. 


Your responsibilities will also include:

  • Define the Project Verification and Validation strategy in the V&V Plan, to ensure proper coverage and demonstration that customer and design requirements are met. Collect the contributions of all involved stakeholders (e.g. Test & Commissioning);
  • Optimize allocation of tests in-house and on-site, favouring labs to anticipate results and increase efficiency and coverage;
  • Define and agree V&V activity schedule
  • Ensure the application and adherence to internal processes and applicable norms, methods & tools, requesting deviations whenever appropriate;
  • Define the project Requirement Validation Table (RVT) to demonstrate the validation of technical requirements;
  • Organize and lead documental verification and reviews;
  • Manage full verification and validation of all configured functions, together with parameters and data produced on the project;
  • Monitor and follow-up execution and reporting of activities delegated to experts in other departments;
  • Define needs, architecture, and follow-up implementation of testbenches and analysis tools. 
  • Represent Alstom in front of customers, partners and auditors, for instance to provide overview of Test strategy, progress, issues, risks and opportunities;
  • Manage functionally the Project Verification & Validation Team and ensure/control their deliverables for the project;
  • Ensure independence of verification from design;
  • Select and manage subcontractors;
  • Cooperate with Test and Commissioning for the definition and follow up of Site Acceptance Tests
  • Manage work packages or WP tasks.


Working with Alstom will give you a unique possibility to gain in-depth knowledge of the technical aspect of our business. This is a company where you can make a career and development opportunities are part of our company culture.


All about you:

  • University degree in engineering.
  • At least 5 years in relevant positions (systems / sub-systems integration, embedded equipment, electrotechnical product development) in a highly complex and normative environment (railway signalling, aerospace, defense, nuclear)
  • Good analytical skill and previous experience in test & integration are required. In alternative, you will have an experience in system Engineering or Safety Assurance.
  • Knowledge of railway signalling and railway signalling systems is desirable
  • Understanding of processes for the safety critical system e.g. requirement handling, document handling and the generic application development process.
  • Fluency in English is a must.


The position is placed in a security class, and we will carry out a security check, according to Chapter 3 of the Security Protection Act, with a record check before a decision on employment.

As the employment for this position is placed in a security class, Swedish or EU citizenship is a condition for the position.

  • Enjoy stability, challenges, and a long-term career free from boring daily routines.

  • Contribute to innovative projects.
  • Steer your career in whatever direction you choose across functions and countries.
