Volvo Cars is launching one of the largest recruitment drives in its 89 year history, as it announces that it’s looking to hire about 400 engineers in the next year.

Most of the engineers will be working out of Gothenburg, Sweden at Volvo’s R&D headquarters. They’ll be working in software development, helping Volvo in its push to bring autonomous driving and electrification technologies to customers.

“Volvo is an industry leader in the area of autonomous drive technology and electrification, as well as the undisputed leader in automotive safety,” said Peter Mertens, Senior Vice President for Research & Development, in a statement. “We have the strong ambition to retain and extend that leadership, so we need to ensure that we capture the best engineering talent out there. This new recruitment drive is a reflection of that ambition.”

The move comes on the heels of the opening of Volvo’s R&D center in the university town of Lund, in southern Sweden. As of September, 35 employees will be working at the center.

Volvo also recently announced that it would be working with Uber to develop the next generation of autonomous driving cars.
