Dreaming for tomorrow is about more than ideas and ambitions. We’re already building the next generation of vehicles, using repurposed and brand-new technology and techniques. We’re doing more than dream, we’re creating the future of mobility and automotive for years to come.




The automotive industry is in the midst of a once in a generational revolution as it accelerates toward autonomous driving, connectivity and electrification. Join our team to design, develop and shape the future of our electrical and electronic systems; that’ll be your goal as you apply your technical expertise to help develop robust software in our vehicles.

You’ll also share your knowledge with others on a daily basis, including mentorship of junior software developers.




To succeed in your new role, you’ll have technical expertise in object orientated software development ideally C, C++ or Java. You’ll understand embedded operating systems including Linux, QNX, and Neutrino, and you’ll have good knowledge when it comes to software structures / architectures.  You’ll have previous experience leading development teams throughout a full development life-cycle. You’ll be a positive team player, have a collaborative way of working and the ability to coach and mentor less experienced Engineers to create a high performing team.
