Job description

Transport is at the core of modern society. Imagine using your expertise to shape sustainable transport solutions for the future? If you seek to make a difference on a global scale, working with next-gen technologies and the sharpest collaborative teams, then we could be a perfect match. 

Who we are

Imagine yourself on your way to work on a regular Tuesday morning. You didn’t have time to drink your coffee, you woke up on the wrong side of the bed and the entire morning is just being a complete pain. You are stressed, you are late and you have that meeting in just 20 minutes that you have to get to. You also just remembered that you forgot the stove is still on from making your breakfast and you just can’t leave it on and you have to go back home to turn it off. But… wait! We are in the future! The stove switches itself off, your autonomous vehicle turns on and you just sit back and drink your coffee that you made to go on your way to the meeting. You arrive calm, relaxed and you even had time to read through your notes. And on top of everything, you nail it on that important meeting! All of this thanks to autonomous solutions that are becoming the norm.
