Developers work in small teams of about 7-8 people each. We focus on minimal overhead and bureaucracy as we want to ensure independence and that decision power stays within the teams.

  • Using low level Linux/POSIX APIs
  • Yocto, BuildRoot or another Linux distribution build system
  • Focus on quality and doing things right

What’s in it for you?

  • Be part of a journey to develop the car owner experience of the future
  • Competitive salary and pension scheme
  • Flexible working hours and location
  • Employee discounts on cars (incl. leases and repairs) for yourself and your family
