You’re passionate about a sustainable future and want to build something special. You want autonomy to own your work and at the same time to work with a talented, like minded team. The pace and scope of bringing an innovative product to market doesn’t scare you - it excites you.
We feel exactly the same way.
We transform everyday drivers into explorers. For each of us, exploration can be a little different. From the weekend hike to a new start in a new country these are the experiences that shape who we are.
We design proactive, software for vehicles that take on challenging terrain. Our technology enables vehicles to see the road ahead of them, making them aware of the terrain, helping them anticipate challenges and make smarter decisions.
We envision a world where every explorer can confidently navigate any terrain – whether on trails, worksites, or the moon. We’re not finished until our solutions are as essential as GPS.
The Operations Team works behind the scenes to enable the team to do the best work of their lives, and prepare the company to scale.
note: This is a grant funded position that requires you to be 30 or younger, and a Canadian Citizen (or PR).
