Job Description

Your car wouldn’t make it off the driveway if skilled teams didn’t work together to craft it in the first place. And with petrol and diesel beginning to look like unwelcome guests at a party, electric really is “where it’s at”.


So, how about driving and building the teams who are clearing the way to become the “go to” producers of electrical vehicles?


Because there’s a lot happening under the bonnet at this start-up. From initial design work, to stress testing of materials and putting everything together. With so much care and skill put in, you’d swear you see it radiating from the finished products.


And now this startup is looking for an experienced, hands on VP of Engineering to join their team in Germany. To ensure every aspect of this rapidly growing business is treated with that same level of dedication.


Your guidance and leadership will determine the overall success of the company, where you’ll have full autonomy to implement your ideas. You’ll drive the growth of each department from scratch, choosing teams to design and build mechanical and electronic hardware products. You’ll oversee entire projects - from concept, through to design and prototyping.


As one of the key influential figures in this business, you’ll bring a vast array of experience to help drive them in the right direction. That means you’ll need extensive proven leadership experience from the automotive industry. You’ll have extensive knowledge of electric vehicles; including R&D, vehicle dynamics, testing and control.


You understand the big picture and you’re motivated by long term success, but you’re also aware of the nuances in the smaller details of industry.


You’re good with people. Direct and transparent in communication, influential and capable of making critical decisions at high level. You’re collaborative in your approach, and able to lead high performing teams effectively.


This startup is an “up and comer” in electrical vehicles, already securing major partnerships with global car manufacturers with ambitious plans for expansion. You don’t need to have worked for a startup before as all automotive backgrounds are considered, but it’s important you know what to expect from a startup working environment. Unlike corporate, things move quickly here.


Having secured plenty of funding, they’re perfectly poised to take on the challenges ahead, while growing a talented and specialised workforce. Ideally, they want to hire another 10 hardware engineers before the end of the year.


In return for your extensive experience, you’ll get a market leading salary of up to 200k. Plus share options, remote working, free gym membership, and 28 days holiday.  


It may not always feel like the easiest road to travel - but the rewards for you, the company, and the environment are huge. As they pursue their plans to leave their mark on the world, here’s your chance to take centre stage, as a major driving force in realising these goals.


Are you the leader to drive this team through the next stages of their remarkable journey? Apply online now.


Everyone will get a response.


If you feel like this is the right position for you do not hesitate to reach out today!
