What will I be working on?
You will be working on some real and challenging hardware engineering projects. Working with the team to build hardware for next-generation automobiles - electric and connected will be your key task.
The first product to come out of our stable is the S340 - a smart electric scooter. For the S340 to be a scooter that we would love to ride every day, it had to have the specs that make us happy, which means it had to be powered by the best sub-systems. Something that we couldn’t pick from the market. Simply put we had to build all systems from scratch - an IP67 rated Lithium-ion battery pack which delivers powers to match performance with existing petrol scooters, a smart battery management system, a compact, efficient and smart onboard charger and a smart vehicle control unit with a touchscreen dashboard built for exterior use.
As a Product Manager for the Hardware team, your scope will cover these systems and we know that’s a handful. But if you love challenges, automobiles, the electric future and working with some of the best designers, engineers, software developers and smart folks from other disciplines you can read on.
