About canoo: canoo’s mission is to bring evs to everyone and build a world-class team to deploy this sustainable mobility revolutionWe have developed breakthrough electric vehicles that are reinventing the automotive landscape with pioneering technologies, award-winning designs, and a unique business model that spans all owners in the full lifecycle of the vehicleCanoo is starting production in 2022 and is distinguished by its pioneering and experienced team of technologists, engineers, and designersWith offices around the country, the company is scaling quickly and seeking candidates who love to challenge themselves, are motivated by purpose, and possess a strong desire to get things done.
The “canoo way”
Canoo’s success is the direct result of our disciplined application of our core operating principles and drills, which are based on three main principles: think 80/20 (“important versus less important”), act 30/30 (“reduce waste and increase output”), and live 90/10 (“we have each other’s back”)We hire based on “met” - mindset, equipment and willingness to train - and seek individuals that take accountability and deliver results while being humble, hungry to succeed, and hunting for opportunities to winWe train our team to engage with each other by modulating between their intellect (iq) and emotional intelligence (eq), applying facts, finesse, and force when they communicateThe principles and drills of the canoo way have been fundamental to our success, our ability to grow, continuously improve, innovate and are at the core of our day-to-day operationsOverview: we are looking for a senior motor controls developer with a solid background in motor controls related topics, and ideally some automotive experienceIn this position you will be part of a well-rounded, highly experienced team at a cutting edge automotive company in southern californiaResponsibilities:
