Software engineer with an interest in network protocols - Connected Cars

Connected Cars is working on an ambitious project to connect millions of car-owners with their vehicles by hooking into the on-board diagnostics available in every modern car, and we are looking for enthusiastic and motivated people to join us on that journey.

Our mission is to enable safer, more sustainable, and more convenient mobility to the world through responsible and transparent data collection and sharing. 

Our team consists of around 40 people from different backgrounds, brought together by a shared belief in team effort, fun at work, and delivering quality. 

The position
We are currently using Node.js, Python, Go, MySQL and BigQuery on the backend, Yocto, Rust, Python and TypeScript on our CAN stack, React on web, and React Native for our mobile apps on iOS and Android. On the hosting side we are using Google Cloud and several other modern cloud services.

We believe in release early, release often, which is why we run several daily releases using our continuous integration and deployment setup. 

Developers work in small teams of 3-4 people each. We focus on minimal overhead and bureaucracy as we want to ensure independence and that decision power stays within the teams. This means that teams have a lot of influence on how they work, what they focus on, and how they deliver new features and functionality.

As a software engineer at Connected Cars you will mainly be working with our CAN stack, implementing the different automotive protocols available in a modern car. You’ll work with our team of car technicians, so it’s not a requirement that you have previous experience in the automotive industry.

What we’re looking for
We don’t expect you to tick every box in our current tech stack. What matters is that you have some experience as a developer, you like to learn, and know how to leverage your experience across technology stacks and languages. 

But here’s what would be a good fit:
  • Experience in more than one technology stack
  • Rust, Go, Python, TypeScript or similar
  • Implementing network protocols and bit/byte fiddling
  • Continuous integration and test driven development
  • Focus on quality and doing things right
  • Liking to use modern development tools

You get extra points, if you:
  • Code in your spare time
  • Have GitHub or a similar account with sample code
  • Have Open Source development experience

What’s in it for you?
  • Work with one of the largest and broadest IoT/telematics data sets in the industry
  • Be part of a journey to develop the car owner experience of the future
  • Competitive salary and pension scheme
  • Flexible working hours and location
  • Company car package (configure a brand new car every six months)
  • Employee discounts on cars (incl. leases and repairs) for yourself and your family
  • Laptop of your choice
  • Cheap lunch scheme
  • All the snacks and sodas you can consume
  • Great beers on Fridays (and yes, we’re open to suggestions)
  • Strong Open Source commitment

How to apply
To apply, send an e-mail to, including the following:
  • Updated CV or link to your LinkedIn profile
  • Link to Github or similar with examples of your work
