Job Description:


My client was founded by a team of what can only be described as veterans in the autonomous driving space. They have looked to revolutionize the industry. Currently with a mission in mind which delivers stock/goods via fully autonomous vehicles, unlike anyone else.
They currently have an army of light and medium duty trucks, working alongside other companies to establish the best outcomes for their utilities. They're currently targeting short haul B2B logistics for retail companies, however the vision is endless. The ideal candidate would share this vision.
They are uncovering roles all across the board, separate specialisations, fluctuation of seniority, all now open due to supply and demand. Despite the substantial growth, they keep, hold and breed the "start up" mentality. They want employees to enjoy their roles and feel like they are making a difference.
Led by a highly experienced team of engineers and researchers with vast experience in developing autonomous technologies, they provide both a service and a philosophy: to optimize customers' logistics operations to meet consumer demand for real-time goods, while significantly reducing costs and minimizing human intervention.
