VCU Developer (Embedded SW Integrator) (m/f)

Sv. Nedelja, Croatia


Rimac Automobili is looking for a VCU Developer (Embedded SW Integrator). As a young technology company driven by innovation, Rimac is always looking for talented people with awesome ideas.

Rimac Automobili provides technology solutions for various vehicle manufacturers and companies in other industries, along with the development of our own Rimac Hypercars program. Our teams have developed both hardware and software solutions for the Concept_One, as well as numerous other public and secret projects, positioning Rimac Automobili as a leader in the development and production of high-performance technology solutions.

You will be working on the implementation of embedded software solutions for the Vehicle Control Unit, which is the main powertrain computer in the vehicle. The VCU controls all subsystems: the BCU, the PDU, the DCDC, the motor controller, cooling algorithms, torque control device (including torque vectoring), etc. Your workplace will be very dynamic and will include many different and interesting tasks, from the development of the application layer of software to commissioning - all while having lots of fun during vehicle testing at various testing grounds, tracks and races. You can expect to learn all about the architecture of electric vehicles in general, and see how the fastest one in existence works first-hand.

If you want to be a part of our team and work on challenging and exciting projects which aim to re-define the automotive and technology industries, let us know. We would love to hear from you.
