Vehicle Control Systems Engineer

Sv. Nedelja, Croatia


Rimac Automobili is a technological powerhouse, manufacturing electric supercars and providing full tech solutions to global automotive manufacturers. Our teams have developed both hardware and software solutions for the Concept_One, as well as for numerous public and confidential projects, thus positioning Rimac Automobili as a leader in the development and production of high-performance EV technology solutions.

We are now looking for a Vehicle Control Systems Engineer who will help shape the character of our future supercars.

You will be writing control algorithms for the Vehicle Control Unit and the lower level Electronic Control Units. Your task will be to correlate subjective and objective measures of vehicle handling, interacting with system designers and embedded software engineers while dealing with every car system.

The VCU controls main car functions and all ECU subsystems, including: the BCU, the PDU, DC/DC, the motor controller, cooling algorithms, and torque control device (including torque vectoring). Your workplace will be very dynamic and will include many different and interesting tasks, from the development of control algorithms to supporting embedded software engineers, right through to commissioning - all the while having endless fun during vehicle testing at various testing grounds, tracks and races. You can expect to learn everything about the architecture of electric vehicles and experience first-hand how the fastest one in existence works.

If you want to be a part of our team and work on challenging and exciting projects which aim to redefine the automotive and technology industries, get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
