Autonomous Driving Software Engineer

Published: 2022-07-01 | Last Application Date: 2022-12-18 | Average salary for System developer / Programmer ~46 500 kr | Job Type: Heltid

Candela’s ultimate purpose is to speed up the transition to fossil fuel-free lakes and oceans. We strive to re-think efficiency in marine transportation to radically push the performance boundaries of electric boats and ships.

By combining sensors, computers and advanced submerged hydrofoils, our electric craft fly above the water, reaching speeds and range previously attained only by fossil fuel powerboats.

After launching Candela C-7, Europe’s currently best-selling electric boat, we launched Candela C-8 in August 2021, the first electric boat intended for high volume production. We are also venturing into public transport with the revolutionary foiling P-30 ferry, built for the city of Stockholm.

We are now looking for an Autonomous Driving Software Engineer to support Candela’s growth ambitions.
