About us

We are a technology powerhouse that designs, engineers, and manufactures the world's most advanced automotive technology and hypercars. Bytes to bolts, Rimac is where everything happens.

Our teams develop and produce both hardware and software solutions for our flagship, record-breaking hypercar, the Nevera, as well as for other automotive manufacturers’ vehicles. Working on technology solutions for partners such as Porsche, Hyundai, Aston Martin, Koenigsegg, Automobili Pininfarina, and others, gives Rimac a unique position of a technology leader in the high-performance electric vehicle industry. The stakes are high.

As a fast-moving company, we nurture a high-performing culture. If you are interested in joining, you must be prepared for relentless learning, adapting, and embracing new technologies. We expect an easy-going person, but also self-driven, entrepreneurial, and highly independent in their work, that will enjoy rising to the challenge and have fun pushing the limits of technology.

Our expectations are high. And we can only achieve our goals with the dedication and collaboration of our exceptional team. Our ambition is to deliver and go the extra mile. We need to expand our already industry-leading team, find the best people, and lead the charge.


We always wanted to be more than just a place to work. What we do and how all our team members feel is meaningful to us and we want each to feel like part of a big family.


We are looking for a Control Systems Engineer that will develop control systems and corresponding state estimation algorithms which enhance the performance, safety and comfort of multi-motor electric and hybrid vehicles. The key to successful control system design is also understanding the vehicle behavior at a higher, system level, as well as the interactions between various vehicle systems.


In addition to achieving specific performance targets, vehicle control must also produce a superior driver feeling. You will work closely with test drivers on automotive proving grounds and racetracks where you will validate and tune your software.


1. Responsibilities:


  • Developing control algorithms for electric and hybrid vehicles and their components
  • Developing state estimation algorithms for electric and hybrid vehicles and their components
  • Developing mathematical models of dynamic systems in the vehicle
  • Performing Model-in-the-loop and Hardware-in-the-loop testing
  • Validating control algorithms on the vehicle
  • Analysis of test data
  • Documenting test results and producing technical documentation
  • Communicating and coordinating with people of different technical backgrounds (e.g. mechanical and electrical engineers, test engineers, test drivers etc.)
  • Travel domestically and internationally as required


2. Requirements:


  • Knowledge of Vehicle dynamics and automotive systems
  • Knowledge of classical and non-linear control theory
  • Knowledge of system identification techniques
  • Knowledge of linear and non-linear estimation techniques
  • Experience with model-based-design in MATLAB Simulink
  • Practical / Hands-on experience with controllers
  • Understanding the dynamics of mechanical, electrical, and thermal systems and experience in modelling these
  • Ability to work in a dynamic environment
  • Good knowledge of English in writing and speaking


 3.Considered as an advantage


  • Experience with hybrid powertrain control systems
  • Experience with chassis control systems
  • Knowledge of optimization algorithms
  • Experience with Model Predictive Control
  • Experience in working with automotive systems such as ABS, ESC, TCS, cruise control, creep, and one[1]pedal drive.
  • Experience with IPG CarMaker, VI Grade and similar software
  • Experience working with CAN bus protocols 
  • Understanding of ISO-26262 Standard
  • Experience in version control (git)
  • Experience in requirements and test management


4.What we are like and what we offer


  • We operate in a fast-paced and challenging environment
  • You will have the opportunity to work on world-class solutions with cutting-edge technology
  • We work a lot, but also know how to have fun (fun teambuilding, crazy company parties, kitchen and relaxation zones around the office, free coffee/tea and fresh fruit, etc.)
  • Family-like and open work environment (subsidies for kindergartens, Christmas parties for kids, and presents for kids)
  • Financial subsidy for transportation
  • Additional and supplementary healthcare covered
  • Internal educations program
  • Psychological counseling
  • Dog-friendly office
  • Flexible working hours and work-from-home days – up to 12 days of remote work per month
  • Discounts at stores and clinics – for humans and pets 😊


If you are a creative, problem solving, open-minded, highly-motivated individual and you love a fast-paced environment and are up for the challenge – where were you hiding?
