    About working at eMotorWerks


    Are you interested in taking responsibility for a good design of the software, from basic driver level to the high layers and user interfaces?

    Do you enjoy building an innovative product, from brainstorming the system requirements, defining specifications with the team, designing and implementing code, integrating, testing and debugging and finally having the satisfaction of seeing the entire system starting to work as designed?

    Do you feel pride for a well-designed modular software architecture so you can easily port modules to a new platform or drop in an alternative module with similar function and seeing the system work in a different configuration?

    Do you enjoy reviewing each other's work in a small team to find issues sooner and save frustration and delay later?
