For you to consider before applying for our job offer: In a small company organised the way we are, the traditional employer-employee relationship is replaced with a partnership. You cannot expect the same service, support, and infrastructure as you would in a large organisation. Things you miss might need to be initiated and created by you. You are regarded as someone who is really important in terms of how our company is doing, not just as someone who comes in and does their job. You will have more responsibility for the whole picture, and you will also be able to have a greater impact than in a larger organisation. You will feel a bit more insecure than you might in a larger organisation. How the company is doing financially has a more direct correlation to your employment. The owners will work together with you, but they will not manage the company - you and your colleagues will. You will be required to contribute and take initiative. You will have to adapt to the fact that not everything will be in place, taken care of or running perfectly. To work in this way open and straightforward communication is essential. This is a strong part of our culture.
Sono Motors

Sono Motors is developing solar technology for both transportation and passenger vehicles.

The Low Voltage Maximum Power Point Tracking Central Unit (LV MCU) is the brains of our solar kits and responsible for maximising the solar yield of our photovoltaic panels and converting the solar energy to a suitable voltage with which we can charge the vehicle low voltage battery.

We are looking for a motivated embedded engineer to design, develop and deliver our Low Voltage MCU software.

About us
Vision, motivation and professionalism. Creativity and trust. Love for our planet. All of this unites our current team of nearly 40 colleagues. Together we fight for our vision, which we want to achieve with a new strategy and focus of our company: Offering Solar Integration for the transportation industry.
Our technology is already being used by more than 25 B2B customers, who are testing our Solar Bus Kit and other solar integration solutions in a variety of vehicle architectures, including buses, refrigerated vehicles, cars and eTrucks/eVans.
Your way to us:
At Sono Motors, we want to attract people who will drive our vision with a high level of commitment and awareness of the impact of their own actions. We know that this is a high aspiration. But we want to be more than an exchangeable employer, because we want to make a difference with our work!
