About Rimac Automobili 

 

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.

 

We always wanted to be more than just a place to work. What we do and how all our employees feel is highly important to us.

We share a home at our headquarters in Croatia, on the outskirts of Zagreb. We work to build an inclusive culture where everyone can do their life’s work.

 

But big ideas need space to grow, so we are looking to expand our facilities soon, and move our global HQ into the Rimac Campus, designed around the employees. The Rimac Campus is going to be our long-term home, a place where we can design, engineer, test, produce and market our products, and enjoy doing so. 

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.
