Potential Motors

DevOps Software Engineering Assistant

Co-op (8 month / 2 semester) / Remote / Fredericton, NB, Canada

You’re passionate about a sustainable future and want to build something special. You want autonomy to own your work and at the same time to work with a talented, like minded team. The pace and scope of building a category defining product and launching on a global scale doesn’t scare you - it excites you.

We feel exactly the same way.

Potential Motors is an electric vehicle technology startup focused on electric off-road vehicles. Our technology will accelerate the off-road transition to electric vehicles by enabling manufacturers to develop more modular, performant, and resilient EV products. We are preparing for the global launch of a category defining product in 2022 and looking for ambitious people to join our team in creating a new product category and electrifying an industry.

Here’s the problem we are facing:

Building vehicles today still largely relies on decades old methodologies that approach hardware development in a very water-fall approach that is time consuming and costly. At Potential Motors, we are a software driven company at heart, and we approach everything with the same agile attitude that has accelerated software companies since the turn of the century, including when we build hardware.

As part of the DevOps engineering team, you’ll play a key role in keeping all the engineering teams pushing forward and pushing the boundaries by providing state-of-the-art infrastructure and services that support their work.

Here’s where you’ll come in from September 2022 - April 2023:

  • Setting up tests (in simulation and on hardware)

  • Running tests

  • Data analysis and logging

  • Implementation CI/CD systems (continuous integration/continuous delivery)

Who we are looking for:

  • CS engineering students (preferred)

  • Strong problem solving and analytical skills

  • Knowledge of ROS (Robot Operating Systems)

  • Ability to work in a multi-disciplinary team

  • Strong time management skills

What it’s like to work with us:

  • $18-22 / hour

  • Ongoing mentorship after your co-op is complete

  • Freedom and flexibility in work-life balance

  • You will work with something real - you will see your work driving!

  • Develop a detailed understanding of current and future technology in electric vehicles

  • Team Building Events

PM Mentorship Program:

Many of our team members can point back to earlier in their careers to a previous employer / prof / mentor who played a big role in their own career growth. In turn, we want to provide you with the same access to someone a bit further in their career, even after you’ve left Potential Motors, as a resource as you continue on in school & step into your career (ideally, a career with us ;)

Thank you!

We recognize that applying for co-ops is a time consuming process, and we appreciate the time and effort you have put into your application with us. We will reach out to set up an interview if we would like to move forward with your application.

Potential Motors is an equal opportunity employer.
