Firmware Engineer

Build the software of the future with VanMoof


We’re upgrading our world-class product design team with a suite of talented software experts. You'll help us build state-of-the-art embedded systems which help people get from from A to B better than ever before. 

Are you a specialised Firmware Engineer who can create quick prototypes and turn them into working products? This is your chance to become part of our international team of inventors.

In this role you'll work on new electronic platforms for future VanMoof bikes, as well as improving and optimising our existing software. You'll be responsible for evaluating platforms, designing software applications, then troubleshooting them after the production phase.

You'll need to synchronize all software,  from the physical layer to application layer. In addition, we expect you to anticipate and learn real-world scenarios our users will encounter to improve system behavior. Every piece of software needs to match VanMoof's high production and quality standards. Being proactive and working seamlessly within a multidisciplinary project team is key.

You’ll work closely with our R&D director, industrial design and software teams, as well as external development and design partners.

Working hours 

  • 40 hours per week, Monday to Friday. But we always go the extra mile when it is needed.

We want someone to change the world with us.

We're convinced that bikes make cities more liveable and humans happier. You'll join us in our mission to get a LOT more people riding bikes... and go that extra mile to make it happen.

You’ll need to be as stubbornly focused as we are.
We do more with less. But everything we do should be utterly on-brand, engaging, and effective. It’ll be your job to make that happen.

And you'll need to be damn inventive.
We don't just want someone who can tick the boxes, we're looking for someone who can solve problems of all sizes, lean into the chaos, and help us get better every day. 

We're also growing like crazy, so you'll need the patience of a saint and the persistence of an ultramarathon runner (sometimes).

'Nuff said. Do you want to roll your sleeves up and get your hands dirty in the making, building, problem-solving and growing we'll be doing in 2018? Click the little yellow button below and let's get this party started!
