Want to be part of transforming road freight – for good? Einride is showing the world a new way to move, based on the latest digital, electric and autonomous technologies. Through freight capacity as a service, we enable businesses around the world to accelerate towards their sustainability goals.
Founded in 2016, Einride became the first company in the world to deploy a cab-less autonomous electric vehicle on a public road (Sweden, 2019). In 2022, we were the first to successfully operate such a vehicle on a US public road. Today our award-winning technology has been launched across 8 countries (and counting). Our clients are some of the world’s biggest shippers, including Fortune 500 companies.
At Einride we develop our own autonomous driving stack, and the ADS Hardware Team - where you would be joining - is a key enabler for this.
The ADS Hardware Team
The ADS Hardware Team is responsible for the complete Autonomous Driving System Hardware, meaning providing a high performance, solid and reliable home for Einrides Autonomous Driving Software. Together they push the boundaries of remote assisted autonomous driving and all-electric propulsion, giving Einride’s vehicles the stamina, awareness, connectivity and intelligence to operate in increasingly difficult environments.
As part of ADS Hardware the ADS Component team is responsible for all ADS Components enabling perception, connectivity and compute (i.e LiDAR, Radar, Cameras, Ultrasonic sensors, Cameras, Antennas, Network and Compute hardware etc.).
As a Component Owner at Einride, you'll be joining a top talent team of ambitious, creative, kind-hearted people who challenge conventional thinking, think big, and aim for zero.

You'll also maintain awareness of the latest supplier product roadmaps, acting as a primary point of contact both internally and externally.
Collaboration will be key, as you'll foster connections between Einride personnel and supplier functions to align requirements, features, and safety roadmaps. You'll initiate and oversee the evaluation of new components in collaboration with relevant teams and architects, coordinating and facilitating the RFI/RFQ process internally to ensure seamless integration and deployment of new components.
Your responsibilities will extend to ensuring the mechanical and electrical integration of components into vehicles, as well as functional integration and development.
