What does it take to work at Lightyear?

At Lightyear we are building an electric car that charges itself. From our experience at Solar Team Eindhoven we know this is only possible starting from scratch. We proved that working in a multidisciplinary team of highly motivated engineers, designers and visionaries enables us to challenge the status quo. At Lightyear you will challenge the status quo yourself. You will have the opportunity to work with world class partners and state-of-the-art technology. Together we build the product of our dreams.

Only talent is not enough at Lightyear. You have to believe in our mission, and dare to challenge yourself and us. We have a critical yet constructive culture enabling us to take on every challenge. Being autonomous is a must! Within weeks you have to be an expert on your own discipline. You have to love creating next level technology and accept only the brightest solutions.
