Who is Lightyear?
Lightyear is an innovative and progressive scale-up with one mission: clean mobility for everyone, everywhere.

Lightyear originates from the legacy as a multiple world championship of the Bridgestone World Solar Challenger® Cruiser Class. Officially established in 2016 by 5 visionaries with the dream to make this groundbreaking technology accessible to everyone, everywhere. In order to accelerate the transition towards a truly sustainable solution for mobility, we believe that it is necessary to completely rethink automotive design by starting from scratch, not limited by industry conventions.

At Lightyear, we all strive for the same goal. We have a team with diverse skill sets and backgrounds; all working tirelessly towards clean mobility for everyone, everywhere. We’re proud of our culture and live up to our core values: think independently, be bold, deliver the change, put people first and take responsibility. Our shared vision is what unites and drives us.

In addition you will directly work with our internal communication specialist and the team lead. This team is responsible for building the organization around the Lightyear One (the product we are developing, building and selling). It’s our mission to develop and maintain a flexible, scalable and sustainable organization to deliver clean mobility to everyone, everywhere. To reach this mission, we continuously need to be able to understand the (fast changing) context and the stakeholders of our organization. For this, our culture is of great importance!
