About Ree Technology

We are a stealth-mode tech start-up creating a new path for mobility. We’re reshaping how people autonomously move in metropolitan areas – making getting from A to B safer, more sustainable and accessible for everyone.

Our approach is completely different. Our driverless fleet of vehicles is already operating across central Berlin (in stealth), mastering manoeuvres that we believe neither Tesla, Waymo or Uber can currently handle.

Job Description

Ree is committed to redefine the way people move in big urban areas in a more convenient, enjoyable and sustainable way.

To help get us there, we need passionate, ambitious, hard working, creative visionaries to join the team. This is a great opportunity for everyone who wants to join a rapidly growing team to help shape the future of mobility for the better.

You’ll be joining a team of 65+ experienced, diverse, fun and open-minded people. The current Ree team comes from renowned companies like Zoox , Google, Waymo, Amazon, P3 Engineering, Microsoft, Skype and Uber and has founded and built various other companies before. Ree is backed by top investors (from Europe and Silicon Valley) with many years of runway.


Come join the future!
