Job Description

At Continental, we’re working to make mobility clean, intelligent and safe.

Continental Digital Services France (CDSF) is a new entity dedicated to take up this innovation challenge in a unique way, achieving a fusion between on-board and collective intelligence in our collaborative platform.

With one of our Lighthouse project – eHorizon – we want to provide connected and autonomous vehicles with the ability to “see” beyond the reach of their sensors (and obstacles, corners, etc). By “crowdsensing” data from all vehicles, our platform can generate smarter insights and enable both on- and off-board systems to make better decisions.

We’re also working on imagining, developing and deploying new mobility services that will seamlessly be integrated in people’s overall experience with digital services in their personal, social or professional lives, especially in smart cities.

We’re convinced that our success depends on our team members and our culture. We’re looking for talented candidates to join our multidisciplinary agile teams (IoT, Cloud, Big Data, DevOps, Data Science, embedded software, cybersecurity, high-definition maps, mobile networks, etc). We foster passionate individuals driven by curiosity and innovation willing to have a real impact on future mobility services.

We have numerous open positions for junior as well as senior profiles. We’ve started to publish a few typical job descriptions (product owner, architect, junior and senior software engineers, agile coach, machine learner) in which you could recognize yourself. In any case, if you feel attracted by our human and technological adventure, don’t hesitate to contact us explaining how you would help us!
