About Canoo

Canoo's mission is to bring EVs to Everyone and build a world-class team to deploy this sustainable mobility revolution. We have developed breakthrough electric vehicles that are reinventing the automotive landscape with pioneering technologies, award-winning designs, and a unique business model that spans all owners in the full lifecycle of the vehicle. Canoo is starting production and is distinguished by its pioneering and experienced team of technologists, engineers, and designers. With offices around the country, the company is scaling quickly and seeking candidates who love to challenge themselves, are motivated by purpose, and possess a strong desire to get things done.

The “Canoo Way”

Canoo's success is the direct result of our disciplined application of our core operating principles and drills, which are based on three main principles: Think 80/20 (“Important versus less important”), Act 30/30 (“Reduce waste and increase output”), and Live 90/10 (“We have each other's back”). We hire based on “MET” - Mindset, Equipment, and willingness to Train - and seek individuals that take accountability and deliver results while being Humble, Hungry to succeed, and Hunting for opportunities to win. We train our team to engage with each other by modulating between their intellect (iQ) and emotional intelligence (eQ), applying Facts, Finesse, and Force when they communicate. The principles and drills of the CANOO Way have been fundamental to our success, our ability to grow, continuously improve, and innovate are at the core of our day-to-day operations.


Are you a budding aerodynamics engineer interested in helping create the future of mobility? Are you looking to create an impact on an innovative and multidisciplinary team? One where you will be given a mandate to explore aerodynamic modeling challenges, help develop tools used by our aero engineers, contribute to design discussions and other cross functional teams? Then boy are we glad you're reading this. All this position requires is a passion for aerodynamics, willingness to adapt and learn, and working through problems quickly. You will learn to apply the fundamentals of fluid dynamics to ground vehicles, be exposed to real-world test creation, instrumentation, and execution, and gain valuable insight into the tradeoffs that come with physical testing and how to validate simulation results. In addition you will learn industry best practices in CFD solving and meshing that can be applied beyond aerodynamics into thermal and other CAE disciplines.

  • Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) coursework and projects
  • Fluid dynamics/aerothermodynamics
  • Strong competencies in scripting languages (Python/C++/MATLAB) for processing engineering datasets
  • CAD based 3D modeling experience
  • Compensation will be determined based on a number of factors, including but not limited to years of experience, training, skillset, location, etc. Expected hourly range in CA: Bachelors Program $25/hr - Masters Program - $35/hr.

  • FSAE or other applied aerodynamics experience (club and/or research based)
  • Project based design experience with CFD software (Star-CCM+, Ansys Fluent, OpenFOAM)
