Full-time

Boosted is building fun, lightweight electric vehicles. We dream about sustainable, hassle-free transportation. We are filled with people passionate about robots and action sports. We participated in the Y Combinator startup incubator (S’12) and are supported by some of Silicon Valley’s most notable VCs and entrepreneurs.

Fast, fun, simple electric vehicles are our focus and our passion. We make the world’s most advanced electric longboard. With three models to fit the most extreme action sports enthusiast to the casual commuter, the Boosted board is a powerful and reliable paradigm shift in transportation and recreation.

Boosted is looking for a motivated and talented senior electrical engineer to join our rapidly growing team. You will be a key member of the team, where you will be defining, analyzing, designing, validating, and testing all aspects of electrical designs for new products. You will be working in a small, tightly knit team, rapidly hacking your way through creating some of the world’s most advanced lightweight electric vehicles.
