About us

For future mobility concepts and in-car user experience, software is set to play an even more decisive role. Elektrobit is a visionary global supplier of embedded and connected software products and services for the automotive industry with more than 3400 employees worldwide. For over 30 years now, we have been developing pioneering technologies for automated driving, new vehicle infrastructures, connected cars, and user experience. We are a wholly owned subsidiary of Continental AG.

At Elektrobit we are working toward a world in which mobility causes zero fatalities, produces low emissions, and transforms your commute into quality time. In our collaboration with our customers, including Audi, BMW, Daimler, Ford, GM, Volkswagen Group, Volvo, and many more, we live and breathe our passion for automotive software and for the mobility of tomorrow.

Today we know software and system architecture are the key enabler to realize the markets expectation towards the automotive industry. Five years ago, you would have helped us bring Classic and Adaptive AUTOSAR together with hypervisor technology in a new architecture for our customers' vehicles. First approaches, such as seamless mobility solutions and feature on demand, are currently being established. But still, many questions about what a future architecture must achieve have not yet been answered.

We are sure you find the answers together with us and we can go the next step towards the future vehicle architecture! Join our team and help shape the future of the automobile.
