Winter 2018 Signup

Round 1 applications close 11:59pm Dec 23rd, 2017. We are aiming to hire all Project Managers and Subteam Leads by the end of Round 1, so make sure to apply now if you want a leadership role. 


IMPORTANT: All applicants must read the Role Descriptions page for detailed descriptions of the Winter 2018 roles before applying. Check our FAQ page if you have any questions.

WATonomous is the only student design team to be developing a fully autonomous vehicle, an engineering objective that is challenging for Tesla, GM, and Ford. There is no defined solution for an autonomous vehicle. This will be an experience that you will not be able to achieve on any other team or co-op job. Over $100,000 USD in funding, sensors, computing and most importantly, the Chevrolet Bolt Electric Vehicle are waiting for you to transform it into an autonomous vehicle. We require serious candidates that can prove their responsibility.

Do you like a challenge? What excites you about autonomous vehicles and WATonomous? What are your goals and something you want to get better at in 4 months? We can help you achieve these goals for your future co-op work placements, or even for side projects. Whatever it is you fancy, WATonomous is set on helping you achieve these goals. While we do prefer applicants with relevant technical experience, we put emphasis on people who can prove they are passionate self-learners, researchers, and a team player. Please tell us about your areas of interest and if your application is successful we will place you in a role best suited to you!
