Hard-working people, solving far-reaching challenges
Help us to build the future of safer autonomy
We’re engineers, scientists, developers, and designers. We’re problem-solvers, dreamers, pioneers, innovators, creatives and pragmatists. We’re new hands and accomplished pros.
We drink tea and obsess over coffee. We bake, cook and eat biscuits. We cycle, run, dance, climb and read. We’re gamers, motorsport watchers, board gamers, footballers and foosballers.
We come to work because we love solving difficult problems and by doing so, we believe the benefits of safe autonomous transportation should be felt by all.

What we value
Five celebrated its 5th birthday in 2020 but we’re still very much a start-up. We’re working in a fast paced, progressive and ground-breaking space, that has the potential to change the world in which we live.

We value our people and their diversity. We work hard to create an environment where everyone can thrive, flourish and grow, as well as one that promotes diversity.
Perpetual Improvement
Perpetual Improvement
We strive to continually improve; as individuals, each other, our teams, our products and our company.
Science Engineered
We rigorously apply our mastery to intentionally design products that solve customer problems. Not more, not less.

Impact Everyday
We believe in making a difference on a daily basis. This happens by empowering the right people in the right environment.
Perpetual Improvement
Our values are underpinned by the implicit belief that we are “thoughtful and considerate humans” which is evidenced in our communication and by virtue of the value we place on team success over individual achievement.
Our interview process
Getting to know you
An initial chat with our TA team to get to know a bit more about you, your background, experience and interests. Also to tell you a bit more about us and the role.
First interview
Here we start to dive in to your technical skills and experience to see if you're a fit for the role. We also give you an opportunity to talk to our engineers about any technical questions you may have.
Technical test
We use a range of technical tasks to help us to assess candidate skills and technical depth and breadth. Hopefully you'll find the tasks fun at the same time.
Final interview
We finish our process with several interviews across areas like behaviours, architecture, coding, algorithms etc, that help us to round off our picture of you as a potential member of the Five family.
Decision and feedback
Hopefully we can conclude the process with a positive outcome and an offer to join Five. We always endeavour to provide honest and constructive feedback and truly value the time candidates invest with us.
Benefits
As a company we care deeply about people and have built a competitive reward and benefits package that caters for the needs of our team. From mental well being and physical health, through to helping to provide for our employees future financial security… and a lot more in between!

We also have a great range of (essential) employee swag. Everyone loves good merch!
What we do is always interesting and evolves quickly. We work well as a team and it’s rewarding to get things done.
