EXPLORE OUR

OXA

What today is a dynamic and fast-growing scale-up with 300+ employees in the UK and Canada was founded out of Oxford University in 2014 by Professors Paul Newman and Ingmar Posner.

A world leader in autonomous vehicle technology, Oxa empowers customers to bring autonomy to whatever domain they operate in. What makes us different is that our software enables Universal Autonomy™, allowing any vehicle of any size and in any location to operate autonomously — safely, securely and efficiently. Because it doesn’t need wi-fi to function, it even works deep underground.

Scalable and modular, our platforms are customisable to customers’ needs. Creating them requires us to draw on principles of physics, robotics, machine learning, maths and AI. It’s a dynamic, ever-evolving mix that has our team always striving for better, safer, more sustainable solutions that work in the real world. For those who join us, the challenges we undertake together are exciting, and the rewards are rich.

We take pride in our growing team and in our culture, which prioritises learning and playing to your strengths. For us, collaboration and diversity of thought are key to innovation. Together we create an inclusive space where everyone has a voice and feels welcome, heard and celebrated.

Latest vacancies

Oxa’s “family” — affectionately known as Oxbots — is fuelling our journey to be the global generational leader in universal autonomy, and to help shape a greener, safer future for both people and the planet. We are currently recruiting for a variety of roles across multiple departments.

 

OXA+LOGO+100+RGB

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to ‘change the way the Earth moves’ by unlocking the benefits of self-driving technology to every person and organisation on the planet.

Greener, safer means of transporting goods and people must benefit everyone, so our full-stack, end-to-end autonomy software is both vehicle- and platform-agnostic, making it suitable for a multitude of industries that use vehicles both on- and off-road. It’s low energy too, and has unparalleled safety architecture that enables it to detect ‘edge’ cases virtually and up to 1,000 times faster than traditional testing methods, saving time and emissions in the process.

As an organisation Oxa is open, curious, egalitarian. For us, our customers are at the heart of everything we do. So as well as meeting their needs now, we focus on creating long-term value for them as their needs change over time. We call it ‘inventing on their behalf’.

WORKING AT OXA

Oxa is where world-class engineers, outstanding technical visionaries, commercial masterminds and more come together to ‘change the way the Earth moves — for the better’. We are eager to know more, do more, and make more happen, at high velocity, at scale, every day.

As a group we are diverse, open-minded, collaborative, resilient. We value humility and accountability and share a spirit of adventure and fun. We ask questions of each other and of our work every day. We live our best lives — at work and outside of it. Most importantly, we are purpose-driven. We see Universal Autonomy™ as just the beginning in our journey to transform the way we move people and goods.

We understand that the best work happens when we are working with peers whom we respect and trust, and that the power of our individuality is our greatest strength. For us, every voice matters. And while each of us comes to Oxa with unique skills, backgrounds and motivations, we share a readiness to learn and collaborate.

As Oxa grows, our shared values and culture keep us on track, supported at every stage by deeply engaged leadership and abundant opportunities for personal and career growth.

Our diversity & inclusion commitment

To enable all vehicles to do more, we need all types of people to get there. Working with us is an opportunity to solve some of the world's greatest engineering challenges simply by being yourself.

We believe that diversity of thought fosters new ways of thinking about and overcoming the challenges we see every day.  So we embrace individuality and inclusion and together foster an environment where everyone has a voice and the opportunity to be the best they can be.

We don’t just talk about it either. We take action. Our D&I initiatives include a Diversity and Inclusion Panel and a number of voice groups that meet regularly; groups on race & ethnicity, sexual identity & orientation, neuro & physical diversity, gender identity, culture & faith and parents & carers. These groups allow us to hear suggestions, implement changes, track progress and audit processes and procedures to ensure continual improvement.

It doesn’t stop there. To ensure our candidate attraction is gender neutral, we use gender de-bias tools and everyone involved in recruitment must undertake ‘de-biasing your recruitment process’ workshops. Our commitment to developing a truly inclusive culture is an ongoing, iterative process that we believe positions us as an employer of choice for world-class Software Engineers, Roboticists and technologists.
