Trucks VC portfolio

Jun 28

Gatik is leading the way in autonomous middle-mile delivery by developing a safe, efficient, autonomous delivery solution that addresses real pain points for the retail industry. Operating on fixed, predetermined routes, we are the first company to develop and deploy light/medium duty autonomous box trucks. 

Founded in 2017, we are building new concepts and groundbreaking solutions for autonomous vehicles to ensure goods are transported between business locations both efficiently and affordably in city environments. Gatik’s autonomous vehicles have been operating in North America with multiple Fortune 500 retail partners including Walmart, Loblaws, and others yet to be announced publicly. These partnerships are a first in the AV industry: this kind of middle-mile integration with major retailers has never been done before, marking the first-ever deployment of a hub-and-spoke AV delivery model.

Are you a curious and hands-on individual? Do you enjoy solving unique problems and venturing into unknown territory? Are you able to organize your own work as part of a team working towards a common goal?

You are familiar with computers and electronics as well as the mechanical aspects of trucks and feel confident in performing minor mechanical repairs and maintenance. You feel comfortable working with mechanics and with engineers. Additionally you maintain a clean and tidy workshop and pride yourself on the quality of your work. 

Remuneration is as a salary in the range of $55,000 to $65,000 dependent on qualifications and contribution.
