Careers

Canopy Simulations have changed the way motorsport teams find performance. We supply cutting edge vehicle simulation tools to teams across a variety of formulae in motorsport including Formula 1 and Formula E.

We are always happy to hear from highly skilled engineers who may be interested in working with us.

Working at Canopy

We operate a fully distributed team, so the ability to work independently and communicate effectively from a remote working location is vital. However, we are happy for employees to make the best possible use of the flexibility we offer. Canopy staff have previously spent months working from the Alps, Italy and Portugal, to name just a few. As long as you have a good internet connection, the world is your oyster.

We stay connected using Slack, as well as regular video calls and catch ups, and we meet in person from time to time too.

We offer a generous remuneration package, an experience of the technological cutting edge, and a friendly and flexible working environment.
