Alta Motors

Alta Motors designs and manufactures the most advanced electric vehicle technology on the planet. With our first product, The Redshift, we are creating a motorcycle that is faster and easier than anything else out there. An electric motor means smooth power delivery, instant throttle response and flat, endless torque. We are a team of racers, designers, builders, and troublemakers. We make motorcycles because it's what we were born to do. Being a clean sheet design, every component of our motorcycle was made from the ground up. This obviously comes a set of challenges that are both tough and rewarding to solve. We are developing a team of programmers and engineers who are able to take on complex problems and make significant advances in the field of automotive technology. We want people who can look at the fundamentals of vehicle design and approach it from a whole new perspective. Further, we are looking for visionaries who can apply our drivetrain technology to a variety of automotive segments and find new opportunities to change urban mobility.
