Modis offering the chance to join ABB FIA Formula E Championship for six-month internship as Innovation Manager

Alejandro Agag
Founder & CEO of Formula E


The ABB FIA Formula E Championship has teamed-up with Modis - official partner for professional staffing and solutions for IT and engineering - to launch the search for an aspiring innovator to join the electric street racing series on a six-month internship.

The project - titled the Innovation Manager Challenge - was revealed today ahead of the BMW i Berlin E-Prix. Under the mentorship of Eric Ernst, Head of Technology at Formula E, the successful candidate will help implement and oversee a new software platform for the opening rounds of season five.

Both Formula E and Modis are particularly keen to hear from self-starters, drivers of change, problem solvers, and great communicators with a basic knowledge of computer science.

If you think you have what it takes to excel in the world of e-mobility and highly-competitive motorsport - apply before July 1 via the Modis website at

Applicants will be put through their paces with tests designed to measure numerical aptitude, logical thinking and behaviour heuristics. A shortlist of promising candidates will then be invited to participate in an interview stage, with the winner being announced on July 14.

They will get to work on September 1, with six months to develop and apply software used at official championship events. The internship will involve interaction with teams all over the world and hands-on experience at two race events.

Alejandro Agag, Founder & CEO of Formula E, said
: “It’s great to partner with Modis on this particularly exciting initiative. I’m fully supportive of finding the next generation of new talent and it’s fitting to collaborate with Formula E - the most competitive and accessible platform for innovation and advances in technology currently. I look forward to meeting the applicants and welcoming them to the electric revolution.”

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a smart, young innovator to shine in the highly-competitive world of e-racing and technology,” said Alain Dehaze, CEO of the Adecco Group - the parent group of Modis and the world’s leading HR solutions partner.

“Talent, youth and technology make for a powerful combination in the world of work, and we can’t wait to see how the winner will help to take Formula E to the next level.”

Nick Heidfeld, Mahindra Racing driver and eight-time podium finisher, said:
“Every role in Formula E demands a mix of smart talent and technological know-how - and the Innovation Manager Challenge will be no different. I think this is a great opportunity for anyone starting their career in motorsport.”

Stay tuned on to explore opportunities to dive into the world of Formula E and Modis.
