The Company 

Connexion Telematics Ltd (Connexion) is a well-funded and profitable, ASX-listed technology company supplying proprietary asset management and mobility software to the US Automotive Industry.

Your Role

  • A high degree of autonomy within a culture of discipline and innovation
  • The opportunity to build your team over time
