(Yicai Global) June 2 -- 360 Security Technology has started hiring for auto industry specialists, particularly in the smart driving field, after the Chinese internet security firm announced last month that it was moving into electric vehicles.
360 Security is looking for a director of quality assurance, software architects and cybersecurity engineers, the Beijing-based company said via its Weibo account yesterday. The post did not specify how many positions are available.
Founder Zhou Hongyi announced on May 11 that 360 Security was partnering with Hozon Auto, an EV startup that plans to go public in Shanghai this year, to develop affordable smart cars priced at about CNY100,000 (USD15,670) each.
360 Security participated in Hozon’s Series D fundraiser, investing CNY3 billion (USD470.1 million), to become its second-biggest shareholder last month. The pair said they will initially cooperate mainly on capital and smart car cybersecurity. The tie-up will not involve manufacturing.
