Join our growing team working on the cutting edge of automotive intelligence.

Welcome to Acerta

At Acerta, we develop machine learning and artificial intelligence analytics solutions for manufacturers.

We help them improve part quality so they can build better parts for automotive (cars, trucks, buses, electric vehicles) and off-highway vehicles (e.g., agriculture and sporting equipment). 

Our vision: enable the understanding of the digital thread of data for every vehicle.

The complexity of our work means we need to hire the highest caliber of talent – everyone from our data scientists to our site reliability engineers to our account executives on the sales team.

Our diverse group of smart, friendly people likes to collaborate to get the job done. Together, our mission is to translate complex product data into actionable insights.

Our values


We use cutting-edge technology to solve problems in an industry that has been around for a century. This often requires creative thinking in business as well as development.


We believe in embracing feedback with a focus on humility and personal growth, which includes asking for advice at least as often as we give it.


We encourage open lines of dialogue between everyone, from intern to CEO, data scientist to account executive.


We help precision manufacturers improve the quality of their products with quality products of our own. That means we need to strive for excellence and take pride in our work.

What's it like to work at Acerta?

The quotes above are from an anonymous employee survey that we do every year. We also interviewed a few of our engineers for some deeper insight in their experience working at Acerta. Meet Lily, Arya, and Mohammed.

Lily Jin, Senior Engineer at AcertaWhat does your day-to-day work look like at Acerta? 
This varies a lot. Mostly I work on improvement, building infrastructure that helps us stream data from IoT sensors in assembly plants. I am often working on solving potential errors in the system, and improving features.

How closely do you work with others on your team?
I have once a day meetings. My role is kind of independent, because I’m the only person working on one piece of the project. It’s a supportive role for the application front end team.

What skills and qualities does it take to be most successful in your role?
Responsibility, problem solving skills, communication. Being detail oriented. Also project management is helpful to manage priorities and my own time is very important.

Arya Abawi, Machine Learning EngineerHow do you contribute to the software in your role?
We’re set up with a micro-services architecture. Instead of one monolithic repo, we have small pieces that are connected together. We are trusted with ownership over these components. This means I have a lot of say in how things are designed.

What kind of growth or advancement is possible in your role
There is room for growth both technically and on the managerial side. And even on the managerial side here, there is still an opportunity to contribute technically.

What would you tell a prospective employee
The job will build your technical confidence. You will start to look at things and say, “Yeah I can build that”. You will become comfortable taking on projects that seem too complex in the beginning. You will become technically fearless!

Mohammed AlNaggarWhat I something you enjoy about Acerta that is different than your previous role?
Acerta trusts their employees and provides great mentorship. I don’t feel micromanaged. I’m trusted with big tasks and  important decisions. This is a huge plus for me and something I haven’t seen in other companies, especially at the beginning.

What is your favourite part about working at Acerta?
The flexibility of the position. The HR team is helpful and very involved. Acerta cares about the culture and prioritizes their people. It isn’t all about making money and profits.

What would you tell a prospective employee?
Acerta has a huge potential since there are not many competitors in the field at the moment. The management team is extremely driven and intelligent, which makes me feel confident in the direction we are heading.

So, we’re always on the lookout for ways to build our company culture and sometimes, we can support our communities at the same time. We call that a win-win.

Here’s an example: a group of us decided to donate to the Waterloo Regional Police annual Backpack Challenge. We had a great time filling new bags with school supplies for local kids who need them.
