Your core responsibility will be designing and managing the backend infrastructure necessary to support our charging infrastructure. Examples of what this could include are robot development and deployment, billing, demand management, site selection, and fleet integration. This will be a role with broad responsibilities to develop and deploy the infrastructure necessary to support our business with a high degree of latitude and corresponding expectations.

You are

  • Kind: Kindness is one of our core values, we value team members who are thoughtful and empathetic
