We are looking for an Charging (EVSE) and Regulation Lead to join our TaaS (Truck as a Service) division.

We're working to solve some of the most challenging environmental problems in city centre, last-mile logistics, which means an opportunity to have a significant impact on the world around us, and what it will look like in the future, from your very first day.

We want to revolutionise city centre logistics in order to make urban environments better places to live and work. We’re creating the world's safest commercial vehicles by re-imagining conventional truck design principles, thanks to our full-electric drivetrain, and thus protecting vulnerable road users. Our electric powertrain also eliminates harmful tailpipe emissions, removing harmful pollutants that contribute to climate change. A crucial part of our journey is building a team of outstanding employees who share our vision for the future and our values of safety and sustainability.

You’ll be joining a world class team, backed by top investors that all believe in the future we are creating. We have ambitious growth plans for 2021 and beyond, scaling our team and activity at an exciting pace. We are a people-led company focused around creating an exceptional business, and all employees have a high level of autonomy and a platform to make a real impact.

What you will do:

  • Expert charging & energy related standards (SAEJ1772, IEC61851, ISO15118, IEC63110, IEC63119, OCPP, OCPI, Grid codes, etc.)
  • Expert charging ecosystems related regulations for relevant markets (EU, US - AFIR, T-ENT, ECE, etc.)
  • Represent Volta Trucks in working groups discussing charging
  • Build the fundaments to drive Volta's technological roadmaps linked to charging infrastructure hardware
  • Expert electric vehicle supply equipment technology for both alternative and direct current based power transfer

We would like you to have:

  • Experience and successful track record in automotive or electrical engineering
  • Knowledge in charging related standards & regulations
  • Knowledge in electric vehicle supply equipment technology (DC and AC)
  • Strong team leadership and interpersonal skills, cross cultural understanding
  • Advanced knowledge in charging ecosystems, systems and charge supervision platforms
  • Fluency in English is essential, additional languages would be an advantage, French in particular
  • Ability to work autonomously in the fast-paced, complex and ambiguous environment of a start-up
  • Positive and passionate, good team player

A typical Volta Trucks person:

  • Thinks and acts in a non-traditional way.
  • Closely shares our values of safety, sustainability and electrification.
  • Is action-orientated, proactive and works at pace.
  • Is transparent, progressive & entrepreneurial.
  • Is adaptable, resilient and open to change.

What working here will be like:

  • We are a small, fast-growing team so you will have a high degree of ownership and accountability, and you will be directly exposed to all areas of the business.
  • We are a start-up, so don't have a lot of structures and processes. Things change quickly and we acknowledge when we get things wrong and change direction.
  • We are a diverse business, from many nationalities and backgrounds.
  • We really value our people. We have a flexible & remote work environment and a great benefits package & pension scheme
  • We are committed to creating a first-class work environment. Every employee has a voice and we encourage open communication
