About Chargetrip

Chargetrip is building a next-generation routing and telematics platform for sustainable mobility. We are a team of engineers, product designers, and cleantech lovers — with a proven leadership team and the backing of some of the world's greatest mobility and cleantech investors. Chargetrip HQ is in Amsterdam, with satellite offices in Bucharest and St. Moritz.

Chargetrip operates in a rapidly growing market and has seen amazing traction over the past 24 months. Even though our team is growing, every new employee has a measurable influence on the direction of the company.

As a small startup, Chargetrip relies on employees who thrive in an environment where they are regularly called upon to translate high-level goals into day-to-day priorities and are often presented with technical and business challenges that extend beyond their comfort zone. We're specifically looking for people that are challenged by the fact that everything we do puts the end consumer first.

Benefits include a Personal Development Budget, flexible working hours, catered lunches, healthy snacks, employee equity plan, and a minimum of 20 days of vacation, no max.

So, enough about us.
