About Chargetrip

Chargetrip is building next-generation routing and telematics software for sustainable mobility by offering Smart EV Routing as an API based SaaS platform.

Our routing engine uses over fifteen different (dynamic) variables to calculate the real-time range for any electric vehicle (EV). Proprietary algorithms then compute the best route to a destination, including the optimal charge stations in between, specific to that journey, business logic, and preferences. Built-in predictive models optimise for total travel-time and travel-costs.

Chargetrip’s API is easy to integrate into existing charge-, navigation-, and telematic applications, optimising the UX for EV-drivers and the TCO of EV-fleets; owned, leased, rented, shared and autonomous. Our current customers include the Norwegian EV Association, Porsche, EnBW, EDP, and Be:Mo from Total. On average, over 150.000 EV drivers use our software every month; equal to 2% of all EV’s in the world.

We are a diverse, international team of engineers, product designers, and clean-tech lovers — with a proven leadership team and the backing of some of the world's greatest mobility and impact investors. Chargetrip HQ is in Amsterdam, with satellite offices in Bucharest, and St. Moritz.

We are a fast-growing software company operating in the similarly rapid growing e-mobility industry. We rely on people who thrive in an environment that extends beyond their comfort zone. We're specifically looking for people that are motivated by the fact that everything we do puts the end-consumer first.

So, enough about us.
