About Chargetrip

Chargetrip is building a next-generation routing and telematics platform for sustainable mobility. We are a team of 12 — predominantly 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.

About the job

If you are motivated to make the world a little better, solve real challenges, and have a real impact, Chargetrip is the place for you. We expect that you will work with our Design, Product Management, and Development teams to understand features and technical implementations, design social and promotional materials, and perform user feedback tests. We want you to be outcome-oriented and promote design thinking. Always keep the end-user in mind.

What You’ll be working On

First and foremost you will contribute to our website and suite of SaaS tools. You will aslo help our commercial team with their presentations and our marketing team with visual material for social media and customer relations. Then you will support our head of product designing next level EV driver apps.

What We’re Looking For

  • Talented, backed-up with an outspoken portfolio.
  • Knowledge of the web, usability, and interfaces.
  • You like humans, or are at least genuinely intrigued by them.
  • You can talk about big ideas and crazy concepts but also nerd out on interaction design and edge cases.
  • You’re interested in deep system thinking and getting into the gnarliest interaction detail.
  • You have expertise in digital design due to history and happenstance, but you don’t want to be siloed into one part of the design process — you’re also open to brand, marketing, and anything else that comes your way.
  • You’re a designer at heart.
  • Experience with end-to-end, usability and exploratory testing of smartphone and web applications.
  • Experience with Sketch, Figma, and Zeplin. Github experience is a plus.
  • You may or may not have experience with motion design and 3D — that would be a big, juicy plus.
  • Experience in Agile environments.
  • Willingness to travel.

What We don’t care for

  • Yes-man/woman
  • Narrow mindedness
  • Generalists
  • Education or pedigree (your work reflects who you are, we don’t care what school you went to)
