Working on the Strategic Product team, you will be thinking about how to improve the product for all users, both the drivers using mobile app but also our energy partners and internal users. You might be working on stability problems to help us serve a growing customer base, or you may be implementing new product features such as matching end-users charging to renewable generation. The role will be varied and driven by a customer-focused product development process.

The frontend used by our end-customers is a React-Native mobile app targeting iOS and Android. This app can be built to serve all of our white-labelling customers and supports multiple languages and regions. On the web side, we use React JS to build interfaces for our clients which can be used to manage their customers. You should be experienced working with JavaScript (with typing in flow or typescript) and be familiar with the React ecosystem and have detailed experience developing either React JS web application or React Native mobile application. Experience with native mobile code is desired but not essential. You should also be a customer-focus engineer who cares about the quality of the user experience and be driven to make our app as easy to use as possible.

As an Engineer you should be able to work with your teammates across engineering and other disciplines to plan and implement the technical side of features. You should be driven to keep learning and developing your skills and have a strong understanding of where you need to develop your skills.

We partner with energy companies such as Igloo Energy, Rolec Services and ESB to deliver tariffs and products which integrate smartly with electric vehicles and their chargers.

  • Make our app work for users across different geographies, with various vehicles, charger manufacturers, and energy suppliers

  • Improve our data and analytics offering for our Utility partners so they can better understand how smart charging stabilises their grids and reduces their costs
