At r3charge we want to take out the pain of traveling with an electric vehicle and transform it into a seamless and enjoyable experience. In the first step, we just launched the first ever hotel booking platform dedicated to electric vehicle travelers, helping people find their destination in a breeze.

Have you ever thought of not having WiFi in your hotel room? Not since 2005. 

Soon, we want to support installing charging points at all destinations and make charging an EV easier than reaching to the minibar. That is our second step.

Our MVP is out and we are now building a team of full time professionals to launch at scale.

To achieve that, we need someone to make sure our apps and web platforms are fast, secure and reliable, our Chief Technology Officer.

What is the opportunity?

What will I be doing?

You will work directly with the Co-Founder/CEO and take responsibility for selecting a technology stack, designing the application architecture, setting up a scalable cloud-based infrastructure and testing the application. You will be able to roll up your sleeves to get started and will soon have the resources to build a team, internally and externally, to help you execute on the strategy you develop.

  • Previous work experience as a Chief Technology Officer or another similar leadership role, ideally for a large eCommerce organization
