Job Description

About Spin

Spin is a fast-growing micromobility company committed to a world with clean air, liveable cities, safe streets, and widespread access to convenient, affordable transportation. If you’re searching for a top-tier career where you can make a difference and dynamically collaborate within a creative, lively environment—Spin welcomes you!

We’re passionate about transportation and technology. The work we accomplish fulfills a sense of meaning and purpose, which goes beyond the traditional dimensions of a workplace. Our products and initiatives directly influence people’s lives, which is proven by our customers' feedback.

Founded in 2017, and now a subsidiary of Ford Motor Company, we have worked together with cities, campuses, community groups, and businesses to expand internationally. Even as we expand, we maintain the close feeling of a small business, with “fireside chats” chats led by our company’s founders, weekly OKR pop-up videos, music-infused presentations at our All Hands meetings, and more. During this time of working remotely, our creativity and shared goals have kept us united and bonded within our virtual community.

We are a diverse team of artists, engineers, designers, urban planners, policymakers, marketers, and operators. We believe in inclusivity and build powerful alliances to fulfill our goals and move our mission forward. Above all, we at Spin are connected by our values and #BeOrange spirit, which represents unity, purpose, passion, and creativity.

About the Role

The Sr. Technical Project Manager is responsible for leading Spin’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure, primarily Spin Hubs, our micro mobility parking / charging infrastructure. Spin Hubs are a critical part of Spin’s business as they create clutter free parking of our scooters, provide a mechanism for advertising important transit connection options, and create an efficient mechanism for charging our scooters, thereby lowering Spin’s carbon footprint. The Sr. TPM will lead a team of project coordinators and external vendors to complete Spin Hub installations on time and within budget. In addition, this person will be responsible for developing the next generation Spin Hubs charging product.

As we scale up our electric vehicle fleet for deployment and collection of our scooters, this person will also be responsible for developing the strategic roadmap for the charging infrastructure of those electric vehicles. At Spin, we believe that micromobility is a powerful, transparent, and accountable ally in the fight against climate change. This person will serve a critical role in transitioning our deployment and collection fleet to electric vehicles, thereby significantly reducing our carbon footprint.

Strategically, the Sr. TPM will be critical in implementing new processes to help scale operations, supply chain, logistics and installation of Spin Hubs and other electric vehicle infrastructure needs.
