Job Description

At Volta we’re on a mission to accelerate the adoption of the electric vehicle.

You will work directly with our design leadership team to translate high level concepts and raw data into engaging interfaces for some of our most important products. These include reporting tools that support our site partners like Whole foods and Walgreens, our network planning tool that predicts electric vehicle charging demand, and a data platform that monitors our charging stations in real time.
