We measure our success using traditional customer satisfaction metrics (such as time to resolve issues, NPS and so on), but also in the feedback we receive from our customers:
“Your customer support is the best I have ever seen & in my work I’ve dealt with customer support every day for the last 20 years.”“Really nice to be dealing with a firm that works with its users.”“Giving a five-star review for the customer support.”

- Improve our key support metrics, especially time to resolve issues and number of issues per 1000 activated users
- Launch in five new markets worldwide, including non-English speaking markets and non-EU timezones
- Have experience in a customer-facing role
- Be able to translate what people are saying and what they really mean
- Communicate clearly to multiple audiences, via e-mail and on the phone
- Be able to manage your workload proactively and consistently hit deadlines
- Be a team player, supporting your colleagues when you have the capacity

An awesome applicant will have:
- A track record of improving customer satisfaction in multiple environments
- The ability to empathise deeply with our customers and explain their needs to the rest of the team
- Excellent communication skills, communicating well to all audiences and fine-tuning their tone of voice, vocabulary and medium to suit the occasion
- A well planned and managed personal workload, supporting your peers, finding opportunities to optimise, and managing upwards when more capacity is needed
- EV knowledge and insights into the latest trends in the industry, such as when the next car is coming out, or who the best energy supplier is for EV drivers
We will support you with:
- Flexible working primarily remotely, investing in your home working setup or an office in a location convenient for you
- Funded access to conferences, training and meetups (like Fully Charged Live)
- All the hardware and software you need to work effectively
