Our client is seeking to recruit a Technical EV Project Manager who will help manage and facilitate the technical implementation of EV (Electric Vehicle) chargers along with building an ecosystem that connects payments and billing to customers. The role involves managing the third party vendors and the individual will require knowledge of software implementation as well as integration into third-party ERP and BI systems. The individual will need to grasp the multiple technology layers involved and be the driver behind ensuring the end-to-end delivery for the EV platform is successful.

The transition to Electric Vehicles (EV) is a key strategic priority for our client, and they are embarking on significant investment in the area, given its importance for the future of their business.

The candidate will need a balance of technical knowledge as well as management to drive change so that they can adopt a hands-on approach and fit into the business culture seamlessly. The role will report to the EV team but will have a dotted line to the Chief Technology Officer.

  • Minimum of 4-5 years professional software development experience
  • Prior experience with SAP and EV specific technology/software beneficial

The ideal Project Manager does not need to have previous EV (Electric Vehicle) experience but will have a proven track record managing payments integrations and large rollout projects.
