The Company – Milence
Established in July 2022, we are dedicated to making the future of road transport fossil-free. By building and managing reliable and secure high-performance charging solutions, our mission is to support and accelerate the transition to zero-emission heavy-duty vehicles in Europe. The team is working quickly to scale up operations and network deployment.
As a fast-growing company, we want to build diverse teams who are dedicated to our vision: a world of fossil-free transport, which will go on to combat climate change.
With a focus on sustainable growth and the best possible collaboration among all stakeholders, we are looking for colleagues eager to make an impact and ready to support and accelerate the zero-emission future of road transport in Europe.
While our Dutch offices are in Amsterdam and Arnhem, our focus is distinctly pan-European and we will be expanding to several other European countries in early 2023.
The CTO Department
The CTO department is responsible for all technical solutions, from the grid connection down to the site facilities, including auxiliary systems. This also include development of (future) topics in the area of driver services, safety and security. This is why this department needs different experts to cover different subjects.
We are at the beginning of building a Pan-European network for electric long-haul trucking. Nothing has been set yet, all is to be discovered and build. Both the trucks and the charging solutions are still in development. However, we do know that charging the electric trucks require a reliable, efficient and effective charging system, and this is key to be successful.
The CTO department works closely with the other departments within Milence to ensure we have and develop the right solutions for our portfolio. We will also be working in close alignment with different external parties to steer the market where needed and develop the best charging solutions for our network.
For our CTO department, we are looking for an MEP (Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing) engineer who will make a significant contribution to Milence's success. Since we're building customer-centric charging locations with rest and recharging facilities, we need more than just a charger. This means that in addition to the charging and energy infrastructure, the Milence locations will also require different types of facilities such as restrooms, showers, coffee corners and, potentially, a restaurant. Next to that, the site requires a high level of safety, such as cameras and electric entrance gates, as well as conveniences such as Wi-Fi, for which you will also be responsible. All these aspects need to be designed, engineered and constructed as modular solutions for all Milence locations in Europe. You will be our expert on the installation & construction-related aspects of the engineering team.
You will provide technical guidance to colleagues and support the successful deployment of the Milence sites, as well as monitor and improve the site-level performance. Always keeping an eye out for market trends and developments to keep Milence as a technological leader.
As an MEP Engineer, you will be;
- A knowledgeable expert for our site installations and buildings
- Contribute to the development of the modular site solutions
- Work with 3rd parties and select and validate to right solutions for our locations
- Improve and monitor the solutions constantly
- Will constantly align with the Customer Journey & Marketing teams to ensure the facilities fit-out proposition and are well received by drivers
- Will constantly align with the local teams to ensure the correct site delivery and compliance with applicable legislation
The job will be based in our Amsterdam and/or Arnhem office. However, Arnhem will be the main base for our CTO department.
