Product specialist – eMobility electrical engineer substations


Job description

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 our team is growing throughout the continent.

The Department

The CTO department plays a pivotal role in orchestrating the technical facets of our hardware value chain. Our purview spans a wide spectrum, encompassing everything from cutting-edge charging and energy storage technologies to robust entry-gate and security solutions. This comprehensive scope also extends to critical domains such as cyber security, digital services, and energy-related services. To meet the demands of this diverse landscape, our department thrives on a rich tapestry of expertise, spanning a multitude of subjects.

Our journey is at its inception as we embark on the formidable task of establishing a Pan-European charging network tailored to battery-electric long-haul trucks. The canvas is yet to be painted; every stroke is a discovery, and every element is in the process of being built. The challenge lies in the fact that both the electric trucks and the charging solutions are evolving. What we do know, unequivocally, is that these electric trucks will be voracious energy consumers, and the reliability of archetype design, energy distribution, remote controlling and our chargers will be instrumental. Equally important is our commitment to ensuring compatibility across all truck makes and platforms. Thus, forging close partnerships with our suppliers and truck OEMs becomes paramount in this new frontier.

Within our team, we foster close collaboration with other divisions within Milence to ensure that our portfolio boasts precisely the right solutions. Furthermore, our engagement extends outward, as we align ourselves with market players to exert influence where necessary and to craft the most exemplary solutions for our expansive network.
