At Volta, we’re on a mission to accelerate the adoption of the electric vehicle. Volta's award-winning charging stations benefit brands, consumers, and real-estate locations by providing valuable advertising space to businesses and convenient charging to drivers. Strategically located in places consumers already visit, Volta's chargers are currently the most used electric vehicle charging stations in the United States.
The Stations Team:
Volta’s EV charging stations are used in a variety of locales and markets, which in turn drives a variety of requirements for charging systems. The station software team integrates OEM and custom charging solutions into Volta’s stations using industry-standard protocols such as OCPP and vendor-proprietary protocols where needed. This role focuses on the successful integration of new charging systems into the software/hardware ecosystem, taking a new system from product requirements through to successful QA testing and fielded deployment.
