Overview

Spark Horizon is a green-tech, IoT & ad-tech startup with large ambitions and a very

impactful mission. We are building the first free electric charging network across Europe.

Our stations are sponsored by sustainably engaged brands and installed at high traffic

retail locations.

Our innovative business model allows to break the chicken and egg problem between

electric vehicles and charging stations. Our charging network uses powerful and highly

engaging digital advertisings to offer communities the best free electricity service.

 

Launched in November 2016, Spark Horizon is partnering with Schneider Electric and one

of the most renowned IoT hardware manufacturers for the product development. We are

securing pilot installations with the largest commercial real estates as well as several

European metropoles. Our first prototype delivery and installation is scheduled for June in

Zurich, CH. Others will then follow in France and the UK.

We will be closing a seed round by end of June and salary can be offered as early as

August. Large European VCs and renowned business angels have tremendous interest

for our business. We have already been pre-selected by the most prominent accelerators

in Europe.

 

Our goal is to become the first free private charging network in Europe and pave the

ground for the most rapid uptake in electric vehicles. To achieve this, we are looking for a

brilliant and passionate head of software solutions to join our ambitious and international team of five and work for a largely impactful project.

·         Lead the design and development of the software solution (backend EV charging stations and advertising software, ad-server & audience analytics)

·         Manage the budget and maintain the cost overview of the software development team

·         Collaborate to shape the vision of the company and recruit the team

·         Team-spirit & entrepreneurial spirit

 

What we offer:

·         Competitive package: You will be offered a substantial equity stake as a partner and a competitive salary as soon as the seed round is closed

·         Engaging Environment: You will feel the thrill of building business with incredible potentials and leave a strong legacy behind your achievements

·         Meaningful work: You’ll be at the heart of the electro-mobility revolution by building the ground of a global energy transition, affecting billions in your endeavors
