Your mission

Each industry owes something to our planet - for ours this means executing the transition towards fully electrified mobility. For some reason, many still believe that the switch will happen by just swapping the gas tank for a battery. But it won’t.
At Elli, we like working with engineers who put their heads together to solve complex issues. For Engineering Ellians, this means knowledge-sharing at all levels: from pairing sessions and code reviews to lightning talks and company-wide sprint reviews. You’ll be joining a progressive organization that cares about empowering individuals and their careers - you will challenge us, we will challenge you and together we will shape the future of electromobility.

Elli’s goal is to build the leading platform for all charging related services in Europe. Right now we provide our customers with access to a rapidly growing network of more than 175k public charging stations all over Europe. In the upcoming years we want to become one of the leading providers for eco-friendly smart-home products and disrupt the energy market by leveraging the possibilities of electromobility.
At Elli Engineering we do believe in “you build it, you run it” philosophy and truly live DevOps! We are fully cloud native and have been continuously adapting modern software delivery practices. We aim to build secure and reliable systems without impacting time-to-market. Our information security is measured against ISO/IEC 27001:2013 controls and the reliability of our services is measured against strict SLAs with external stakeholders.

We’re looking for engineers to join us at multiple levels. We will have an open discussion throughout the interview process about assessing which level you fall within at Elli.
