We seek candidates who are focused, organized, enthusiastic about electric transportation, and comfortable working with diverse consumers and organizational partners.

Starting wage will be $15-17 per hour. A minimum of 20 hours per week is guaranteed, which may increase based on seasonality, available funding, candidate interest, and staffing needs. Benefits at full time include fully employer paid health insurance, a 3% employer contribution to a 401K plan, 4 weeks of paid vacation, sick and personal days, and a friendly and supportive office environment. Benefits are pro-rated for part time employees. We also provide access to an electric vehicle for business use.
