London, England, United Kingdom · Finance

Description

// Who are we?

Evezy is an electric vehicle subscription service, the first in the UK to offer the ability to swap the vehicle you are driving on-demand using our app. Access is replacing ownership and unlike traditional car-share solutions, Evezy customers have access to an electric vehicle 100% of the time. One flat fee covers all vehicle-related costs including electricity, with a rolling monthly subscription meaning customers have more flexibility than owning a vehicle. By managing the entire user experience, right from our own keyless entry software to having our own dedicated fleet and charge points also means Evezy offers a unique, all-inclusive vehicle service.

Founded in 2016, our exciting start-up comprises of a diverse team who strive for transparency and excellence in everything we do. Having already had two rounds of investment, EVezy is well positioned to quickly expand in this new sector. If you're interested in shaping an expanding business at the cutting edge of the exploding mobility market and you're eager to make a difference, we’d love to hear from you.


// What are we doing?

The shared mobility market is already worth over £20 billion and forecast to be the highest growth market within the automotive over the next decade. Through two brands, Evezy for retail customers and rentE for private hire taxi drivers, we have built a car sharing platform that is making the future of mobility a reality now, with ambitious plans to grow into an international brand.

You’ll potentially get involved in raising funds as well. The role will need the lean and agile approach of working in a fast-growing scaleup, but also the professionalism required to work with the CEO to deliver results to the board, oversee audits and cover other such requirements of a venture-backed business. Previous experience in a venture-backed business similar to ours would be beneficial.
