Job description

Join a fast growing company that matters to the future! At Fastned you can work on tangible sustainable infrastructure to accelerate the transition to electric mobility. Our goal is a European network of 1,000 fast charging stations on prime locations where electric drivers can charge their vehicles with energy from the sun and wind.

As a Freelance Senior Architect, you contribute to the success of the company with your creative and spatial thinking, providing station designs that score the highest in customer experience and that integrate our modular Fastned station in the service areas along the highways. In the coming year, you will be strongly focused on the permitting and contracting of new locations.

You will be mainly responsible for the station design of new sites, from permitting with regional and local authorities to execution detailing. You will be part of the construction visits and see your beautiful projects being built! Additionally, you can also contribute to the design and development of new Fastned shops and other potential services next to the charging station.

Your role as Senior Architect is crucial to our multidisciplinary team. In your day to day job, you will spend most of your time with our local Belgian team, consisting of other architects, public affair managers, network developers and construction managers. Besides that, you will also be connected to our architects in the Netherlands, Germany, United Kingdom, Switzerland and France. Become part of a young, innovative and growing company in the field of e-mobility! We move fast - and deliver WOW!
