(Senior) Architect France

France, Île-de-France, ParisLocation Design

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 (Senior) Architect, you contribute to the success of the company with your creative and spatial thinking, providing station designs that excel in customer experience and that integrate our modular Fastned station in the service areas along the highways. In the coming year, Fastned will commission several new stations in France. With our fully branded stations we are changing the perception of electric mobility and contribute to sustainable transportation. 

Initially, you will be mainly focused on the building permit applications for new sites. After that, you will shift towards the execution phase, creating the plans to tender out the construction works and helping our construction manager in the supervision of the plans. Eventually, you will also work out complete new designs and tender submissions for the acquisition of new locations. Additionally, you could also contribute to the design and development of new shops and other potential services next to the charging station on a European level.

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 French team, consisting of other architects, network developers and construction managers, public affairs and legal. Besides that, you will also be connected to our architects in Germany, Belgium, United Kingdom, Switzerland and the Netherlands. Our super nice office is located in the 12th arrondissement, Bastille, in Paris. Become part of a young, innovative and growing company in the field of e-mobility! We move fast - and deliver WOW!

Job requirements

We are searching for a (senior) architect willing to take responsibility from initial designs to the permitting phase of our locations in France. You are familiar with the importance of branding and visual identity, and you can apply traffic safety regulations in your design proposals. You are a real team player and you have the ability to think on your own feet - you feel comfortable taking initiative and working independently. You are not afraid to make mistakes and you are always keen to keep on learning. “Think like a founder” is something you identify easily with. Additionally, you tick the following boxes:

  • 1 year of experience if you are a junior: 5+ years of experience for a senior role;
  • You are an AutoCAD and Revit expert;
  • Bonus points if you are registered;
  • You feel comfortable discussing projects with authorities;
  • Additional value if you can make great visuals;
  • You speak (near-)native French and English on a business level;
  • You are highly motivated by accelerating the energy transition & joining a fun company that is making a difference.

Join us in building a better future

Working at Fastned means working with people who are motivated to accelerate the transition to sustainable mobility. Together with currently 100 colleagues we have the ambition to build Europe's best fast charging network. We currently operate in six countries (HQ in the Netherlands, offices in Germany, UK, Switzerland, Belgium and France) and we are growing fast.

We work hard to change the world, but we don't forget to celebrate our successes, big and small. We provide daily vegetarian lunches at our offices, throw notorious Christmas parties, organize an amazing yearly trip abroad and we’ll give you access to our fully electric vehicle fleet (all charging expenses covered).
