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, 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 the initial sketch, site investigation, permitting with regional and local authorities. You will also focus on the upgrade of our initial projects, making sure that all our stations fit our most recent design requirements. Additionally, you will also contribute to the design and development of new shops and other potential services next to the charging station. You will be part of the construction visits and see your beautiful projects being built!
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 Dutch team, consisting of other architects, network developers and construction managers. Besides that, you will also be connected to our architects in Germany, Belgium, United Kingdom, Switzerland and France. Our super nice office is located close to the Amstel Station in Amsterdam. Become part of a young, innovative and growing company in the field of e-mobility! We move fast - and deliver WOW!
We are searching for an architect willing to take responsibility from initial designs to the permitting phase of our locations in the Netherlands. 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:
- 5+ years of experience;
- You are an AutoCAD and Revit expert;
- Bonus points for retail experience;
- You feel comfortable discussing projects with authorities;
- Additional value if you can make great visuals;
- You speak (near-)native Dutch and English on a business level;
- You are highly motivated by accelerating the energy transition & join a fun company that is making a difference.
