Electric Era is designing, building, and testing PowerNode, a high power battery-enabled charging station to provide the necessary infrastructure needed for the affordable and timely electrification of transportation. Our high power charging stations and the software platform we build around them will be a critical infrastructure piece of the electrical grid and will complement the deployment of high-performance, low-cost, fast-charging infrastructure around America.

Electric Era’s software team redefines “full-stack” - we write everything from low-level firmware to cloud-hosted backend software to factory test infrastructure to artificial intelligence and simulation tooling. We believe in first-principles engineering with rapid iteration towards success.

You will have the opportunity to join us in this mission, take ownership in part of the open-ended problem of EV charging infrastructure, and execute the creation of end-to-end software that will level up the industry’s understanding of the charging experience. Your contributions will be critical to the long-term success of the company in making EV fast charging ubiquitous and affordable.


  • You will own end-to-end development of components of the PowerNode software stack
  • You will source requirements cross-functionally to produce optimal first principles designs and will present and defend those design decisions
  • You will collaborate with our partners and customers to ensure optimal system-level design for our product line
  • You will be responsible for continued success of your software in real world environments by championing appropriate software reliability practices as necessary
  • You will mentor and educate other engineers to continuously elevate the Electric Era engineering team’s technical acumen
