Careers

Working at Chargefox

We're a young company with big goals.

In 2018 we set out on a mission to create a cleaner future for all Australians by reducing road transport emissions. Today, we’re the largest EV charging network in the country, and every month use of our network reduces carbon emissions by 50 tonnes. The Chargefox App has been downloaded by over 10,000 EV drivers, and we’ve developed partnerships with most major EV manufacturers to offer discounted or free charging to EV owners. We’re breaking down barriers to EV adoption, and have plenty more products and features to roll out in the future.

So, if you’re looking for a chance to join a growing and dynamic start-up then take a look at our current opportunities below.
