Job Description:

At FreeWire we fundamentally change the way businesses and utilities
electrify. We build battery-based energy storage systems that provide
clean and quiet power anywhere it's needed, reducing the cost and
accelerating deployment of electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
FreeWire's solutions are evolving from providing ultrafast EV charging
services to a full suite of energy services to accelerate sustainable
electrification and provide resiliency to customers and a distributed
power source to utilities. FreeWire has secured major strategic
investors from Fortune 100 companies and serves leading corporate,
utility, and retail customers. The feedback on the Boost Charger,
FreeWire's DC fast charger, has been overwhelmingly positive as we
electrify locations that would have been too expensive to power on using
conventional charging solutions. Utilities are releasing RFPs with
requests for battery backed solutions, their regulatory teams are
including our technology as eligible for incentives, and they are
seeking cost effective solutions as they electrify their fleets and
provide utility owned charging solutions for the public. FreeWire
has deployed battery-integrated chargers with Fortune 100 companies,
commercial customers, fleets, retail locations, and gas stations. In
addition to its partnership with bp pulse, FreeWire and ampm, a bp
subsidiary and convenience store chain with over 1,000 locations, have
already deployed multiple public charging stations in the U.S.
FreeWire's regulatory affairs and policy team keeps customers up to date
on federal, state, and utility incentive opportunities, which in some
cases cover up to 80% of the cost of the charging station, and the
company recently announced that the Boost Charger is Buy America
compliant. Learn more at and follow us
