A bit more about the job

As our Charging Solutions Engineer you know the technical details of charging equipment by heart and are able to advise and challenge on client’s needs. You are able to challenge our charging equipment suppliers on their developments and are able to match Allego’s long term goals with the products that they design and produce. You are the sparring partner for our Delivery & Realization Managers on the delivery of our charging solutions. From time to time, you should be able to explain to our colleagues in the field what to do in case things don’t work.

It is a role which combines charging hardware quality assessment and solution development for our hardware portfolio. The focus is on data connectivity, for example OCPP, and AC/DC charging systems. You will be working within the Charging Solutions and Site Design team within our company, together with the team you solve challenging puzzles.

Overall, you will be responsible for the analysis, implementation, and development of our hardware – and supplier portfolio – focusing on charging technology and data connectivity. This means:

  • Keep track of (key) trends in charger hardware, standardization technologies and data connection in the market.

  • Provide technical consultancy and ‘on demand hardware analyses’ for product development.
  • In-depth technical analysis of charging issues of our operational chargers in our network.
  • Represent our team in relevant technical committees, research and/or organizations.
