About Suncrafter GmbH:

SunCrafter is a Berlin based clean-tech start up, founded in 2019 which creates innovative, stand-alone solar systems. Our goal is to power the mobility transition with a public charging infrastructure for light electric vehicles, such as eScooters and eBikes.

By integrating 2nd-life components, we make solar power even more sustainable, inclusive and economic. We are working simultaneously on business development and on several research-based as well as practical projects in Germany and beyond. To power the world without consuming the earth, we need you!

Your responsibilities:

To unlock the potential of micromobility with solar powered infrastructure, we create fantastic products which many people want to see in public and private space. Our products need to evolve with the markets’ demand, be highly functional and reliable when it comes to docking and charging various types of light electric vehicles, satisfy the needs of different customer groups and be at the same time recognizable as a typical “SunCrafter” product. We have gotten quite somewhere but want to improve our existing products even further. We also want to create new products which respond to customer requests and allow us to create value at scale.

At a young company like ours you will cover a broad range of jobs and responsibilities, which makes the job truly never boring.

  • You want to bring your talents in this field and grow professionally into it
  • You are fluent in English, German is a bonus (Company language is “denglish” as we are a international team)
  • Other design skills such as graphic design, brand design, UX design etc are a bonus

What we offer:

  • Together we build new infrastructure for new mobility solutions and more livable cities. You can become a part of this exciting ride.
