An Insider's view of Volta Charging

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Work-life balance is a combo of the mission, people you work with, clearly set expectations, and a culture of performance. It’s about not just liking what I’m doing, but the great team I’m doing it with and a focus on results (not facetime). I came for the mission, stayed for the people, and am a happy Dad all at the same time - that’s balance.

Jon

Executive Vice President, Market Development

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I collaborate with other teams by creating and fostering an inclusive environment that strengthens bonds with my peers. I collaborate with peers from other teams as I want them to have a voice in the process. Collaboration across disciplines helps streamline processes & knowledge sharing using ubiquitous language and whiteboarding to problem solve.

Senior Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

After becoming a Voltan, I have learned that all it takes to grow is to ask for opportunities. I was interested in learning more about the hardware side of our operations & leadership quickly approved my request to move into the hardware testing team to share my knowledge not just within the hardware team or QA organization but across teams.

Harsh

Senior Quality Assurance Engineer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

My team uses data science and analysis to drive the most effective build-out of our charging network. We are forging new ground for an EV industry that is still in the very early stages of adoption. Our ideas directly influence Volta’s future as well as the behavior of all future EV drivers.

Karen

Senior Vice President, Network Planning

What are some social events your company does?

I have had the privilege of leading Volta's virtual & in-person engagement team which has brought me so much joy! We host a myriad of events that range from cooking class, mixology classes, Furry Friends Hour Hour, Game Night, Movie Night & Corporate Health Challenge. I have loved getting to know colleagues near & far in an impactful and FUN way!
