We are recruiting!

Are you an engineer, a driven student or just an entrepreneurial person yearning to make a difference within environment and social sustainability in a progressive start-up? Join us and develop the East African electric transport sector!

You need to work in parallel with development and production of new vehicles, as well as reuse and retrofitting of existing vehicles to electric. Retrofitting largely reduces the resource-need and opens the possibility of making any vehicle electric. Recently we have ventured into the PV industry, providing the latest battery technology from Europe/Asia and offering integrated and smart installations for a range of different customers.

At Opibus we make electric vehicle and renewable technology accessible in areas of the world lacking the right prerequisites, infrastructure and investment capital.

 

Your role and how to apply

You will work project-based, with good opportunities for development within the company; travels to East Africa; partaking in share/option program. Now we are up and running in Nairobi, Kenya for the upcoming future but we are always looking for expansion in East Africa and other parts of the world. There are positions to be filled in both Kenya and elsewhere, and you are more than welcome to join us for shorter periods as well.

Send an email to hr@opibus.se why you should be a part of our team. Don’t forget to attach your CV!
