Zaptec powers your next adventure

We combine the latest tech with human-centered design to offer highly intuitive and efficient EV chargers that ensure easier access to personal electric transport.

This gives people the freedom and potential to travel into a more sustainable future. How neat is that?

Within just a few years, we’ve built our domestic market-leading position by supplying superior charging installations for housing co-ops and private homes alike.

As a Norwegian EV pioneer, our goals are aimed at bringing the best charging technology to the rest of the world. Are you up for this challenge?

What your day would look like

Within Hardware Development, you will be a part of the hardware team developing the core of the Zaptec products, ensuring that Zaptec´s hardware solutions are both at the forefront technologically and with safety and quality as a top priority. 

We currently have three hardware products in the market and plan to release several new products that require the hardware team´s attention. 

The daily work will include hardware design on both existing- and unreleased products and close cooperation with other technical departments such as embedded, mechanical, and software. Our products include everything from low-power radios to high-power electronics, thus, there is room for every interest within electronics.

As we design all parts of the products in-house, you will be part of the whole journey from early prototypes exploding in the lab to the final successful tests qualifying the product for mass production. We also have an in-house electronics- and test lab for prototyping and the verification of our products.

Tasks will in general be:

  • Design and simulation of analog- and digital electronics
  • Schematic and layout design in Altium Designer
  • Design for manufacturing and collaborating with the operations department to ensure streamlined production of new products
  • Prototyping and qualification testing of new designs
  • Pre-compliance testing - EMC, Radio, and safety (LVD)
  • Compliance testing at 3rd party laboratories

After a workday, we encourage you to go home and relax. Be with friends and family or do your hobbies. It's healthy.

Is this you?

Some personal skills we value:

  • You are highly interested in new technology

  • You are a team player with a desire to share knowledge both within the hardware team and other technical teams

  • You want to make an impression on the product, the work environment, and the world!

As for the skills required for this job

  • You have experience with the design and development of electronics
  • Whether you are junior or a senior, we have the work and opportunities
  • You are familiar with or want to work with product development
  • Bachelor or Master within relevant fields or working experience equivalent to it
