About Carla

We believe that more people should be able to drive electrically. Therefore, we have set out to build the safest, most convenient, and most transparent way to find, get, and ultimately have, an electric car. Carla was founded in 2020, with strong VC backing and is now in an exciting growth phase to establish Carla as the market-leading “EV-companion” in Europe. What drives us is constantly improving things, primarily by accelerating the transition to electric mobility, and creating exceptional customer experiences in an industry ripe for disruption.

What is in it for you?

Most of all, this is a fantastic opportunity to work for a category-defining company, with great values, and a business model that doesn't talk about sustainability - but rather is based on it. Apart from that, we offer:

  • A career-defining role at an early-stage startup and an opportunity to grow and learn from knowledgeable co-workers
  • We’re a startup, which means we work smarter not harder. Life-work balance still plays an important role in creating long-lasting productivity and output
  • A workplace that believes strength is found in diversity. We hire people regardless of background, education, experience or gender
  • Market competitive salary and stock option program

We’re fast, both in terms of car delivery and when it comes to growing our business. We have no plans to stop anytime soon; hopefully, this is where you come in!

    We look forward to reviewing your application!
