Job description

Role overview

The Senior AI Engineer will play a crucial role in advancing ChargeLab's AI-driven technologies and innovations, collaborating directly with the CTO and the Chief Architect. This position focuses on identifying and tackling valuable and complex problems across engineering, product development, operations, and customer support through the application of AI.

We prioritize meaningful AI applications over trend-following, requiring a candidate who is interested in genuine problem-solving rather than just riding the GenAI wave. You will contribute to the expansion and enhancement of our pioneering AI projects, such as our industry-first OCPP-to-human language bot and anomaly detection for EV chargers.

Company details

ChargeLab is the Android of EV charging. We don’t build hardware. Instead, we partner with leading manufacturers like Eaton, ABB, and Siemens to bundle their EV chargers with ChargeLab’s software. Our end customers include building owners, convenience stores, utilities, and fleets. They leverage our charging station management system (CSMS) and open APIs to manage thousands of EV chargers more efficiently.

By 2030, most new vehicles sold in North America will be EVs. ChargeLab has raised US $30 million to build the world’s best software for managing large networks of EV chargers. We currently have 65 full-time employees, including over 40 team members in engineering and product.

Hybrid work

ChargeLab has a beautiful office in Etobicoke with ample parking, subway access, free snacks/coffee, quiet meeting rooms, and company-provided lunch every Thursday. Our office also gives you direct face-to-face access to our VP of Engineering, CTO, and CEO.

Otherwise, engineering team members are welcome to work from home for their daily deep work. We provide a stipend to purchase work-from-home equipment.

Twice a year, we host a 3-day onsite called ChargeFest. All remote team members fly to Toronto for this event. In-person attendance of ChargeFest is mandatory.
