About Octopus Electroverse

We’re making electric vehicle ownership as smart and as simple as possible, by building the giant, virtual charging platform of the future.

In just over 3 years, Octopus Electroverse has grown to become one of the largest eMobility players in Europe, with over 750,000 connected electric vehicle chargers and a customer ecosystem spanning web, iOS, Android, CarPlay, Android Auto & Automotive OS, and more.

But it’s just the start: we’re busy expanding internationally, working with more automotive and tech partners, building exciting new features at scale, and creating the integrated charging experiences of the future - all in the name of making public EV charging super simple for customers.

Electroverse is a multifunctional team made up of product, development, commercial, operations, marketing, partnerships and more - all focused together on making Octopus the go-to name in EV charging. And we’re looking for smart individuals with an interest in the space who can help us make it happen.

We're looking for a Data Analyst to join the Data Team within Electroverse.

This role offers a chance to contribute to the data solutions that will drive the electrification of transport. The role involves working with diverse datasets, from charge point locations and usage to marketing campaigns, sales, and operations data.

The ideal person will be passionate about leveraging data to provide insights and improve efficiency across various teams. You’ll need to be great at listening, understanding challenges and formulating pragmatic solutions.

This is a fantastic opportunity to help build out a small but growing team within the business; create processes and automation pipelines and help shape the framework for how the business will handle data going forward.

We would prefer someone who can work in our London office 1/2 times a week and you will also need to have full working rights for the UK as we are unable to sponsor.

If this sounds like you then we'd love to hear from you.

Are you ready for a career with us? We want to ensure you have all the tools and environment you need to unleash your potential. Need any specific accommodations? Whether you require specific accommodations or have a unique preference, let us know, and we'll do what we can to customise your interview process for comfort and maximum magic!

Studies have shown that some groups of people, like women, are less likely to apply to a role unless they meet 100% of the job requirements. Whoever you are, if you like one of our jobs, we encourage you to apply as you might just be the candidate we hire. Across Octopus, we're looking for genuinely decent people who are honest and empathetic. Our people are our strongest asset and the unique skills and perspectives people bring to the team are the driving force of our success. As an equal opportunity employer, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected attribute. Our commitment is to provide equal opportunities, an inclusive work environment, and fairness for everyone.
