About the company:

EV Realty accelerates the adoption of commercial EV fleets by focusing on the fundamental constraint all electrified fleets will face: low-cost, reliable and scalable access to grid-scale power.

Today’s electrical grid is complex, dynamic and ever evolving. It is also the source of fuel that will power the world’s shift to electrified transportation, requiring nearly 100 GWh of additional annual electricity demand and $125B of investment in EV chargers, grid infrastructure, transmission lines, renewable energy and storage in the U.S. by 2030.

But securing grid access and capacity to deploy significant additional EV charging load is a challenge, with desired charging locations often requiring lengthy, expensive and under-utilized infrastructure upgrades, if feasible at all.

Unless you know where – and how – to look.

EV Realty combines commercial real estate and project siting acumen with energy markets and grid optimization expertise to identify, design and build out the premier DC Fast Charging infrastructure platform for commercial EV fleets.

About Us
EV Realty develops, deploys and owns grid-scale charging infrastructure critical to electrifying commercial fleets in the U.S.
 
We accelerate the adoption of large EV fleets by focusing on the fundamental constraint all electrified fleets face: low-cost, reliable and expandable access to grid-scale power.  Today’s electrical grid is complex, constrained and rapidly evolving.  It is also the backbone source of fuel that will power the world’s shift to electrified transportation, a use case it was not designed for over a century ago.
 
That’s where EV Realty comes in – we are developing a network of grid-optimized, large-scale EV charging hubs for delivery, logistics, services and vocational fleet customers.  Our depots serve multiple commercial fleets in secure, high-power locations with guaranteed charging access and availability, and are located proximate to major logistics corridors within last-mile delivery/duty range of urban population centers.  By aggregating multiple fleets onto shared private infrastructure in grid-ready locations, our depots reduce upfront and recurring costs for fleets, optimize charging times and provide high utilization rates.
 
Role Summary
The Manager, Real Estate is responsible for origination, diligence, acquisition and administration of site control rights for EV Realty’s electric vehicle charging hub projects. The Manager, Real Estate will be a key member of a team of development, finance and engineering specialists charged with the development and commercialization of the Company’s growing project pipeline in California.  Candidates should have significant prior professional property acquisition experience with ability and expertise to perform fee title due diligence activities, landowner/broker research and outreach, negotiate site control agreements (i.e., leases, easements, options, purchases) and administer site control agreements from execution through to construction and operations.  Familiarity with industrial, infrastructure, data center or distributed energy development from project siting through to construction and operations is strongly preferred.
