Job description

Project Manager Construction Switzerland ∙ Canton Zug or Zurich ∙ Full Time

Join us in our mission of building a European network of 1000 fast charging stations where all electric cars can charge exclusively with solar and wind energy!

Description of the role
Fastned recently won a tender by the Swiss Federal Roads Office for 20 locations across Switzerland. As Fastned’s Project Manager Construction in Switzerland, you will be responsible to kick off the local office and manage all required steps towards building these locations. Together with our colleagues in Germany and The Netherlands as well as our Swiss partners you will submit building permits, manage grid connections, scout for new suppliers and be the first contact for our construction company. Become a part of our exciting journey and grow with us!

What does the ideal candidate look like?

  • Several years of experience in the Swiss building permit and construction process, preferably within mobility infrastructure
  • Knowledge of the application for mid voltage grid connections or an electrical background is of advantage
  • Practical experiences in managing partners such as architects, contractors, authorities and material suppliers
  • Hands-on mentality and eagerness to break new ground
  • Willingness to travel within Switzerland and to The Netherlands
  • Knowledge of German and English is a must, French or Italian is a plus
  • ‘Think like a Founder’ and ‘Move fast & Deliver WOW’! And we love to hear what this means to you if we meet face to face.


And lastly but just as important, you are a great team player, flexible, take responsibility and initiative, you are not afraid to make mistakes and always want to keep on learning.

What’s in it for you?
You work with great people who are passionate, ambitious and intelligent. Together we want to realise our mission while having fun doing this: “Giving Freedom to the electric driver!” The exact working location is yet to be defined but once a month you will travel to our Head Office in Amsterdam for our monthly meeting with the whole company followed by great food and drinks. Off course we want you to join our yearly famous trip abroad and our legendary Christmas party.
