Supply Chain | Up to £55K p.a. | Remote (with some ad hoc travel to manufacturing sites)

At Pod Point we’re changing the way people drive.  We fundamentally believe that travel shouldn’t damage the Earth so we’ve made it our mission to install a Pod Point (an Electric Vehicle charging point) everywhere you park. To make that vision a reality, we need the brightest, most tenacious and most inspiring talent in the world - we are growing faster than the market and we need to maintain that velocity - that’s where you come in!

The Role

We’re looking for an experienced and process oriented Senior Manufacturing Quality Engineer to jump on board and help us achieve our ambitious growth goals. The position will report into the Manufacturing and Supply Chain Director and will be based remotely, however you will be required to attend ad hoc visits to our manufacturing partners.

What you’ll do

  • Lead and deliver on manufacturing audits including putting quality program standards in place. 
  • Setting manufacturing quality metrics & KPIs, with a strong understanding of CAPA/8D.
  • Designing and implementing quality processes across production including setting the standards for documentation. 
  • Leading on Pod Points efforts towards ISO9001 accreditation. 
  • Working with design and reliability engineers to improve and maintain quality standards. 
  • Managing the field return function, as well as working with the engineers to set the appropriate fail rates for the product in question.
  • Very good understanding of manufacturing processes in general to support the business.

What you’ll need

  • Previous experience leading on manufacturing audits and putting quality programs standards in place. 
  • Experience working with outsourced production lines.
  • Previous experience working on ISO 9001 accreditation.
  • Experience with metalworks and plastics.
  • Ability to work autonomously. 
  • Engineering degree.

Bonus Points

  • Exposure to electrical and mechanical engineering.
  • Experience managing a team. 
  • You have a dog (which you’d be welcome to bring into the office, as and when you choose to go in).
  • You’re passionate and knowledgeable about climate change, sustainability and/or the EV industry.

And if you’re not sure whether you’re what we’re looking for - send us your CV anyway!  We love to hear from people who are passionate about what we do, and we always take the view that a good cultural fit (and mission alignment) is much more important than ticking all the “qualifications, skills and experience” boxes.

Our culture is electric

At Pod Point we like to think we are anything but conventional. We have worked hard to create a rapidly-growing, constantly innovating, flat-structured world, where each employee can see the vital contribution they are making to the company. We knew from the very beginning that a rigid, corporate environment was never going to work for us, and we have stayed true to our word - we’re anything but.

We work hard; we’re not clock-watchers but equally you may find yourself working into the evening very occasionally. In return we’ll pay you well, give you complete ownership to shape the role, give you ground-breaking projects to work on and surround you with fantastic, talented people. We also provide the following benefits:

  • Salary Sacrifice Electric Vehicle Scheme.
  • Flexible working hours and a casual dress code.
  • Remote first working approach.
  • 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays).
  • Very generous maternity and paternity leave scheme.
  • Pension scheme.
  • Eyecare scheme.

The socially distant elephant in the room

Our first priority (at all times, but especially during the COVID-19 pandemic) is to make sure we’re not unnecessarily exposing Pod Pointers to potential health risks. We’re a “Remote first” company anyway, so we’re continuing to conduct all interviews on Google Meet and are pretty good at onboarding new starters remotely (if we do say so ourselves). As soon as we feel it’s safe, we do intend to reopen our London office; and once that happens you will be welcome to use that for work if you prefer - although there will be no requirement for you to do so.

Final things to note

Pod Point is an equal opportunities employer, although you must be legally able to work in the UK, and any data you provide us will be stored and disseminated in accordance with Pod Point’s Privacy Policy.

We like to deal directly with our candidates so no agencies please!
