Volta Trucks, a hypergrowth European Electric Truck Manufacturer, is looking for a PDM Lead to join our team. This is a hybrid role split between our site in Reading (1 day per week), and remote working. You will join a team that authors and protects the data that the various parts of the business use to communicate.

The team sits in the middle of the business delivering to every team, which makes it a fantastic place to see how all teams and people operate. You will get to meet and work with lots of people and resolve some very complex requirements.

We would like you to have:

  • The ability to manage large data sets, particularly in excel – pivots, complex formulas, quickly putting together the logic to respond to a new query
  • Clear and concise documentation skills. All data must be auditable, and so it’s important to be diligent with recording what has been done and why
  • The ability to describe complex concepts or processes simply – experience in tutoring science or training processes would demonstrate this
  • Great communications skills and a proficiency in the language of engineering, particularly with Chassis
  • Automotive Industry experience and some experience in a product development environment would be beneficial for understanding the relationships between departments and who needs what from who

Our culture and Valued Behaviors:

  • Be adaptable, resilient, and open to change- comfortably uncomfortable

About us

Urban delivery is currently one of the most polluting activities in our cities. Traditional diesel trucks continue to pollute the air, and cause health and safety challenges to residents, while bringing necessary goods into city centres, because there hasn’t been an alternative. Until now.

Volta Trucks has developed the first ground-up full-electric commercial vehicle, paired with an innovative and highly disruptive business model. Founded in 2019, and having raised €300M of funding to date, we are bringing the full-electric Volta Zero to market at industry-leading pace and scale to help accelerate the transition to a sustainable future
