Job Description

About UsEV 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 SummaryAs an Associate, Finance you will analyze projects to evaluate their economics, capital structure, and viability as part of EV Realty’s growth and funding.  Working collaboratively with our Business Development and Project Development teams, you will build project and pricing models incorporating cost estimates, various incentives, and customer opportunities with contract/revenue options.  Your efforts will be critical to pricing and negotiating new customer contracts.  You will also support capital raising to enable EV Realty’s business, including project finance, property financing, corporate debt and equity, and joint ventures.
