Our culture and Valued Behaviours
We are a scale-up, so structures and processes can be new and constantly evolving.
We are a diverse business, from many nationalities and backgrounds.
We really value our people. We have a flexible & remote work environment and a great benefits package & pension scheme.
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.
