Quality Assurance (QA) Associate
Who we are
At Vvolt we create micro-mobility solutions that empower more people to leave their car behind. We’ve launched with a range of simple ebikes that look sharp and are easy to maintain. Going forward, we’re excited about increasing our offerings to make e-mobility more accessible for more people with a wide range of needs - ebikes aren’t the answer for everyone! Some of us are experienced bike riders and daily commuters and some are excited to help design the perfect e-vehicle for themselves.
Who we are looking for
Vvolt is seeking an enthusiastic and detail-oriented individual to join our team as a Quality Assurance Associate. Your primary responsibility will be checking ebikes before shipment to ensure safe delivery to customers. Experience working on ebikes or bicycles is not required. If you are the type or person who is curious about how to solve problems, you’ll fit in well with our team. One of our guiding principles is to be hungry for feedback - we strive to foster an environment where criticism is encouraged from everyone in the organization. We hope to bring in new folks who challenge and push the organization and respond well to feedback. If that describes you and you’re excited about micro-mobility, you should apply! We’re excited to train an applicant who adds to the culture we’re creating.
Our QA team is integral to helping Vvolt deliver a different online ebike purchase experience. Your careful attention to detail and accurate implementation of processes will ensure that our bikes are incredibly easy for the customer to assemble and be ready to ride out of the box! As a team member who sees and works on many of the bikes that we sell, we want your curiosity and critical eye to highlight improvements and updates to products. While we don’t expect any experience working on bikes, enthusiasm for micro-mobility and ebikes is a must!
