  • Perform equipment inspections and calibrations;
  • Carry out repairs to the AppScooters, following all our Repair Guidelines;
  • Control the stock of spare parts, materials and tools;
  • Maintain tools and equipment.


    This is the right role for you if have:

    • A minimum of 3+ years’ relevant experience;
    • Workshop experience in two wheelers or automotive, electric vehicles would be a plus;
    • Solid knowledge of electrical and electronic diagnosis;
    • Knowledge of tools and materials used in the maintenance;
    • Knowledge of electrical diagrams;
    • Knowledge of hydraulic and electronic systems and modules;
    • Valid Driver’s license;
    • Ability to follow oral and written instructions with attention to detail;
    • Strong communication skills in English;
    • An excellent team player mindset. 

    About Etergo and our culture:

    At Etergo we want petrol scooters to become a thing of the past, and electric scooters to meet their fullest potential. AppScooter is our first step in this mission. Combining connective technology, high quality materials, comfort and safety into a long-range electric scooter, our goal is to show the world that electric is the future, and the future starts with us.

    With over twenty-five nationalities, we're proud of our cultural diversity. Our team consists of everyone from marketing experts, to mechanical engineers and programmers, and a lot in-between. We work very hard, but have fun and take care of each other as well. We have ping pong battles and a cold beer on Fridays to kick off the weekend.

    How to apply:

    No need to write a lengthy formal cover letter, however, we do really appreciate it if you can tell us in your own words why you’d like to work with us and how your experience and personality match up against our requirements. Don’t forget to tell us about a component that you have worked on; something that you are especially proud of!
