Scottsdale to House Global Service and Quality Operations
ChargePoint opened an office in Scottsdale last week, noting that its number of electric vehicle charging sites in Arizona more than doubled in the past year. The new office will be used for expanded “support and quality operations,” and by year-end is to employ upwards of 50 full-time people.
“Since opening its doors in 2014, ChargePoint Scottsdale has grown more than 800%, now extending its roots in the region and continuing to invest heavily in jobs for the local community,” the company says.
ChargePoint says it’s “investing $400,000 and making a five-year commitment to its Scottsdale facility.”
EV Jobs Often ‘Too Often Overlooked’
“The shift to electric mobility generates many benefits: cost savings for drivers, new marketing tools for businesses and significant environmental savings,” said ChargePoint president and CEO Pasquale Romano said in a release.
“The explosion of jobs related to electric mobility is too often overlooked,” he said. “Our expansion in Scottsdale and worldwide reflects that the transition to electric mobility represents a massive opportunity to create jobs and revitalize communities.”
39,000 and Counting
ChargePoint noted too that it now offers more than 39,000 places to charge, and that besides being the largest EV charging network is “the only one that offers 24/7 support to drivers and site operators.
“At any time of day, EV drivers can call ChargePoint for help finding a charging station, charging an EV or checking on their account.”
ChargePoint says that its Scottsdale office will serve as its global customer service and quality center, “managing and deploying support for North America while administering European support operations with direct regional support.”
