over de organisatie

Imagine a future where you can earn 500€ per year just by charging your car. Now imagine a job where you helped make this happen. Our Deftpower team has big ideas for improving electric car charging and draws on more than a decade’s worth of experience in the EV charging business in realising them.

We are rapidly building Europe´s most advanced platform, recalibrating electric vehicle drivers, their cars, charging points and the grid in a sustainable eco-system. One in which everything is integrated, and anyone can join. We believe that this market needs to grow quickly, and that with the right team - our clients and EV drivers can be happier, businesses more profitable, and society cleaner.

Because very relevant people and companies believe in us, we can grow rapidly over the next two years. As a result, we're on the lookout for new, geeky, funny, and brilliant team members to join us!

To help us in our mission we are looking for a Business Analyst, for our offices in either Arnhem or Berlin.


For this position, it is important that you are from the EU (Deftpower is not acknowledged referent) and therefore have a work permit to work in the Netherlands or Germany.

With your colleagues you will find out what it really means to charge your electric vehicle in the most cost efficient and the most effortless way. Understanding the energy markets will make this job easier. Here are some of the tasks you will be performing:

1. Product Vision and Strategy:

  • Define and articulate a compelling product vision aligned with company objectives.
  • Develop and execute a strategic roadmap for the continuous enhancement of our smart charging platform.

2. Stakeholder Engagement:

  • Collaborate with key stakeholders, including engineering, design, marketing, and customer support, to align product development with business goals.
  • Communicate effectively to bridge the gap between technical teams and non-technical stakeholders.

3. User-Centric Design:

  • Advocate for a user-centric approach in product development, leveraging user feedback and market research to inform feature prioritization and improvements.
  • Work closely with UX/UI designers to ensure an intuitive and enjoyable user experience.

4. Feature Prioritization and Backlog Management:

  • Prioritize features based on a deep understanding of market needs, customer feedback, and technical considerations.
  • Manage and groom the product backlog, maintaining alignment with business priorities and strategic objectives.

5. Agile Development Facilitation:

  • Facilitate Agile development processes, including sprint planning, backlog refinement, and retrospectives.
  • Collaborate closely with development teams to ensure timely and successful product releases.

6. Market Analysis and Competitive Intelligence:

  • Conduct market analysis to identify trends, customer needs, and opportunities for differentiation.
  • Stay informed about competitors and market dynamics, providing insights for strategic decision-making.

7. Performance Monitoring and Optimization:

  • Establish and monitor key performance indicators (KPIs) to evaluate the success and effectiveness of the smart charging platform.
  • Drive continuous improvement by analyzing performance metrics and user feedback.

Working at Deftpower is both rewarding and challenging. There are many moving parts, partners, suppliers, clients, neighbours, and we are a young company that is still learning. We tend to think we are the smartest kid in the class but make mistakes daily. And have a lot of fun doing so.

We want you to be happy and bring positive energy to join us in our mission. That's why we've introduced quarterly D-Days, where all the fantastic team members from Arnhem and Berlin come together to have a good time. But that's not the only thing we offer for your happiness:

  • Exposure to our partners and clients in the energy, automotive, and financial industries.
