Job Description

👋 About Us
At elmo, we want everyone to drive an electric vehicle as soon as possible.

We believe that new technology should benefit everyone and work for a brighter, cleaner future for our planet.

Our platform removes the cost and complexity from having an electric vehicle. We believe in ‘usership’ not ownership and provide electric vehicles on low-cost and flexible monthly subscriptions with all services (charging, energy, insurance, maintenance and breakdown) included in the price.

This bundled offering makes us the world's first 'total cost of ownership' subscription platform for electric vehicles.

The team led by Oliver Jones (Angel Investment Network, Startup Microdose Podcast) and Luke Gavin (Element Energy, Octopus Energy) has spent 2019 researching the concept, building key relationships and partnerships and, of course, fundraising!

In addition to closing over £300k pre-seed investment from private investors and early involvement from a fund, Olly and Luke have also assembled an advisory team including the founder of Huel, a former Director of Tesla and BMW Group and the former Head of EV at EDF Energy.
