Job Description The Beginning Roam was founded in just as electric mobility was taking off, when electric cars were just arriving on our streets. Roam vision is to make electric transport more accessible to a broader market by making the technology more cost efficient and simplifying deployment. The company focuses on all-electric conversion kits for fleet vehicles such as light trucks, public transport and buses, as well as electric motorcycles and energy systems. These focus areas have been chosen to maximize impact, as these vehicles are some of the highest CO2 emitting vehicles on the market and are largely an untapped opportunity. Therefore creating the standard for electric mobility in Africa. A New Approach This approach creates an ecosystem solution for sustainable transport, integrating technologies from the whole value-chain, with solutions within energy generation all the way to the end user driving the vehicles. Roam was founded as a research project at one of Sweden’s top technical universities with a mission to implement electric mobility in emerging markets. This meant rethinking how the technology would be implemented and how it should be provided. Kenya was chosen as the location for the headquarters as it is the fastest growing nation in sub-saharan Africa. Kenya also has a growing amount of used vehicle imports, which means electric conversions really make sense, replacing expended combustion engines with electric systems, leveraging the existing chassis and implementing proven technology creates a cost effective second life for buses, trucks and fleet vehicles. The future With multiple vehicles in different segments launched, Roam has proven and validated the vehicles in one of the harshest terrains in the world. Showing that electric deployment in emerging markets not only works better, but makes financial sense. Not only saving customers immense amounts of fuel but also reducing CO2 emission from an accelerating global climate change. This is only the start of our journey, in the coming years we will be expanding to several markets around the globe. Simplifying implementation, increasing fleet efficiency, reducing cost and over the decade creating a positive impact on the world around us.SummaryThe Roam technology team runs all of our engineering processes across our motorcycles, buses, energy system, charging technology, and EVs.
