    The Client

    Harmonic are excited to be working on an exclusive basis with an incredibly innovative Electric Vehicle start-up that has developed a compact EV perfect for getting around in busy city locations. The technology is aimed at drivers living in the new Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ).

    They are forecasting revenue growth of 300% for 2020 off the back of a strong end to 2019 and have invested heavily in their finance function! After their second round of investment they are looking for a Financial Controller to join the team and help take the business to the next step!

    The business is looking to rapidly progress through series A and B funding in the next 1-2 years and is therefore looking to bring on ambitious, skilled staff to help them achieve this goal.

    They work in a vibrant office in north London and have an amazingly diverse team emanating from their relaxed, non-corporate company culture. The leadership team is equally impressive and helps to promote a dynamic, collaborative environment.
