About us

We started our adventure 7 years ago by building an efficient and scalable platform for commercial electric vehicles. Our platform provides data-insights that operators use to extend the range of their vehicles, eliminate emissions and optimize electric operations. Since then, we have grown into the market leader in the US as well as in Western Europe and have landed large projects all around the globe! Our ambition at ViriCiti is high but the atmosphere in our international teams is informal and relaxed. We like to share successes and other stories and we make sure everybody feels at home at our office in Amsterdam.
