In addition to that, you will be part of our monthly ViriCiti updates with snacks and drinks and other events such as our legendary annual ViriCiti weekend and Christmas party.

About us

We started our adventure 9 years ago by building an efficient and scalable platform based on Node.js. 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 and Europe and have landed large projects all around the globe! Our ambition is high but the atmosphere in our team is informal and relaxed. We work hard and play hard. And we not only like to play games to set our minds off things but also to go for drinks on Friday to share successes and other stories. In our team of various nationalities, we make sure everybody feels at home at our office in Amsterdam.
