During the pandemic, the company has hired 25 people since March as 19 of them were newly created positions. “With the forecasted exponential growth in EV adoption, we anticipate significantly increased demand for EV charging infrastructure in the coming months and years. To ensure that we are positioned to fully capitalize on the opportunities we’re seeing now, as well as those farther out, Blink is strategically adding talented employees across our organization. In addition to new hires in operations and technology, we are expanding our sales team to drive network growth and support key partners such as Cushman Wakefield and Envoy Technologies,” said Michael D.

The new positions were strategically positioned at the company’s corporate headquarters in Miami Beach, its operations facility in Phoenix, sales and tech positions in California, and several sales positions across the country. “According to Grandview Research, the global electric vehicle charging infrastructure market, valued at more than $11.74 billion (2019), is expected to grow by 32.0% from 2020 to 2027. We are fortunate that despite the economic challenges presented by Covid-related shutdowns during the past several months, we have been able to invest in the human resources to be a part of this global growth,” Mr. Farkas added.
