Note: Full-time position

Up to 15 percent of major city’s space is used for parking. At ParkBee we are on a mission to change that. We develop smart, data-driven technology to make the underutilised parking space of office buildings, apartments, hotels and public car parks - available to the public. It is our ambition to fully optimise existing parking infrastructure, transitioning on-street parkers to off-street locations, giving space back to the city. 

We have grown successfully throughout The Netherlands and UK with over 160 ParkBee locations predominantly within the private market. Now, we are expanding our service partnering with a leading, global real-estate investor to set up a joint venture to grow our portfolio, which will have a stratospheric effect on our growth. We are ready to scale and we plan to expand further in Europe. We do that together with our partners, like BMW-Daimler’s ParkNow, who are the leading cashless parking app in Europe, active in 11 countries, and 1000 cities.
