Wanted: Jr. Service Operations Engineer excited to shape the future of mobility!


Our drive

We love cities. And we’re doing something to make our cities healthier, cleaner and more liveable. How? By providing parking solutions that are simple, quick and effortless.

Today, PARK NOW is the world’s leading provider of on-demand mobile payments for on- and off-street parking. We make life easier for more than 17,000,000 drivers in over 700 cities in Europe.

As Junior Service Operations Engineer you provide 2nd line support to PARK NOW internal and external customers, such as cities, enforcement parties, off-street parking (garages) and our own cashless parking apps. Customers rely on you to apply your technical and/or product knowledge as well as communication skills to resolve their incidents, answer their questions and fulfil their service requests.

As first point of contact you do initial classification, prioritization and analysis to determine which subteam to assign a ticket.
