Electriphi was founded in 2018 and is headquartered in Palo Alto California. The company provides software solutions with the singular focus of enabling the transition to zero emission vehicles across heavy, medium and light duty fleets in public as well as private segments.
Electriphi was acquired June of 2021 by Ford Motor Company. Electriphi now operates as a wholly owned subsidiary responsible for defining the Go To Market for Ford Pro as it relates to charging. The newly formed Ford Pro Charging is a business unit within Ford Pro responsible for delivering End-to-End solutions for our commercial customers. This includes software, hardware, and the necessary services to design, build and operate commercial charging for Ford and Non-Ford customers alike.
Who are we?
Ford Pro Charging is the branch of Ford’s commercial arm focused on the urgently-needed transition to zero-emission mobility. Heavy, medium and light duty fleets in public and private segments use our products to put aside worries about charger downtime, complex EV operations, and charging cost management to focus instead on their fleet-enabled customer and business goals.

How do we work?
- Over-communicating to ensure clarity and healthy remote collaboration
- Challenging directly and respectfully to ensure the team stays focused on ambitious, efficient, and effective customer solutions
- Leaning in when there’s a fire. Though acquired by Ford, Electriphi is a start-up in our speed, growth, and culture. We don’t say, “that’s not my problem.” We do say, “here’s how I can help” with an eye to the sustainability and scalability of processes and ownership
- Building strong bones for a new and scaling business: contributing to process and team culture in tandem with product execution
- Our team is spread across multiple continents and time zones. Flexibility is in our DNA.
Outcomes matter. We empower people to take ownership of their work and schedules. We don’t micromanage.
If you can see possibilities where others see problems, have candid conversations to ensure all voices are heard, and thrive in a collaborative environment where clear communication is paramount, you’ll be empowered to do great work here.
