Ampcontrol is at the forefront of developing cutting-edge, AI-powered software designed to optimize electric vehicle (EV) fleet charging.

As a venture-backed company with a remote team of engineers and energy experts located across the U.S. and Europe, and headquartered in New York City, we are dedicated to enabling companies to enhance charging capacity on existing infrastructure and streamline fleet charging logistics.

Our company culture emphasizes minimal hierarchy, and our software architecture and development processes prioritize simplicity and clarity. We offer a comprehensive mentoring program for each developer, designed to foster personal, technical, and domain-specific growth in one of the most dynamic fields of our time.

🌎 Our Mission

Our mission is to support the automotive industry’s transition to 100% electric vehicles. We envision a future where charging is self-managing, reliable, and affordable for companies, fleet operators, and individuals around the world.

💻 Our Tech Stack

We are developing a cloud-agnostic software platform that connects EV chargers to the cloud and optimizes their operation in real-time using WebSocket messaging. Our backend infrastructure is built with Docker, Kubernetes, and FastAPI. We leverage Python for both backend development and data engineering.

For data management, we use PostgreSQL and TimescaleDB to handle our time-series data efficiently. Asynchronous operations are managed with RabbitMQ, while Redis is utilized for caching to ensure high performance.

We prioritize comprehensive testing across all levels, employing a robust testing pipeline based on the testing pyramid, including Behavior-Driven Development (BDD). Although we currently deploy exclusively on Google Cloud Platform, our future plans include expanding our deployments to other cloud platforms and Linux servers.

Our uptime is great and incidents are rare.
