Slide background

Join us in the fight against climate change.

We’re hiring for the following positions:

Chief of Staff

Who we are looking for:

We are looking for an entrepreneurial and critical thinker to work on our most important projects. One day you might be determining the viability of the Put in a new market, the next working on a pitch deck for a new HelioStats client, and then round out the week by building a new process to measure KPIs. We are a startup that has found product-market fit, and have a lot of scaling challenges ahead of it.  You will be working directly with the C-suite to support critical business needs. A successful candidate in this role can work independently to develop a decision-making framework, gather supporting evidence for their position, and clearly and concisely make recommendations and build consensus.

What you can look forward to:

  • Working with the CEO and COO (Rich and Jason) to solve the company’s most critical challenges
  • Owning your work, from strategic inception to successful execution, in a low-bureaucracy environment
  • Cross-functional interactions with senior management, business development, product, and engineering
  • Market-facing exposure, to help drive product adoption
  • Collaborating with a team of experienced solar veterans committed to helping you succeed
  • Solving a critical problem–the cost of capital–that has hindered the solar industry since its inception

What you likely need to do the job well:

  • Critical thinker: You have frameworks you use to approach problems, can quickly synthesize large volumes of (often conflicting) information, and develop a business thesis. You can clearly present your proposal with supporting data. You might have been a management consultant, business analyst, or project finance associate.
  • Self starter: You can independently lead and manage projects. You know when to ask for help, but also trust your analytical frameworks.
  • Solar experience: You are ideally conversant in the dynamics of the solar industry
  • Financial toolkit: You can build basic financial models in Excel and can currently master, or have the capacity to learn, topics related to corporate finance.
  • A thinker and a doer: You can hold multiple stakeholders’ perspectives in your head, devise a solution, and then rapidly build consensus around that solution.
  • Willingness to roll up your sleeves: We are a startup and need people who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty (like firing up Excel to build a market model or picking up a phone to call someone you don’t already know).

Location: SF Bay Area (required).

Head of Transactions

Who we are looking for:

We are looking for an entrepreneurial deal-maker who loves to structure and close innovative deals, and ultimately build and lead a team to scale up the function. You will work closely with the CEO and COO and be given ownership of our product design, deal execution, and claims management. To help you be successful, we have assembled a talented team and built up a clientele that includes some of the biggest investor names in the industry.

What you can look forward to:

  • Playing a leading role in developing a brand new line of business
  • Closing deals brought in by the Originations team, negotiating terms with financial institutions and solar developers, and being the product expert in a new product category
  • Designing cutting-edge hedges with the backing of Swiss Re, the world’s 2nd largest reinsurer
  • Building new processes to track key financial metrics across the business
  • Bringing your creativity and expertise to create value across the capital stack
  • Working with a team of experienced solar veterans committed to helping you succeed
  • Solving a critical problem- the cost of capital- that has hindered the solar industry since its inception

What you likely need to do the job well:

  • Project finance experience: You are fluent in the language of solar project finance and completely unfazed by the terms “partnership flip” and “back-leverage.”
  • Experience with contract negotiation: You know what points are heavily discussed and why the cashflow waterfalls are designed the way they are. You can anticipate client questions before they arise. You likely have worked on project finance at a law firm, a bank, a solar developer, or an investment bank.
  • A thinker and a doer: You can hold multiple stakeholders’ perspectives in your head, devise a solution, and then rapidly build consensus around that solution.
  • Sweats the details: You care deeply about making sure that each deal is done right, and may have even seen what happens when details are missed.
  • Willingness to roll up your sleeves: We are a startup and need people who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty (like firing up Excel to test a financial model or picking up a phone to call someone you don’t already know).

Location: SF Bay Area (required).
