EnergySage is looking for an enthusiastic, sharp and personable candidate to join the Marketplace Team. We are the eyes and ears of the company and are on the lookout for someone who connects well with people of many different personality types, is comfortable with autonomy, and is fearless over the phone.

The Solar Advisor serves as an expert in solar energy, helping consumers navigate the process of purchasing solar energy systems for their homes and businesses. The Solar Advisor also supports solar companies in growing their businesses with the EnergySage Marketplace. Background in solar energy is great to have. Most important are enthusiasm for clean energy technologies and a commitment to excellent customer service.

Solar Advisors also support EnergySage’s broader team with their in-depth observations of solar customers and solar companies. One of the most important functions of this role is to channel feedback from both consumers and solar installers to the rest of the company. This requires listening and empathy, organization of data, and synthesis of insights.
