Director, Project Finance at Wunder Capital
Wunder was founded with one simple vision: to address the greatest crisis of our generation by accelerating the proliferation of solar energy. Members of our team have raised hundreds of millions of dollars in private equity, developed innovative energy infrastructure solutions for the Department of Energy, and built digital products that are used and loved by millions of people. Now, we’re saving the world.
Our team is a unique hybrid of finance, engineering, design, and business development. Although our backgrounds and responsibilities vary wildly, we’re a tight-knit bunch that loves cross-pollination. And while our mission is big, we try to keep things light. We provide a happy, productive workplace, and we’re constantly improving it! You’ll find us hustling on the job while also cycling, hiking, boarding, skiing, camping, and dining all over our mile-high home; Colorado.The Role
We have an amazing opportunity for a detail-oriented and financially-minded leader to solve hard problems and push renewable energy forward.
Specifically, you’ll work in partnership with Wunder’s Account Management team to finance commercial-scale solar projects across the country. You’ll evaluate offtaker credit, model system production and cash flows, perform detailed project diligence, and structure compelling financing packages. You’re motivated by digging into complex financial models and ensuring all of the details needed to finance solar projects are in place. You'll go beyond a traditional finance role as you will create new organizational systems and processes that will help move us closer to our goal.
If you get excited about bringing an entirely new asset class to market, closing million-dollar deals every week, building an organization aimed at saving the world, and ensuring that all of the financial details needed to make this happen are covered, this is the role for you.
