Director, Solar Development at Wunder
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 our hybrid team taking coffee walks or collaborating on Zoom to solve complex problems together, while also cycling, hiking, climbing, skiing, camping, and dining all over our mile-high home: Colorado.
Wunder is committed to creating and maintaining an inclusive workplace in which all employees have an opportunity to participate and contribute to the success of the business. At Wunder, people are valued for their skills, experiences, and unique perspectives. Our commitment to equity is of course embodied in company policy, but it’s also evident every day in how we conduct business and the internal initiatives and programs we provide for our team.The Role
We have an amazing opportunity for an energetic, deal-oriented, and experienced solar development professional to solve hard problems and push renewable energy forward. Our solar project development team is rapidly acquiring commercial customers and developing solar across the country alongside our national network of solar partners. Specifically, you’ll work in partnership with Wunder’s Account Management team to develop commercial-scale solar projects across the country. You'll go beyond a traditional development role as you will also bring standardization into the untapped sub-megawatt commercial and industrial market by leveraging Wunder’s industry-leading technology platform.(If you’re the type of candidate that we’re looking for, your ears just perked up!)
If you get excited about unlocking the untapped commercial and industry market, joining a team designed for hyper-growth, closing million-dollar deals every week, and building an organization aimed at saving the world, then this is the role for you.

Solar Experience - You have 6+ years of solar project development experience, ideally in commercial, industrial, or utility-scale markets. You have a firm grasp on the development process, including the pitfalls to avoid and the ingredients required for success.

You’re Deal-Oriented & Detail Oriented - You have a successful track record of repeatedly prospecting, developing, and closing complex solar transactions. You have a development pedigree you’re proud of and are excited about closing C&I solar transactions at scale. You’re excited about standardizing these processes and efficiently tracking all the details to achieve milestones on time and on budget in order to close C&I deals at scale.
You Have a Numbers Oriented, Quantitative Mind - You’re comfortable in a spreadsheet and you don’t bat an eye when talking about Credit, NPV, ROI, IRR, etc. You're well versed in making presentations that require heavy quantitative explanations and love explaining the model you’ve been working on to people who might not have the same quantitative caliber.
You Have a Product Mindset - You’re not looking for a traditional development role. You’re excited about using technology to standardize commercial solar, and you’re eager to partner with Product & Engineering to shape our technology strategy for years to come. The idea of building out standardization of this industry gets you jazzed and you’re already contemplating some initial ideas.
You are an Autonomous Executor - You’re self-motivated and outspoken about what is needed to get a job done, and you love to get your hands dirty. You take a high-motor approach to execution and you aggressively work to reduce risk and get ahead of problems before they impact project timelines. In other words, you like to GET. IT. DONE.
You Have a Team Ethos - You thrive in a creative, inventive, fast-paced rapid-growth environment, with people who are passionate about their work and mission. You’re not just excited to work cross-functionally, you demand it.
You’re Flexible, a Quick Responder - The problem we’re trying to solve as an organization is dynamic and each day brings fresh and exciting challenges. You can react quickly and efficiently when called upon to change or pivot.
You Believe That No Problem is Too Hard - In an industry where people are constantly stuck, we find ways to get it done. You know how to articulate and roll out solutions, recognizing there are many solutions to the same problem. You find new and effective ways to streamline and create processes to increase efficiency.
