- Elon Musk
Once a fringe thing hippies did, “going solar” is now going mainstream. It took over 30 years for the first 1 million solar installations to be completed. It only took another 3 years to install the second million. Over the next 2 years another 1 million homes will go solar and there are 90 million American households to go after that! Solar technology is cheaper, better and more reliable than ever. Unless your head is buried in a coal mine, it’s becoming abundantly clear that solar is the future.
With rapid growth, mainstream adoption, and a presidential mandate to hit a 100% clean-energy economy by 2050 comes massive investment and opportunity in the space. Installation companies are growing quickly, making them hungry for even more growth, and solar continues to accelerate even in a post-COVID world (the industry grew ~37% in 2020 despite the pandemic).
The last thing you want is the power going out during a quarantine, and it’s also a product that saves people money, bolsters family security, and can be sold over the phone. The technology is dialed, the installation process is clean, but it’s still a challenge to find customers. Since customers that convert into sales are the lifeblood of any company, sales leads are the raw tool that unleashes massive growth for solar installers.
Finding qualified customers: that’s what we do at SolarLeadFactory.
SolarLeadFactory has helped over 1 million homeowners looking to buy solar. We have helped hundreds of solar installers grow their businesses - and aim to help hundreds more.
Don't be fooled by our name: we're more than just a 'lead-gen company'. Our business is built on a proprietary software platform allowing us to deliver a best in class product, our process allows us to innovate constantly, and our team is top-tier. We have in-house developers, digital marketing experts, and data scientists relentlessly driving the product forward.
Our mission: to unlock consumer demand for solar power.
You’re looking for a way to make a huge positive difference in the world & help the companies on the front lines of the solar revolution!
You want to be part of a small but driven team making a big impact on one of the most pressing issues of our time. You share some of our core values including “80/20 Thinking”, “Make Learning the Key Metric”, “Always be Testing Something,” and “Master your Craft”.
Most importantly, you love to code, and you and aren’t intimidated by wading into an existing codebase and building on top of as well as polishing and improving what’s already been built.
In order to be successful in this position you must be skilled, highly organized, efficient, proactive, analytical, tech savvy, and an excellent communicator.
Do you want to learn? To grow? To make a difference?
You will play a crucial role in building, maintaining, optimizing, and improving our lead distribution and processing application and the related microservices we’ve built from scratch over the last nearly 9 years. Our internal tech has been a critical factor in our growth and acceleration to become the number 1 solar lead generation company, and we will continue to double down on it.
Our app does heavy lifting for us, including real-time lead scoring and validation, along with price matching in a complex marketplace dynamic (among numerous other things I can’t list here). We’re constantly evolving to meet needs in a high-growth environment.
Our development process for new software is based on rapidly changing business objectives, quarterly project work, the needs for refactoring/rebuilding core technology, and responding to day to day technological issues that come up.
Your primary role initially will be building out new features and working on our existing microservices, as well as addressing bugs and other timely issues that come up. You must be extremely comfortable working on/maintaining/improving existing code, as we've built up quite a codebase over the years. Based on our small team size there will be ample opportunity to work on every part of our system, whether that means building new services designed to improve our product to rebuilding existing microservices to optimizing our existing code.
Your day to day will be knocking out weekly Scrum points alongside and managed by our lead software developer who has been with us since 2014. You will work directly with our lead Product Manager, who will be helping to plan weekly sprints, as well as the rest of the team.
We are shaking up our industry and working day in and day out to get solar on everyone’s roof. Come shape your future & the future of the world.
If you’re game to make a big difference and reap the rewards, come join us!
Please note that our target date for hiring this position is May 15th, 2021.
