JOB DESCRIPTION

ABOUT RAISE GREEN

Raise Green is a financial technology company that allows anyone to invest in community resilience using our SEC Licensed and FINRA approved crowdfunding investment portal. We offer a two-sided marketplace in which solar project creators can crowdfund their projects and individuals can invest in those projects. Our inclusive financing model can be used for any project that has a contractual cash flow such as community solar, microgrids, electrical vehicle infrastructure, community agriculture, energy efficiency, and battery deployments — as long as social and environmental benefits are at the core of their design. We are seeking to crowdfund a healthy, just, and sustainable future to democratize infrastructure ownership.

ABOUT THE POSITION

Solar Project Developer

Create your own green job by becoming a Raise Green Originator. This position entails the creation and management of your own solar project company. Raise Green will equip you with the necessary tools to create, fund, and build, your own community-scale solar project. 

For those looking to enter the clean energy industry or those with prior experience, this is a great opportunity to learn and build an energy project while striving to generate a positive impact in your community. The position is unpaid in the traditional sense, as individual profits will depend on the success of your project. Raise Green will assist you on each step of the way and in response, we take 5% of the total amount raised and a 1-9% equity stake in your project.Think of this as a clean energy franchise - you are your own boss and will be responsible for running a new company that owns and operates the solar project.

This position is unlike a typical developer — it requires someone, or a group of people, who are fundamentally interested in addressing climate change, creating local economic development and creating new investment pathways available to anyone. This requires a certain dedication to developing approaches to societal-scale change that rapidly innovate financial technologies, and also an ability to adapt to the fast-changing nature of managing an early stage startup. This is a full-time commitment during the creation, funding, and building phases of the project, and a part-time commitment for the lifetime of the project.
