Head of Marketing Needed for Rapidly Growing Solar Startup (7 views)

…solar power will be the single largest source of electricity generation People do not understand the magnitude of the business. It’s really very, very significant.”

– 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.

You must have a nose for ROI, and demonstrated ability to drive results.

The projects we choose will depend on the mutually agreed upon highest-ROI pathway to achieving our objectives. As a data-driven company with tremendous volume (think weekly AB tests if bandwidth allows), we have ample opportunity to prove out the right path. If that sounds like fun, this could be an excellent role for you, and there is significant opportunity to explore from day one.

It’s important to underscore that we are not a marketing company – we are a software enabled, mission-driven team working to solve problems in the solar space. Marketing to us means definitively solving customer problems and providing value, and all our marketing efforts need to both tie together into a cohesive story and make the world a better place.

If the above sounds good to you, we’d love to see your application!
