    This is who we are:


    If change means solving one of the biggest challenges of our time by reinventing the way people power their homes, then we say bring it on. It doesn’t hurt that we’re reducing carbon emissions, adding new jobs to the economy, and having fun while doing it.


    In 2007, Sunrun co-Founders Ed Fenster and Lynn Jurich set out to make home solar mainstream. Upfront cost was a huge barrier to home solar adoption, so they invented the model now known as "solar service." Sunrun allows homeowners to pay for solar power, not the panels. This means Sunrun owns, maintains, and monitors the system while homeowners pay for the electricity it produces.


    As the largest residential solar provider in the nation, we install over a megawatt of solar generating capacity each business day, providing clean, affordable energy to hundreds of thousands of customers.

    • Analyze and report project profitability and return on investment
    • Collaborate with colleagues in various functional areas of the company to meet operational and reporting requirements of transactions
    • Provide timely ad hoc analysis to support company financial planning and decision-making



    • 1-2 years’ experience at a major investment bank or private equity firm (experience in energy, power or renewable energy preferred) or a renewable energy company
    • Strong work ethic and ability to deliver high-quality results in a fast-paced work environment
    • Detail-oriented and organized with superior analytical abilities
    • Excellent communication, presentation and interpersonal skills
