About the company:

RenewaFi’s mission is to decarbonize the world’s electrical grids by helping every business invest in renewable energy. For environmentally conscious companies, RenewaFi is a renewable energy marketplace that helps you buy renewable energy directly from solar/wind power plants. Instead of navigating the complex process yourself, RenewaFi helps you buy and sell renewable energy quickly, securely, and without unnecessary transaction fees.

We are seeking to hire an experienced power originator with a strong background in renewable energy contracting and power hedging. You will have the opportunity to join a cutting-edge, venture capital-backed climate tech startup and manage your own book of business. You will work with RenewaFi’s CEO to drive business development efforts and assume a key position at the company. Key responsibilities of this role include new client acquisition and engaging existing clients to ensure healthy marketplace activity.

  • A rolodex of industry contacts with LSEs, REPs, merchant power shops, banks, and/or large US corporations/energy consumers
  • A solid track record of successful (V)PPA, EEI and/or ISDA negotiation and execution
  • Confidence in her/his ability to lead and manage own book of business
  • A passion for renewable energy (renewables experience is not required)
  • Integrity
  • A strong understanding of structured power hedges
  • 7+ years of experience in power
  • 5+ years of wholesale origination experience in multiple deregulated markets
  • Commodity and renewable energy contracting risk analysis skills
  • Experience managing teams
  • Previous technology and/or start-up experience

Diversity Statement
RenewaFi is defining the future of renewable energy finance, and an essential part of that is prioritizing a workplace that embraces diversity of thought and identity. We believe in supporting people of varied backgrounds to grow meaningful careers wherein they are empowered to share perspectives that have been historically underrepresented in the tech and energy industries.

The organization we are building is one in which integrity, empathy and grit are valued above stamps on a resume. If you do not have every qualification in this listing, but share these values and are passionate about our mission, we want you to apply.
