About the company:

Dandelion is a home geothermal company offering affordable geothermal installations that provide heating, cooling and hot water to homes by exchanging heat with the ground beneath them. Dandelion became an independent company in Spring 2017, after getting started at X , "the innovation engine of Alphabet."​

About Us: Dandelion Energy is a leading provider of sustainable energy solutions, specializing in geothermal heating and cooling systems. We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and helping homeowners make eco-friendly choices for their homes. Our team of experts is dedicated to delivering efficient and environmentally responsible solutions.

Job Overview: We are seeking a talented and experienced Geothermal Designer to join our team. As a Geothermal Designer, you will play a crucial role in our mission to provide homeowners with energy-efficient heating and cooling solutions. You will be responsible for visiting homes, conducting initial surveys, and designing geothermal systems while working closely with customers to meet their specific needs.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Customer Consultation: Schedule and conduct in-home consultations with prospective clients to understand their heating and cooling needs, energy consumption, and preferences.
  • Site analysis: Perform detailed site surveys and assessments to evaluate the suitability of the property for geothermal system installation. Assess the drilling feasibility, heating load, ducts, and other relevant factors.
  • System Design: Collaborate with the customer to design a geothermal heating and cooling system that meets their requirements and maximizes energy efficiency. Create detailed system layouts and specifications.
  • Cost Estimation: Provide accurate cost estimates for the geothermal system, including equipment, labor, and any necessary modifications to the property.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Ensure that all designs adhere to local building codes, regulations, and environmental standards. 
  • Documentation: Maintain detailed records of site surveys, design plans, and customer communications. Generate reports and documentation for internal and customer use.
  • Collaboration: Work closely with sales and installation teams to ensure the successful implementation of the geothermal systems designed.
  • Continuous Learning: Stay up-to-date with industry trends, new technologies, and best practices related to geothermal heating and cooling systems.

Qualifications:

  • Previous experience in HVAC system design and installation.
  • Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, or a related field (preferred but not essential).
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Strong problem-solving abilities.
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team.
  • Valid driver's license and reliable transportation.

Benefits:

  • Competitive salary and performance-based bonuses.
  • Health, dental, and vision insurance.
  • Retirement savings plan.
  • Opportunities for professional development and training.
  • A supportive and collaborative work environment.
  • Contributing to a more sustainable future.

If you are passionate about sustainable energy solutions and have the expertise to design efficient geothermal systems while providing excellent customer service, we encourage you to apply for this Geothermal Designer position at Dandelion Energy. Join us in making a positive impact on the environment and helping homeowners embrace renewable energy solutions.

You’ll love working at Dandelion because:

We’re solving the world’s hardest problems. You’ll have the opportunity to pioneer renewable heating and cooling from the ground-up (literally). There’s no established playbook for fighting climate change, so your work will be messy, challenging, and build a better, cleaner world.

We’re good people. It sounds simple, and it is. We are passionate, vision-driven, low-ego, and treat one another with kindness and respect. We challenge ideas here, not people.

We hold each other accountable. We celebrate our wins and learn from our losses. We’re honest, realistic, and transparent across all areas of the business, every day -- not just at our monthly all-hands meeting.

************************************

Since spinning out of Google X in 2017, Dandelion Energy has been an energy innovation company working to electrify home heating. We create and install geothermal heat pumps to replace fossil-fueled furnaces and boilers. We’ve grown into an organization of over 100 employees and have become the largest residential geothermal heat pump installation company in the United States. Our carbon impact to date is the equivalent to taking over 25,000 cars off the road... and that impact is accelerating with our growth!

Our cross-disciplinary team consists of experts in geothermal, drilling, heat pump software engineering, HVAC installation, solar and solar financing, behavioral economics, and high-growth operations amongst other backgrounds. With the potential to catalyze and scale a widespread transition to sustainable and affordable heating and cooling, our work is both complex yet rewarding. We are working to create a wholesale shift in how people heat and cool their homes — join us!
