About Aurora Solar

Are you ready to join the solar revolution? Look no further than Aurora Solar, where we're on a mission to create a solar energy future for all.  

A fast-growing Series D company, Aurora is disrupting the clean energy industry and changing the course of history with our award-winning, industry-leading software. This software doesn’t just design millions of solar projects, but designs a better tomorrow, empowering solar companies to sell, design, and install residential and commercial solar arrays accurately, seamlessly, and at scale. 

It’s our goal to have every solar installation in the world pass through our software, and we’ve got a stellar team that’s helping us get there. We were named one of “The Best Mid Sized Remote Companies To Work for in 2023” by BuiltIn.com and have been awarded #1 Solar Software platform by Solar Power World, and as we continue to build, we need even more passionate, skilled, and, well, energized people on board.

About the Role

As a Senior Sales Engineer, you will work closely with account executives to craft technical solutions that meet our commercial and industrial (C&I) customers’ needs. You will identify how Aurora’s powerful products, namely HelioScope, fit into a client’s workflow and add value by eliminating manual steps, automating processes, and increasing the speed and efficiency of designing and selling solar. A successful candidate in this role will have deep knowledge of the commercial solar industry, commercial solar system design, and financial modeling, and the ability to think creatively and present solutions to C-level executives both internally and externally.

  • Define technical requirements necessary to implement the identified cost reductions and added-value solutions for the client

  • Suggest new approaches to client operations that use the HelioScope product in more optimized methods while increasing stickiness

  • Become a HelioScope product expert in all aspects, especially in commercial solar design and financing, and provide client feedback to HelioScope’s Product teams

  • Some travel time to industry trade shows and annual team onsites can be expected

What We Value

  • 5 years of experience in a technical role that is customer-facing (preferably SE)

  • Ability to work US East Coast as well as some EU business hours

  • Deep domain experience in commercial solar design, sales, and financing

  • Understanding of APIs and implementations

  • Ability to think creatively to address complex situations
