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.

RenewaFi is looking for a Front-end Javascript Engineer to join us in building the future of renewable energy finance. The ideal candidate will be a React expert who has experience building fast rendering components in data-intensive applications. This candidate should be able to architect and code in an efficient, future-oriented style that enables effective collaboration.

As an engineer at RenewaFi you will be working on innovative software that will be used to accelerate our country’s transition to renewable energy. This is the ideal job for an engineer who is excited about building digital products that are genuinely innovative and first of their kind.

As an early member of our team, you will have a foundational impact on the code base and our company culture. The engineering decisions you make will be yours to see through, and the results of your work will be deployed in days, not weeks. Your thoughts and opinions about our product roadmap will be highly valued and important in shaping what we build. This is an opportunity to hone your engineering expertise while working on an impactful product.

This job offers an unparalleled opportunity for you to gain experience in renewables, startups and engineering. We are a supportive and passionate team looking for an engineer who can join us in helping to move our planet to a zero-carbon future.
