Job Description

ABOUT RAISE GREEN

Raise Green allows anyone to invest in local resilience.

Our SEC-licensed marketplace allows project creators to raise money with securities offerings for their projects through investment (retail, accredited, institutional). IBM helped design our "Originator Engine" that allows anyone to create their own green job with institutional-grade financial models and legal contracts. Our model is designed for any project with a contractual cash flow: community solar, microgrids, electrical vehicle infrastructure, community agriculture, energy efficiency, and battery deployments — as long as social and environmental benefits are at the core of their design.

Raise Green has four full-time employees, two interns, and five contractors.

ABOUT THE POSITION

Our Senior Engineer is dedicated to fighting income inequality, air pollution, and climate change. You will be managing our Originator Engine: a “turbotax of project finance” that allows anyone to create, fund, build, and run their own local solar or climate solutions project. Raise Green is making it easier to open a solar array or a housing co-op in your neighborhood than a gas station or fast food joint.

You help build our techstack to match community-scale green infrastructure projects to investors throughout the U.S. Our Senior Engineer thrives on lack of precedence and adapts to the fast-changing nature of an early stage startup. You’ll have the space to operate and will do so with nearly complete creative license. We look forward to making space for you to create what you imagine is possible, desirable, and inspiring.

Raise Green’s Senior Engineer will be a vanguard in tech charge against climate change this is the defining decade. We have to make a difference.
