  • Excellent verbal, written and presentation skills.

  • Knowledge of the solar or energy industry is desirable but not required.

What we offer

The salary package will be commensurate with experience and will include bonus plus shares.

We offer flexible work arrangements, free yoga classes (upstairs!) and swimming access, and have an active social committee that celebrates wins and special events.  

Solar Analytics is a forward-thinking business and our mission is to empower people to navigate the changing energy landscape. We are a BCorp, which means that have an on-going commitment to being a purpose-driven organisation that creates benefits for all stakeholders, not just shareholders. And we meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
