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 Remote Places to Work in 2024” 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.

  • Negotiate and close deals, understanding the complexities of stakeholder management

  • Maintain our CRM and own your revenue forecasting

  • Give feedback to our product team on client needs and market trends

  • Some travel required: Monthly client travel within Germany (primarily Berlin and Hamburg), occasional travel to the office in Munich (minimum quarterly, more if desired), and at least 1 international trip to the US per year
