Sunrun for the developing world
Bright is a venture-backed startup building the solar operating system to power every home across the world. Our platform allows homeowners to easily adopt solar with no initial investment and save 20% or more on their electricity bill. In doing so, we’re enabling rapid solar adoption and pioneering a sustainable energy future.
We’re looking for someone interested in having an impact far beyond pixels on a screen, or rows in a database. We believe global warming is one of the most important challenges in our lifetime, and Bright provides a unique opportunity for you to use engineering skills to make a serious impact. The process for homeowners to adopt solar power is unnecessarily complicated, and the industry, especially internationally, is young.
This is an incredibly unique opportunity as we’re growing very quickly as the market leader but just getting around to hiring one of our first dedicated frontend engineers. We’ve operated lean and this is a one-of-a-kind role for someone that wants to be early but is looking for a low risk opportunity that will certainly have an impact on the world. Today, Bright is installing 5 solar installations every day all across Mexico with software acting as a coordinator for all the parties involved. Similar to AirBnb, Uber, or OpenDoor - software is our core strategy - and we apply it to almost every team - from logistics, to finance, and customer success. With projects ranging from marketing chat bots, to solar monitoring (IoT) integrations, to logistics optimization - there is never a dull moment.
While Bright shares the same benefits many startups offer, we also have a few unique ones:
Bright is Mexico’s #1 residential solar provider (think Sunrun for the developing world, starting first in Mexico). We provide the financing and software that enable thousands of student ambassadors and retail promoters to offer cheaper electricity to homes at no upfront cost, and we work with our network of hundreds of local installers and distributors to satisfy the resulting demand. Our first market is Mexico, which has more sun, higher electricity rates, and lower labor costs than the US. Bright's investors include First Round Capital, Y Combinator, and other top Silicon Valley firms.
