Parties across the entire solar lifecycle use Raptor Maps’ data model to manage ever growing utility-scale solar portfolios. We are an industry leader with hundreds of customers, including owners, builders, operators, and aerial service providers, across over 40 countries with 200+ million solar panels under management. Our software platform is essential in the fight against climate change.

We’re looking for a talented full stack software engineer to join our Inspections team. You’ll play a critical role in building software that provides actionable insights for owners and operators of solar farms around the world. Our engineers collaborate with product managers and designers to define features and technical strategies which advance the team’s mission.

  • Communicate and problem solve with various stakeholders such as customer facing teams, product management, and leadership.

Qualifications
