About Wunder

Wunder is building a Modern Energy Company.

We were founded with one simple vision: to address the greatest crisis of our generation by accelerating the deployment of solar energy. In doing so, we help businesses, municipalities, and schools save money by delivering clean on-site power. We convert simple warehouses into electrified industrial platforms built for the future. We enable the nation’s leading commercial and industrial real estate firms to capture the benefits of solar across their properties. We align ESG goals with revenue targets, and the renewable energy assets we’re deploying today will power America’s tomorrow.

Wunder currently holds more than $1 billion in solar assets under management and capital commitments. Our team has evaluated more than 10,000 properties for solar across all 50 states. Our average solar system—about 480 kilowatts in size—can offset 350,000 pounds of coal burned each year of system operation!


The Role

In this role, you will oversee the construction of commercial-scale solar projects nationwide. You’ll be responsible for managing the construction process for a portfolio of solar projects across all construction milestones, from NTP to Final Acceptance. You’ll go beyond a traditional development role as you will also bring standardization into the untapped sub-megawatt commercial and industrial market by leveraging Wunder’s industry-leading technology platform.

Specifically, you’ll collaborate internally across all departments to ensure projects are constructed on-time and on-budget, while maintaining the highest standards of quality and safety. You will lead the charge in partnering with and managing our Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) partners and vendors. Additionally, you will develop and continuously improve robust processes and systems that drive growth, profitability, and repeatability.

If you get excited about unlocking the untapped commercial and industrial market, joining a team designed for hyper-growth, and building an organization aimed at saving the world, then this is the role for you.


About You

  • Construction Management Experience - You have 5–10+ years of managing complex construction projects and have a proven track record of coordinating with internal teams, subcontractors, and vendors to ensure timely project execution and delivery. You’ve managed multiple projects concurrently and enjoy taking the initiative to reduce risk and get ahead of problems before they impact project timelines or budgets. No stone is ever left unturned during your planning and execution.

  • You’re Detail-Oriented & Organized - You’re meticulous and take a “zero defect” approach to problem solving and deliverables. You go the extra mile to ensure all the details to achieve milestones are taken care of on time and on budget, while ensuring compliance with all safety regulations and industry standards.

  • You’re Customer Oriented - You have a demonstrated ability to deliver a high-quality customer experience, ensuring that every stakeholder involved knows what’s happening, why it’s happening, and when it needs to be done.

  • You’re a Strategic Thinker & Quantitative - You’re able to think quantitatively about project economics and timelines in order to make decisions about what maximizes value for clients while minimizing risk for Wunder. You are able to identify and mitigate risks and implement corrective actions as necessary.

  • You’re an Excellent Communicator - You are an effective communicator, regardless of audience. You can shift seamlessly between communicating with internal stakeholders from project owners to senior management, construction partners, financing partners, and clients, ensuring clear and concise project updates.

  • You Have a Team Ethos - You thrive in a creative, inventive, fast-paced rapid-growth environment, with people who are passionate about their work and mission. You’re not just excited to work cross-functionally, you crave it.

  • You’re Flexible, a Quick Responder - The problem we’re trying to solve as an organization is dynamic and each day brings fresh and exciting challenges. You can react quickly and efficiently when called upon to change or pivot.
  • You Believe That No Problem is Too Hard - In an industry where people are constantly stuck, we find ways to get it done. You know how to articulate and roll out solutions, recognizing there are many solutions to the same problem. You find new and effective ways to streamline and create processes to increase efficiency.
  • Located in Boulder or Denver, CO - Candidates must currently live in, or be willing to relocate to, the Boulder/Denver area. You are also comfortable with traveling to project sites approximately 25% of the time.
