The Answer is Easy

In life you are only given a few opportunities to be a part of something big. The opportunity to join the SolarCity team is one of those opportunities. We are at the very beginning of the clean energy boom and we intend to ride this wave for decades to come.

SolarCity was started by two determined brothers with a better way to deliver clean, more affordable energy. Founded in 2006, SolarCity has since grown to become America’s largest solar provider with more than 14,000 employees—and we’re just getting started.

We believe in clean, renewable energy. It's as simple as that. We could go on and on about climate change, pollution, oil prices, and politics but rather than getting stuck in a complicated debate we are choosing to take action by putting up solar panels to harness the energy from the sun in order power homes and commercial buildings all across the country.

Do not pass up on the opportunity to work for a company who is on the forefront of innovation, takes care of it's employees, and saves the planet all at the same time.
