About Evergrow
We’re excited to share that our team is growing!
At Evergrow, we seek to build and sustain a carbon-neutral world. We're fulfilling this mission by making financing accessible for those creating low-carbon infrastructure and technology (e.g., wind, solar, renewable natural gas). The new climate bill passed by Congress last summer is a game-changer for renewable energy project developers, and we are building solutions to ensure they can take advantage of associated financial benefits. Our transparency and speed materially lowers transaction costs and helps more projects get built, ultimately accelerating decarbonization.
You should apply if:
You want a direct impact in the renewable energy system: All of our work is focused on achieving our mission of reducing CO2e by 2030 and every year thereafter. We only create and deploy products and services in service of this goal.
You want to work alongside the best: We’ve brought together an immensely talented, thoughtful, and mission-driven team—we care deeply about our work, are highly collaborative, and are eager to welcome other like-minded people to join us in our mission. We’ve spent time at leading companies (e.g., Google, BCG, McKinsey & Co., D.E. Shaw, Pinterest) and academic institutions (e.g., Columbia, MIT, Stanford, Princeton), and are backed by leading investors (including XYZ Venture Capital, Congruent Ventures, First Round Capital, Garuda Ventures, My Climate Journey, Skyview Ventures, and founders and senior executives from Plaid, Brex, Twitch, Instacart, Charm Industrial, Living Carbon, and Bridgewater Associates).
You’re energized about solving complex problems: We are at a new frontier with climate change—the Inflation Reduction Act signals a profound shift in climate policy, with financial incentive (and benefits) at its core. This brings a vast network of wild-west legislations, processes, businesses and people into the fray, and it will be your job to bring order to the chaos. If you're prepared to tackle these challenges and work to build long-lasting, novel solutions and relationships from scratch, we believe you'll be an excellent match.
Where we are today
We’ve inked our inaugural client deals and are expanding our operations at full throttle. As the Business Development Manager, you'll lead the org responsible for serving these clients, acquiring fresh partnerships, and implementing systems to drive exponential growth in both areas.
