Sunrun Sr. Software Engineer in Albany, New York

Everything we do at Sunrun is driven by a determination to transform the way we power our lives. We know that starts at the individual employee level. We strive to foster an environment you can thrive in through our commitment to diversity, inclusion and belonging.

Sunrun’s Design, Engineering, and Financial Services organization is seeking a Senior Software Engineer to join our Engineering Tools team. Sunrun designs and deploys residential solar-powered energy solutions at a massive scale. We’re really good at this, and now we need you to help us get better.

The complexities of designing and delivering these solutions to unique homes and properties are extremely challenging. We need you to develop the software systems that generate real-world installable system plans and permit sets from solar designs, managing the complex interplay between physical hardware layouts, structural needs, electrical specifications, and regulatory requirements across thousands of jurisdictions.

About You

You’re a seasoned, full-stack owner with experience building software systems that accelerate human users. You’re a creative and human-oriented problem solver – you look beyond the immediate task or problem to identify solutions no one else has thought of yet. You’re passionate about power, energy, and renewables and are excited to define software systems and processes that accelerate the deployment of new solar power systems. You relentlessly focus on operational and engineering excellence because when your software is down, Sunrun can’t serve our customers -- you sweat the details. You take ownership of outcomes, ensuring you deliver software on time, with high quality, helping your coworkers to do the same.

Worried about making the change to work in solar power? Don’t be! We’re looking for strong, motivated, people-oriented engineering leaders who are excited to deliver products that fight climate change; we’re happy to teach you everything you need to (or want to) know about the renewables industry.
