Attention skiers: A great gap year opportunity at Solaflect!

Solaflect has a perfect opportunity for any gap year students who love to ski. An unusually large number of college-bound students have decided that the 2020 college experience is not going to be all that they hoped, and are postponing enrollment for a year — or current college students have decided to take a year off.  Solaflect is searching for a few great people for the next year — with a nice 4 month winter break to enjoy a great ski season!

Why is this opportunity great for skiers? Our solar Tracker installation season starts in mid-April and ends in mid-December. So we’re looking for some smart, hard-working and capable students who would like to join us this summer, work until the holidays in December, enjoy a great ski season, and then rejoin us in April until the start of college in the fall of 2021. Why might this opportunity be intriguing? We can provide…

  • An exciting entry into the rapidly growing renewable energy industry.
  • Valuable opportunities to learn new skills and gain exposure to a business environment, a manufacturing facility where we build Trackers, construction trades, and the many technical skills involved in building, installing and maintaining an industrial robot (which is what the Tracker really is).
  • Exposure to a talented and energetic team — e.g. this summer we have mechanical engineering students from M.I.T. and the University of Massachusetts, an electrical engineering student at Trinity College, along with a full-time recent graduate of the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College.
  • A varied and experienced full-time year round team that can provide considerable mentoring to the right students.
  • Team members earn competitive compensation if they are eager to learn new skills, are hard working, and flexible.

Please spread the word to your network of children, grand-children, nieces, nephews, friends and neighbors who might be interested, or know someone who could benefit from this experience at Solaflect. Interested applicants can send a cover letter and resume to info@solaflect.com

We’re Hiring Solar Electricians!

Solar Technician

We are growing our solar installation team and are excited to find full time solar electricians to perform electrical work associated with the installation of Solaflect’s solar Trackers at residential and commercial sites.

Founded over a decade ago, Solaflect designs, manufactures and sells the innovative Solar PV Tracker that follows the sun all day and delivers 40 percent more solar energy per panel than fixed/rooftop solar.

We’ve honed our experience and become an established brand and leader in the Upper Valley, and now serve Vermont, New Hampshire, Western Massachusetts, and just installed our first solar tracker in California.

We are growing rapidly and we’re committed to hiring exceptional, self-motivated team members and providing them with all the tools they need to be successful.

If you’re intrigued by innovative ways to replace fossil fuel with renewable energy, and you want to join an energized team of hard-working, smart and fun people committed to rapidly expanding the adoption of solar, we may just have a role for you.

What you’ll be doing as a solar electrician:

  • Work off electrical design and layout plans to complete Tracker installations
  • Effectively communicate with project engineer, team members, sub-contractors and customers
  • Install and wire Trackers, modules, inverters and interconnections
  • Assist with permit applications and inspections
  • Troubleshooting and service calls as needed
  • Maintain a safe, clean and respectful jobsite, truck and shop
  •   Work closely with our sales and engineering teams to ensure organizational effectiveness and efficiency

What we’ll want you to have:

  • Registration in the state of Vermont and New Hampshire as a licensed electrician; MA is a bonus. (Note that Solaflect will also consider and support individuals interested in becoming Apprentice Electricians.)
  • Solar-related work and experience preferred, but not required
  • Residential and small commercial electrical experience
  • Ability and willingness to work in extreme environments – e.g. snow/rain, hot sun, crawl spaces
  • Must have valid driver’s license and reliable means of transportation
  • Ability to interact effectively with suppliers, consultants, sales staff and customers
  • Ability to learn new software and online tools to aid project development and design
  •  Excellent verbal and written communication, and listening skills
  • Ability and confidence to work independently
  • Self-motivated, hard working, with a high level of organization and planning skills
  • Plenty of positive energy and a history of contributing to healthy team environments

Compensation will be competitive and commensurate with experience.
