SolarCity dropped us a note a few days ago that it has 300 job openings across the US, in a variety of different positions (of course). I thought some of our solar-loving readers might be interested in some of those openings, so just passing that along.
You can check out the solar job openings here.
Some other rather interesting notes from the email:
“SolarCity hired 100 new employees in June–or about five hires every work day. Total workforce, built in six years: more than 1,900. We serve 14 states plus D.C.”
Overall, the US has about 100,000 jobs in solar industries. Of course, I’m sure this pales in comparison to Germany or Italy, but it’s a lot more than we had 5 years ago!
