Green Companies on the Hire!

This article is reposted from our partner in crime good green job options, TheGreenJobBank. (Reminder: if you’re looking for a green job, go ahead and search for one using our green jobs widget on the left sidebar of our site!)

green jobs partnershipWe’ve recently seen an unusual increase in the number of green jobs that TheGreenJobBank has indexed. Even in a period of economic uncertainty, a number of green employers have added many new positions, proof the green economy is more resilient than many others.

  • Energy Management company EnerNOC is one of them. They’ve added 19 new open positions this week alone, to bring the total to 61. These new jobs are in a wide variety of occupations,including sales, marketing, software development, and administrative/management.
  • Environmental company AECOM has added 20 jobs, for a total of 65. New green jobs at AECOM include Air Quality Scientists, Environmental Engineers, and waste/water treatment technicians.
  • Another environmental company, Environmental Resources Management (ERM) added over 30 jobs last week, bringing the total open positions to 172!
  • And, of course, our darling green employer, SolarCity added a stellar 64 jobs this week alone, and 14 last week, bringing its total to 129!21 of its open positions are solar site auditors. As described by SolarCity, “The Site Auditor will provide professional site auditing services to obtain and communicate the necessary technical data to the SolarCity design team for the preparation of permit ready documents needed to facilitate the installation of solar photovoltaic systems. This person will also function as a project manager, field technician, and permit technician when assigned to do so.“And it’s not a surprise that SolarCity also has many openings for sales reps and solar PV installers.
  • Although not at the top of the list for its total open jobs (50), highly respected organization The Nature Conservancy added over 30 jobs last week, which is remarkable for a non-profit organization.


Although not as high as the number of weekly new jobs we saw in January and February (between 2,000 and 2,300 per week), last week’s number of 1,722 is a good number in an economy that has regrettably slowed down in the past few months. However, it is somehow reassuring to see the companies listed above are on a hiring spree, in various segments of the green industry.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
