Who we are:
If change means solving one of the biggest challenges of our time by reinventing the way people power their homes, then we say bring it on. It doesn’t hurt that we’re reducing carbon emissions, adding new jobs to the economy, and having fun while doing it. In 2007, Sunrun co-Founders Ed Fenster and Lynn Jurich set out to make home solar mainstream. Upfront cost was a huge barrier to home solar adoption, so they invented the model now known as "Solar as a Service." Sunrun allows homeowners to pay for solar power, not the panels. This means Sunrun owns, maintains, and monitors the system while homeowners pay for the electricity it produces. Each business day, we install $2 million worth of solar and facilitate one solar installation every 10 minutes. Our network of more than 40 leading solar installers employs more than 4,000 people.
The Strategic Finance & Analytics team is responsible for improving strategic and financial decision-making across Sunrun. We serve as a trusted adviser to the business to help inform and guide decision making through business partner support and insightful analyses. We are looking for bright, goal-oriented individuals who will succeed in a fast-paced environment and thrive in building and improving processes that will allow the company to scale with growth. The SF&A team believes in scaling via software (we use Anaplan), not headcount. We have built a planning system and process where every function in the organization plans together in real-time on a monthly basis, so there is less time spent exporting data & more emphasis on focusing on what matters. This allows team members to focus more on opportunity identification at the nation's leading distributed energy installer and financer. With >250K customers, a storage and grid services offerings, and a growing market share, Sunrun is at the epicenter of the clean energy revolution.
Director, Corporate Finance
This position will lead SF&A’s core planning processes along with the synthesis of the story for our CFO and COO. You will be the source of truth for corporate finance reporting and condense what several finance business partners will provide to you as their individual stories into one punchy output for our leadership, driving insight and focus towards the areas needed going forward. For those with Corporate FP&A experience but without Solar or Energy industry experience, this is the perfect entry point into the team, as you see everything from the highest level and learn quickly what are the most important levers in the business. Additionally, this role will keep everyone on our team on track during the monthly and quarterly planning calendar, ensuring we submit and close off items when expected, all while proactively communicating any areas of risk or opportunity.
If you enjoy collaborating and communicating with other finance stakeholders, have an analytical mind, and also have the level of gravitas to still keep teammates on target in a collegial way, this role is for you. It will provide a broad view into a multi-faceted company that typically would require experience at multiple companies (for example, we sell through door to door, field, inside, and channel, while also installing through our crews, build partners, and the channel.). This position reports to the VP of SF&A, but is also expected to have direct exposure to the CFO.
+ Drive core planning processes including monthly, quarterly and long-range forecasting of full corporate consolidated financials based upon inputs provided by the FP&A team members who own the departmental P&Ls and senior management
+ Understand & derive insights from consolidated financials, crafting compelling analyses and reports and communicating insights to senior management and other stakeholders as basis for key decisions
+ Lead the SF&A side of the monthly corporate close process with Accounting group, analyzing monthly flux and reviewing bookings for any reclassifications
+ Lead and compile monthly Plan/Budget to Actual comparisons
+ Develop & own the Executive metrics dashboard and internal financial reporting tools
+ Consolidate monthly actual reporting with in-depth analysis of revenues and expenses across business units which became the platform for senior management decisions
+ Prepare regular Board of Directors presentations/updates and reports for the CEO, CFO and C-Suite staff and other internal and external key stakeholders
+ Supervise and direct analytical, modeling and financial support for corporate-level activity as needed
+ Develop and mentor the corporate finance team, and serve as a resource/support for other members of the SF&A team
+ Collaborate with our financial systems team to design and refine our non-GAAP reporting in an automated way
As this is a highly cross-functional role, candidates are required to be highly analytical and very effective communicators. The candidate should be a self-starter with a strong work ethic, highly team-oriented, inquisitive, enjoy problem solving and focused on driving towards results.
+ Bachelor’s degree from top-tier university in Business, Finance, Accounting, or Economics
+ MBA a plus
+ Experience leading teams
+ 7-10+ years prior work experience in Finance (FP&A, Accounting, Banking, Consulting)
+ Excellent presentation and communication skills
+ Comfortable with fast-paced, demanding environment
+ Experience with Anaplan or other planning platforms HIGHLY preferred, not required.
