Job Description


Raise Green is an SEC Licensed fintech company that allows anyone to invest in local, community resilience. Our marketplace allows project creators to raise money for their projects through investment from anyone (retail, accredited, institutional). Our inclusive finance model is designed any project with a contractual cash flow: community solar, microgrids, electrical vehicle infrastructure, community agriculture, energy efficiency, and battery deployments — as long as social and environmental benefits are at the core of their design. We are seeking to invest in a healthy, just, and sustainable future that allows anyones to access and benefit from climate resilient local infrastructure.



Our Lead Engineer is dedicated to fighting income inequality, air pollution, and climate change. You will be managing our Originator Engine: a “turbotax of project finance” that allows anyone to create, fund, build, and run their own local solar or climate solutions project. Raise Green is making it easier to open a solar array or a housing co-op in your neighborhood than a gas station or fast food joint.


You help build our techstack to match community-scale green infrastructure projects to investors throughout the U.S. Our Lead Engineer thrives on lack of precedence and adapts to the fast-changing nature of an early stage startup. Job skills and trust are paramount. You’ll have the space to operate and will do so with nearly complete creative license. We look forward to making space for you to create what you imagine is possible, desirable, and inspiring. Raise Green’s lead engineer will be a vanguard in tech charge against climate change — this is the defining decade. We have to make a difference.



  • 5-7+ years experience in programming, computer engineering, or software architecture
  • Backend Architecture - JS, Go, PostgreSQL, docker
  • Front End Architecture - React, Headless CMS (e.g. Storyblok)
  • Passion for social justice, sustainable finance, and the environment
