Dandelion is hiring a Director of Accounting to join our team. We are looking for a thoughtful and strategic accounting leader with a hands-on approach for day to day financial operations, a strong track record of establishing/integrating new processes and systems, and a passion for motivating and developing people. As a key member of the team, you will oversee all aspects of financial accounting, treasury, audits, and compliance. You will also work closely with other leaders and teams across the company to design, implement, and manage policies and procedures related to month-end close, revenue recognition, A/P, A/R, payroll, and other accounting operations using modern processes and tools. This is an opportunity to play an influential role at a Series B renewable technology company backed by leading investors like Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Google Ventures, Comcast Ventures, NEA, and Lennar. Our commitment to you is to continue to thoughtfully grow people and careers in a values and results-driven work environment at Dandelion.
What you’ll do
You’ll love working at Dandelion because:
We’re solving the world’s hardest problems. You’ll have the opportunity to pioneer renewable heating and cooling from the ground-up (literally). There’s no established playbook for fighting climate change, so your work will be messy, challenging, and build a better, cleaner world.
We’re good people. It sounds simple, and it is. We are passionate, vision-driven, low-ego, and treat one another with kindness and respect. We challenge ideas here, not people.
We hold each other accountable. We celebrate our wins and learn from our losses. We’re honest, realistic, and transparent across all areas of the business, every day -- not just at our weekly all-hands meeting.
Home geothermal technology was developed over half a century ago but has failed to reach widespread adoption despite being, on average, 48% more efficient than furnaces using gas, and 75% more efficient than furnaces using oil. While many HVAC companies sell geothermal heat pumps, they may only install a handful of custom systems each year, leaving them with little opportunity to develop or refine the specialized skill set required to enable peak system performance, let alone identify and manage inefficiencies at scale.
That’s where Dandelion Geothermal comes in. Dandelion, formerly incubated at Google’s X Lab, is on a mission to make geothermal heating and cooling affordable for homeowners by creating a totally streamlined process from start to finish. Dandelion now operates out of New York City and Upstate New York. We raised $23MM from leading investors including BEV (Breakthrough Energy Ventures) GV (formerly Google Ventures), and Comcast Ventures, with participation from Lennar Corporation (NYSE: LEN and LENB), as well as prior investors NEA, Collaborative Fund, and Ground Up.
