Job Description



Software Engineer, Raise Green, Inc. (Remote)



Raise Green is the marketplace for local impact investment. We are a 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 for 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 anyone to access and benefit from climate resilient local infrastructure.



Our Software Engineer is dedicated to fighting income inequality, air pollution, and climate change. You will be managing our Website, Marketplace, and 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.


Our Software Engineer develops information systems by designing, developing, and installing software solutions for green infrastructure projects. Our Software 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. Raise Green’s Software Engineer will be a vanguard in the tech charge against climate change — this is the defining decade. We have to make a difference.
