Job Description

About Us

Euclid Power is a renewable energy software and services company that builds data management and workflow tools to help project developers and investors develop, diligence, execute, and asset-manage renewables projects. We believe it is time that the process of deploying renewable energy projects was powered by software, as much as social media or online ads.

Euclid is led by a world-class team of industry-leading veterans with development and investment experience on over 3GW of solar and 1GWh of energy storage projects. We previously created the diligence, investing, and execution process for some of the industry’s leading developers and investors including Goldman Sachs Renewable Power, Blackstone (Onyx), GE Solar, Generate Capital, and True Green Capital. We are seeking a product or UX/UI designer with proven experience designing web applications to work with us for the next 2-6 weeks as we design, and prototype, the MVP of our software platform.

Our company is committed to hiring talented team-members and freelancers who are hardworking, passionate, and committed to our mission. This hire will have a central role in shaping the design, feel, and experience of our software product. At Euclid, learning, growing, and testing the best ideas are central to our approach to solving one of the world’s most important challenges: climate change. 

Our Story

The story of Euclid begins 10 years ago when our co-founder, Ryan Guay, walked into the offices of his first job, at the largest solar installer in New York. The company’s entire 50-project pipeline was written on a whiteboard, with no general plan, tools, or processes in sight to manage the 1,000s of key data points necessary to diligence, build, execute, and finance these complex projects while communicating with dozens of key stakeholders. Over the next decade, Ryan and the rest of the founding team have witnessed firsthand the renewable power industry suffer from cost overruns, massive schedule delays, overlooked project risks, and many, many dead deals from the lack of data and process management. Euclid was founded to bring much-needed operational reprieve to the industry and finally get this process right. As the industry grows, our mission is to capture and track project data so that key players can develop, diligence, build, and finance their projects on time and on budget and, frankly, get more renewable energy deals done.

Who You Are

  • Full-time freelancer or currently-employed-and-looking-for-exciting-side-gig
  • Life-long learner and builder that is passionate about designing great software products to support the deployment of renewable energy projects
  • Experienced product designer that can create the design, feel, and flows of our web-based software product
  • Creative thinker that is excited by the opportunity to bring a new product to market that can eventually scale to serve hundreds of customers in the renewables space
  • Team-player that will collaborate with the founding team, product advisor, and software engineers to translate (and improve) our proven renewables diligence, execution, and data tools into a proprietary software environment
  • Self-starter that can take direction from product team and create numerous viable designs to test with early customers
  • Client-centric attitude, with an unsatisfiable desire to create the best possible experience for the end-user
  • Scrappy, open-minded, entrepreneurial thinker who can guide product decisions in a resource-limited environment and understand the benefits and trade-offs of the many different solutions available for a given problem

 

What You’ll Do

  • Contract arrangement for 4-6 weeks with potential for longer-term engagement based on success of initial deliverables and product
  • Work with founders and product team (product advisor and 2 full-stack software engineers) to take a batch of MVP features and feature description and wireframe potential designs for software application
  • Iterate wireframes based on feedback from product team and potential customers
  • Build high-fidelity mockups that can be used for prototyping and eventually given to software team for initial product build
  • Work closely with the founding team to learn and understand the process of renewable energy development, diligence, execution, investment, and asset management in order to build in necessary user flows
  • Aid in the aggregation of user feedback from prototyping/testing stage and conversion into actionable insights for the engineering team

Required Skills and Experience

  • 5+ years of UX/UI or Product Design experience in the software space (web-based enterprise software preferred)
  • Portfolio of previous design projects
  • Excellent at communicating design decisions and processes regardless of the audience – non-technical founders, PMs, engineers, other designers, etc.
  • Understanding of real customer problems; either partnered with research teams—or better yet, led research—to test, inform, and validate product / design thinking
  • Excellent skills in product design tools (Figma preferred, but Adobe XD, Sketch, etc. okay as well)
