Job Description

About Us

Sunstone Credit (“Sunstone”) is on a mission to revolutionize commercial solar finance and energy transition finance.

 Sitting at the intersection of climate, finance and technology, Sunstone is opening the door to a previously underserved segment in the solar industry by offering financing solutions that help businesses save money and reduce their carbon footprint by going solar and owning their own systems.

 Founded in 2021 by successful serial founders, Sunstone has a strong backing from top VC firms and financial institutions that position our company for explosive growth in 2023 and beyond.

 We have partners and customers that are diverse, and we are building a team that reflects that.  Our team members can choose to work from either our Baltimore or NYC office, and every one of our colleagues shares in Sunstone’s success with meaningful equity ownership.

 Climate change is the greatest challenge humanity has ever faced.  We are doing our part to stop it.  This is not just a job, it’s a mission – true believers only.  Come join our team!
