Early-Stage Climate Focused Startup Seeking REC Lead

Overview: GreenGrid, Inc., a new startup at the intersection of climate and blockchain, seeks a Renewable Energy Certificate Lead to oversee the company’s REC strategy and related relationships and input on REC product development.

Company: GreenGrid is creating a new market related to renewable energy production, leveraging blockchain technology and tokenization. The business is currently in an early stage, but based on a lot of feedback the idea is sound, the market is huge, and there are currently no other companies targeting the same niche. GreenGrid has a proof-of-concept underway, outsourced blockchain development is ongoing, a patent application has been filed, and hiring has begun.

In addition to its climate mission, the company is focused on social and economic impact. It is incorporated as a Delaware Public Benefits Corporation and will apply for B Corp status. Additionally, it is our goal to recruit a diverse senior leadership team focused on creating equal opportunity for those from all backgrounds and experiences. Climate change is a universal issue; we need a team that brings a diversity of perspectives and experiences to build the foundations and future of our company.

Founder & CEO: CEO has previously had a very successful exit in another industry, has served on numerous boards, and worked in private equity. He is a former U.S. Marine officer, a McKinsey alumnus, and is a graduate of Wharton, Harvard, and Georgetown. 

Ideal REC Lead:

  • Driven by the vision of building a company that will have a significant impact on climate
  • Motivated to create a business of significant scope and economic scale
  • Highly successful in previous endeavors
  • Deeply knowledgeable about RECs, possesses relationships in the REC space
  • Mission-driven, light-hearted, humble


  • Responsibilities
    • Input on REC-related product development
    • Build and lead strategy to maximize potential of RECs as a component of the business, including relationships with off-takers
    • Lead and grow team as needed
    • Work with CEO on various aspects of growing and scaling a new business
  • Time commitment: Initially full or part-time but the candidate must be willing and able to convert to full-time quickly as the business begins to gain traction.
  • Compensation: Significant equity and some cash compensation (to be discussed during initial conversations)
  • Location: Remote/virtual (CEO located in Greater Boston)
  • Title: To be discussed but something senior, since this will be a pivotal role in the company; candidate can help shape title and role based on background and preferences.


  • Strong solar REC experience
  • Minimum of several years of professional experience and/or a relevant advanced degree
  • Ability to start immediately and the flexibility to work with the CEO, putting in the effort necessary to move the business forward before transitioning to full-time

Potential roles possible for candidates with similar skill sets but earlier in their careers, so please feel free to apply! People with backgrounds which are traditionally underrepresented in the startup world are especially encouraged to apply. Military veterans are also strongly encouraged to apply.
