Job Description

Manager, Total Rewards & People Analytics


Location:  San Francisco Bay Area, although you may be performing the bulk of your work remotely during the next few months

Position Mission:  Generate Capital is hiring a Manager, Total Rewards & People Analytics to support the People & Culture Team in driving thoughtful structuring and analysis around our compensation, benefits, equity incentives as well as our broader people data. The mission of this role is to support our people and total rewards practices by designing and driving creative solutions allowing us to leverage our rich people data, ensuring our compensation and benefits programs are competitive with the market, aligned with talent, and maintaining simplicity through it all.



Generate Capital has emerged as a leader in the high-growth sustainable infrastructure market, having built a highly differentiated investment and operating platform with a track record of strong risk-adjusted returns and significant, long-term institutional investor support.  Our investment platform represents the only one-stop shop for pioneers of the Resource Revolution.  Our infrastructure business wins by delivering the most affordable, reliable and sustainable resources to customers.

The last several decades have ushered in a dramatic rise in demand for natural resources like energy, water, food, and materials. The “Resource Revolution” is about doing more with less of our natural resources, a fundamentally economic proposition proving that sustainability pays.  We believe that we can solve the world’s most pressing resource issues, not by reinventing the world, but by rebuilding it.  While some focus on finding new and revolutionary tools, we rebuild resource systems with the high-impact, economic, and proven solutions we have today.  As a result, customers, communities, innovators, developers, capital partners and the planet all win.

Up until now, new energy asset finance (a $300B annual market) has been dominated by larger-scale projects that tend to attract traditional capital sources. Generate Capital, on the other hand, is focused on being a capital partner to pioneering project developers and solution providers that are typically overlooked by traditional financiers for a variety of reasons: asset size, underwriting complexity, project duration and perceived risk. As a long-term investor with truly permanent capital, Generate Capital is the only credible long-term partner for these pioneers, and the best infrastructure provider for these resource customers.

With a $10B pipeline of projects, completed transactions totaling over $2.5B and a utility-like, pay as you go model (which we call Infrastructure-as-a-ServiceTM), Generate Capital has quickly established itself as a leader in the enormous markets of distributed energy, mobility, water and waste management.


What you can expect from us:

  • The ability to truly “do well by doing good”; indeed, we really are changing the world
  • An opportunity to help build a cutting edge, values-driven organization that is leading the Resource Revolution and redefining the economics of distributed, sustainable infrastructure
  • The integration of our values – integrity, collaboration, excellence, intellectual honesty, and accountability – at all levels and with our many stakeholders
  • An opportunity for entrepreneurship and leadership in building out and managing the company’s operational infrastructure and the teams to support it
  • A commitment to your professional development, ongoing learning opportunities, and overall growth as a person
  • The ability to work with a team with decades of collective experience financing and managing billions of dollars of sustainable infrastructure, leading successful startups, and growing great people
  • Competitive pay and benefits

This person understands the value of strong processes and will enthusiastically familiarize oneself with the infrastructure of our business as they build and manage our compensation framework.
