Job Description

Lumen Energy is automating clean energy deployment.To start, we’re making getting a fully-financed clean energy system for a commercial building as easy as applying for a credit card. The scope of the opportunity is massive: out of 6 million commercial buildings in the US which are responsible for 16% of all greenhouse gas emissions, most of which could save money with solar, fewer than 4% have solar systems today.We make clean energy widely accessible by abstracting away the complexity of an underlying marketplace of installers, financiers and confusing electrical jargon. Our challenge is to parse massive datasets, deploy advanced models behind the scenes, pre-package financing, all so that we can deliver simple, delightful, and actionable offers to our customers.Once the decision has been made to go solar, we support our customers with software tools that help manage the processes of securing financing, evaluating bids and selecting a contractor and finally, managing a live solar deployment.Who We AreWe are a small team of scientists, engineers, designers and entrepreneurs committed to powering our world with clean energy. We build on experience at Stripe, Google X, Shopify, and US national labs. While we're early in our journey, we are live with customers, funded by exceptional investors (soon to be announced), and looking to bring on a core team member who can help us expand our impact. We are a remote-first company, but get together regularly in San Francisco and are looking for teammates who work within 3 time zones of Pacific Time.About YouYou are entrepreneurial, curious, resourceful, and humble. You like to experiment to find what lands most effectively with customers, using data to map the path. You are energized by creating something out of nothing. You're ready to take on a high level of responsibility as part of a small team that moves quickly.


  • Thread design across our entire experience: on the surface Lumen is simple, because the complexity automagically happens in the background (meaning by you and our team)
  • Design clear and intuitive UX solutions both online and offline, informed by experimentation, refined by data. You listen to users and partners, addressing spoken and latent needs into our products
  • Work cross functionally: you'll be working on UX and customer success on interviews, leaders on roadmap, marketing & product to drive adoption, and engineers on execution
  • Own the design system: execute design mockups while also helping define the design culture. This role will be flexible if you're interested in continuing to design or want to engage in people management


  • You are adaptable, autonomous, and can own new projects from start-to-finish
  • You are familiar with each of the design specializations—research, UX, UI, interaction, front-end engineering, brand, and have depth in one or two of them
  • At least 4 years of professional design experience

Why you might be excited about Lumen

  • We are working to solve a massive global challenge - powering our world with clean energy
  • We are small and nimble. You will have immediate responsibility over key areas of our product and experience
  • You will grow (and we will too by learning from you). We will help you do great work
  • We care deeply about your professional development and happiness, and we are committed to helping you prepare on your desired trajectory
  • We work hard, have fun, and care deeply about family, rest, recovery, and rejuvenation

We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace committed to building a team culture that celebrates diversity and inclusion.
