Who We Are

Arcadia is the technology company empowering energy innovators and consumers to fight the climate crisis. Our software and APIs are revolutionizing an industry held back by outdated systems and institutions by creating unprecedented access to the data and clean energy needed to make a decarbonized energy grid possible.

In 2014, Arcadia set out on its mission to break the fossil fuel monopoly and since then we have been knocking down the institutional barriers to unlock decarbonization. To date, we have connected hundreds of thousands of consumers and small businesses with high-quality clean energy options. Fast forward to today, and now, we’re thinking even bigger. We have launched Arc, an industry-defining SaaS platform that empowers developers and energy innovators to deliver their own custom, personalized energy experiences, accelerating the transformation of the industry from an analog energy system into a digitized information network.

Tackling one of the world’s biggest challenges requires out-of-the-box thinking & diverse perspectives. We’re building a team of individuals from different backgrounds, industries, & educational experiences. If you share our passion for ushering in the era of the clean electron, we look forward to learning what you would uniquely bring to Arcadia!

What we’re looking for:

We’re looking to expand our Customer Experience and we’re looking to hire a Team Lead. A Lead is a senior member of the CX team and is responsible for ensuring that Arcadia’s Community Solar customers receive premier support. The Team Lead is also responsible for managing a team remotely across several time zones. Arcadia puts their customers first and is looking for a Lead that reciprocates this mentality and embodies our Core Values. We’re looking for a Lead that is self-motivated, data-driven and highly creative when it comes to ensuring customer satisfaction. This person should also have a solid understanding of OKRs, data reporting/analyzing and needs to be an excellent communicator.
