Sunrun Retail Training Specialist-Southern CA in Los Angeles, California


Sunrun is seeking a dynamic, talented Trainer to help grow our leadership position in the fledgling Solar Services industry. The position is responsible delivering training in a variety of modes.

The position reports to the manager of Training, and must be proficient on all of Sunrun’s products and processes. A major audience for the training will be aspects of both internal and external sales organizations—from lead generators to inside sales reps, to sales consultants. Experience in sales and sales training is an absolute must.

This position within SunRun has the opportunity to change the way that people power their homes. Solar Services is a new, exciting industry that is moving solar systems (the kind on the roof, not the kind revolving around the sun) into the mainstream. You’ll be on the forefront of redefining how solar is perceived, and proliferating solar in the market.

Who We Are

Sunrun is on a mission to make solar energy affordable and ubiquitous. We help people upgrade their home to solar energy without the large upfront costs. Instead, we install our solar facilities on homeowners’ roofs, and sell them electricity that the systems produce. We guarantee electricity production; if anything breaks or needs repair, we fix it. We are very well funded, having raised ample corporate funds from Accel Partners and Sequoia Capital as well as over one billion dollars of project financing from US Bancorp and Credit Suisse, among others..
