Everything we do at Sunrun is driven by a determination to transform the way we power our lives. We know that starts at the individual employee level. We strive to foster an environment you can thrive in through our commitment to diversity, inclusion and belonging.


A renewable energy revolution is beginning to blossom into the world’s largest industrial transformation since the personal computer.  The aging and vulnerable electrical grid is rapidly being supplemented and replaced by rooftop solar and rechargeable batteries.  That evolution is about to explode as drivers flock to EVs and fuel those cars with electricity from home, leaving gas stations a relic of the past and spiking demand for sustainable, reliable, and affordable electricity.  Sunrun is in the driver’s seat to lead this energy revolution as America’s leading residential solar and renewable energy provider, and is leading the change through modernizing and re-imagining the future of home electrification. We are looking for skilled individuals to help us drive this transformation with an entrepreneurial and customer first spirit helping cement Sunrun as the leader of the revolution.
