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 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, 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. The company’s leadership team embraces a fast-paced, entrepreneurial mindset to seize this unique opportunity in history and position Sunrun as an aspirational, beloved technology consumer brand for a faster, cleaner, safer, easier, more efficient home of the future.
As the Content Marketing Manager, you will be at the forefront of this new vision by developing and leading breakthrough brand communications and strategic creative content that build awareness, foster loyalty, drive conversion, and expand our brand footprint with our target audience. Your content will drive Sunrun brand affinity and ultimately help consumers understand more about clean energy, solar, Sunrun’s product offerings, and answer key questions they have along the customer journey. You will work closely across the marketing organization to design the content strategy, be hands-on in writing and developing assets, and align brand positioning, content, and marketing calendar to deploy meaningful communications.
The marketing team primarily works remotely, so this position can be located anywhere within the United States. Some travel will be required for in-person meetings and production initiatives. At Sunrun, we are passionately committed to our mission. We also nurture a collaborative and inclusive culture that welcomes diverse backgrounds and perspectives. The company provides generous compensation and benefits, including medical plans, 401k match, stock purchase plan, maternity and paternity leave, employee discounts, flexible schedules, flexible vacation, and much more.
The energy revolution is well underway. And our planet needs it now more than ever. Join us in the journey as we lead a crucial movement toward a planet run by the sun.
