Manager, Financial Analytics and Forecasting
As a rapidly growing company with complex and unique financing partnerships, Sunrun transacts significant amounts of cash across multiple entities on a weekly basis. We pay milestones to our channel partners, and project cash flows from the fund, pay dividends to our financing partners, monetize solar energy renewable credits, and engage in a variety of financing initiatives to maximize value for our investors. Forecasting the detailed outcome of all these activities is an extremely detailed undertaking – and one that is central to the company’s success.

Reporting to the Director of FP&A in San Francisco, the Manager Financial Analytics and Forecasting serves a pivotal role in financial planning and decision support, and works closely with multiple departments (including project finance, pricing, sales, and ops) to collect all inputs and drive the iterative and complex cash model for the company. The position is highly visible within the organization and will drive Board-level modeling and reporting, as well as ownership of the company’s overall corporate model used to provide external investor forecasts. The right individual in this role will be familiar with complex financial transactions, be comfortable driving large and extremely detail-oriented modeling analysis, and work effectively with multiple stakeholders.

Who We Are
Sunrun’s mission is to make solar energy affordable for more people. We help people move their home to solar energy without the big upfront costs. Instead, we use a variety of project finance structures to purchase solar facilities for our homeowners and sell them electricity under long-term contracts. We are the leader in our field, and we are looking for high performers to join our team and help us scale as we grow across thousands of households across over ten states and increase our financing partnerships with some of the largest financial institutions
