Posted on Wednesday, March 22, 2023
BlocPower is a clean energy leader creating smarter, greener, healthier buildings for all by reducing the barriers to money-saving, quality-of-life-improving green building upgrade. We provide engineering, financing and project implementation services for our clients, with a special focus in historically left out communities across the country. These communities, and their buildings, are underserved by traditional energy services companies because they are considered too small, too costly, or too risky. Our portfolio of projects include houses of worship, schools, non-profits, small businesses and multifamily buildings. Through our work, we save our clients money, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve health and create local employment opportunities.
At BlocPower, we value our mission. We are trusted advisors that get things done for our customers by using data to make the right decisions. We support and expect excellence from our team members. We treat both our customers and ourselves with care and respect.
As our work is centered around systematically disenfranchised communities – including people of color, people from working class backgrounds, women and LGBTQ people – we strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or who are members of other marginalized communities.
We are seeking an experienced Environmental and Social Impact Specialist to join our team. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in energy efficiency and electrification projects and be able to identify potential environmental and social impacts. In this role, you will be responsible for conducting environmental and social impact assessments, developing Measurement and Verification plans, and preparing impact assessment reports. You will also be responsible for maintaining knowledge of relevant environmental and social legislation and regulations and providing guidance and support to project teams. Additionally, you will collaborate with other departments to ensure that environmental and social impacts are considered in all aspects of the project and oversee project performance post-construction. Finally, you will support the customer success team after project completion to address any issues related to project performance.
This is a unique opportunity to work in a fast-paced, mission-driven organization. We offer a flexible work environment, though we are working remotely for the foreseeable future. We offer competitive compensation, a comprehensive benefits package, and an opportunity to learn and grow in a cutting-edge environment.
