Senior Product Manager

Target Start Date: Ongoing
Reports To: EVP, Technology
Location: San Francisco, CA

Carbon Lighthouse is looking for an experienced Product Manager to drive the evolution of our software platform to increase our impact in our effort to stop climate change. We have taken the first step of transforming our data analysis and thermodynamics modeling toolset into a robust software platform, called CLUES®, built on the latest web technologies. In order to accelerate our impact on carbon reductions, we are looking to expand our platform and build new products that deliver tangible results for our internal and external stakeholders. As a member of our team you’ll learn all about energy efficiency, solar, real estate markets, construction, and probably get your hands dirty (or at least dusty) on-site visits.

Your role will concentrate on both improving CLUES and adding multiple new products to our software platform. This includes streamlining the flow of data from wireless sensors into CLUES as well as building out our automated analytics, modeling, and monitoring processes. You will also spend time interacting with Carbon Lighthouse mechanical engineers, data scientists, project managers, account managers, and marketing professionals to connect our software and its capabilities to our mission. These interactions require that you genuinely enjoy working on collaborative teams, and want to be involved in addressing large scale challenges that require long-term effort. 

As one of Carbon Lighthouse’s first Product Managers, you will have great ownership over the software strategy and outcomes, as well as help build the Product team within Carbon Lighthouse. Within this role there will be many growth opportunities for specialization, management, and leadership as our company expands. The role is based at our headquarters in downtown San Francisco, and will require occasional travel to our satellite offices or client sites across the country.
