Job Description

SPAN develops innovative technologies that support an electrified future and give homeowners unprecedented levels of control over their home energy usage.

The SPAN Panel—our flagship product—is a “smart” replacement for the 100-year-old electrical panel found in most homes, allowing for circuit-level monitoring and control from any iOS or Android device. When combined with solar and battery storage, our panel offers the best home backup solution available on the market.

SPAN Drive—our newest accessory—is the fastest universal EV charger currently available and a monumental achievement in the residential tech space.

The Role 

We are seeking an experienced construction project manager to manage direct to consumer deployments of SPAN products.  The role will be a combination of project management, customer service, and creative problem solving. In this role, you will work directly with both homeowners and installer partners to coordinate the customer's journey from sale to final inspection. You will cross-functionally collaborate with our sales, application engineering, electrician training, and finance teams to ensure that each customer and installation partner has an amazing experience.  This position can be located anywhere in the US as you will be working from your home office.

While this role will require significant cross-functional coordination, the ideal candidate is comfortable working autonomously in a fast-paced environment, and can consistently deliver high quality work. This person is interested in helping to build and implement processes that will continuously improve upon our deployment strategy.

  • Develop strong relationships with installer partners that build upon trust, professionalism, quality workmanship, and an exceptional customer experience
  • Negotiate pricing, change orders, and volume of jobs with installers as needed

Continuously improve SPAN's deployments and deployment strategy

  • Problem solve unique situations as they arise, create best-practices documentation as needed
  • Assess, understand, and communicate operational and customer experience hurdles to leadership and internal stakeholders
  • Improve efficiency and customer experience by identifying and implementing process improvements
