Fancy working for Google? It wouldn’t be a bad gig – the canteen’s legendary and you’d get all the free internet searches you want, although Greenbang would suggest holding out for some of those stock options and your own personal masseuse if she were you.
The search juggernaut, you see, is looking out for a new head of renewable energy engineering for its Mountain View campus (that’s the one with the canteen everyone is oddly obsessed with).
Google has a bit of an interest in all things renewable. It has its own philanthropic arm, Google.org, which goes around funding the likes of Brightsource, it’s also got big plans to make that canteen-wielding campus oh-so carbon neutral and it even wants to develop its own eco-fuel that’s cheaper than coal.
Fancy joining in? You’ll need a degree in engineering, 10 years’ experience and a bit of entrepreneurial flair.
Here’s what you’ll get in return:
As the engineering leader of Google’s alternative energy initiative, you will be responsible for building a team of team of top technologists with backgrounds in alternative energy to evaluate and develop various forms of renewable energy in order to reduce the cost of renewable electricity. Google’s goal is to have renewable energy as a major source of Google’s internal power needs within a reasonable time frame. We are looking for an accomplished entrepreneur with a strong technical foundation who can effectively work with the key stakeholders at Google in making this a reality.
• Build, lead and motivate a world-class team of alternative energy experts with diverse technical skill sets focused on reducing the cost of renewable energy.
• Develop technologies and systems that make breakthrough cost reductions compared with products currently available in the marketplace.
• Partner with cross-functional energy team leaders in engineering, business development, Google. org, real estate and business operations to conceptualize and implement Google’s renewable energy strategy.
• Evaluate energy trends in order to order effectively direct Google’s strategic technical direction in regards to renewable energy.
