Dividend Finance - financing residential Solar Installations and other home improvement projects

Dividend Finance
Dividend provides financing solutions for renewable energy and energy-efficient projects for U.S. based homeowners. We work with a network of solar installers and home improvement contractors to provide financing.

Dividend Finance has open positions for mid/senior Clojure/Clojurescript developers to help build web applications and APIs used by our solar installers and employees.

Our stack includes a Clojure web app deployed on Heroku with Clojurescript and Postgresql. We have a small team (~10 devs), so you will have a big impact and get the opportunity to wear a lot of hats including (code implementation, architecture, product features, UX design, development lifecycle, testing). You will be responsible for influencing our tools and processes in addition to delivering features.

Our mission is to maximize solar energy usage with a frictionless financing process. We have over 1000 installers signed up and have financed 45,000+ installations.

The ideal candidate can not only write code, but has a proven track record of working with product to turn ideas into designs and work with the team to implement and deploy them as well as provide feedback on designs and implementations of others.

We have an office in San Francisco located on California @ Sansome, close to Montgomery BART, most developers have always been remote, but SF Bay Area based developers have been working remotely since the start of the pandemic.

You would join a team of 10 developers spread across 4 timezones (all permanently remote now) that is split in to 4 scrum teams. Our development process is very collaborative with our product team along with the other developers, so communication skills are important. Successful developers are eager to learn the business domain and have a hand in the design and implementation of features, not just programming to a specification.

The interview process consists of four 1 hour interviews (all through video) with members of our technology and product teams. One interview will have some small technical problems, but it is open note with your REPL running.

Unfortunately we are limited to candidates that are authorized to work in the U.S.

How is this sustainability-oriented?

Fossil fuels cause more carbon dioxide to be released into our atmosphere, causing global warming. Solar power is clean. Yes, carbon is emitted during the manufacturing of the panels and transporting them to the installation, but it is still a big savings over the 25 year life of the panels. Other home improvement projects like roofing, HVAC heat pumps, and windows make our homes more energy efficient reducing the amount of energy used to keep the home comfortable.

Most folks do not have the cash on hand to pay for a solar installation or all new energy efficient double pane windows, and Dividend can help people start reducing fossil fuel usage today rather than in the future.
