We’re PVPower, a solar energy company based in Chicago. We’re a small
team working hard to get more solar panels onto more roofs. We’re
revenue generating, funded, and we’re growing.
We’re looking to fill our Web Designer position. To us, that
encompasses a lot: from design to development, and all hands-on. We’re
hoping to find a talented overachiever who wants to join the team and
take ownership and pride in:
  • Visual design
  • User experience
  • User interface
  • Some of the front-end development
All for our core products, the solar project planning app SolarBear and our e-commerce store.
We’d also like you to help with additional marketing and promotional
materials such as t-shirts, sales materials, packaging and more.
We think it’s a great job with opportunity to grow and as much
responsibility as you can take on. It’s worth mentioning that you’ll
have plenty of support, including a creative project manager and a team
of Ruby on Rails Engineers already in-place.
Our ideal candidate has portfolio of great projects and can easily
transition from wireframes & comps to HTML & CSS. If you worked
with Rails and/or Javascript, that’s a plus too.
If this sounds like you, we hope you’ll say hello. Please send us your
portfolio, resume and the top 5 things you’re looking for in a great
job. We’d also love to hear about what sites you think have noteworthy
design, usability and marketing around them.
Thanks for your interest!?

A few more things about PVPower: ?
PVPower opened for business in early ’09. Since then we’ve sold over a
million dollars in solar components. Our office is a big and bright loft
on the north side along the Ravenswood corridor. We are an Excelerate Labs company — class of 2010 and have a strong network of mentors and investors.
And we’re big fans of:
  • Learning new things
  • Wearing many hats (and plenty of wool ones this time of year)
  • Solving problems and others who do this well
  • Making a difference and, if we’re lucky, the world just a tiny bit better
  • Solar panels, in 10 years they’ll be everywhere

To apply: Send a link to your portfolio and resume to nick@pvpower.com
