Brightergy – Why Work For Us?

Brightergy empowers organizations, nonprofits, and government agencies to take control of their energy costs and usage through clean-energy generation, consumption, and management– an action that better enables them to manage cost and change. Brightergy is headquartered in Kansas City, with offices in Boston and St. Louis. With over 1,000 commercial rooftop installations, Brightergy is a leading commercial solar installer in the US. Brightergy serves commercial and tax-exempt organizations throughout the US with clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies and utilities to non-profits and mid-sized businesses.

We believe in a world where we can all thrive through energy independence. This means reimagining the way we generate, consume and manage energy today. Technology changes all the time. What made sense 100 years ago isn’t necessarily the best strategy for us today. This need will only continue to grow. In short, we can own our energy in a way we’ve never been able to before. It’s the makings of a new world, where energy is no longer a liability or an expense, but an asset - a world where people aren’t limited by their access or ties to the grid.

The Brightergy Way

  1. Simplify the Complex
  2. Challenge the Status Quo in Ourselves and in Our Community
  3. Work Harder as a Team
  4. Use Technology to Improve Efficiency and Accuracy

Simplify the Complex

We require invention and transformation of ourselves, and we seek to find ways to improve the process; to make the complicated, simpler.

Challenge the Status Quo in Ourselves and in Our Community

Embrace and encourage wild and new ideas, question old ways, and make change. We dare to be different, inside, outside, and all around our walls. We’ve made a commitment to each other and to something bigger than ourselves. We treat others with respect and act with togetherness. We cheer each other on. We are ardent team players, in our work and in our communities.

Work Harder as a Team

Be passionate. Be humble. Innovate, hustle, and persevere. Communicate clearly and collaborate effectively. We listen, talk, and ask questions; we speak, write, and share - and repeat. We make things happen - and then we keep building. Our success together is a byproduct of working harder together, and though we celebrate along the way, our work is never done.

Use Technology to Improve Efficiency and Accuracy

We use technology to make us better and to make our community better. We don’t shy away from the new. Rather, our data and technology make us more agile and more effective in the work that we do.


By joining Brightergy you can make great ideas happen in a dynamic and growing environment where challenging and interesting work is part of daily life.  We are on the forefront of a rapidly changing energy industry and love it! We move fast, yet execute well. We build things of quality and strive to simplify the complex. We challenge the status quo and embrace the disruptive spirit. We communicate with transparency and directness, both internally and externally. We are one team with a common vision. The vision never changes but our tactics regularly change.

Working at Brightergy means you’ll be working with colleagues who are bright, ambitious, and passionate about reimagining the world of energy. We look to hire people who are motivated self-starters with positive “can-do” attitudes, and who are looking for an opportunity to improve their professional career through hard work, creativity, and dedication.

    I have been working at Brightergy full-time


    Brightergy invests a lot in its employees and focuses on helping them grow professionally. Unlike most jobs I have had, Brightergy encourages you to challenge yourself to develop skills and talents you didn't know you could achieve. There's no better feeling than achieving something professionally that you thought was out of reach. The fact that you work in renewable energy and energy efficiency is a great bonus. It's a great feeling when you know you have made the world a better place at the end of the day.


    You will be challenged to think outside the box, and to stretch beyond what you have been trained to do. I look at this type of environment as a positive career motivator.

    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brightergy (Kansas City, MO).


    Submitted my resume to an employee's email I found on their website. At the time, their HR was useless, but it has gotten much better. Met with direct supervisor and discussed relevant skills and job requirements. Later talked on phone with CEO to discuss the same details. They were very accommodating to my schedule.
