🎯 Why we exist

We’re on a mission to improve the reliability, transparency, and efficiency of our energy systems, fostering a future with sustainable and abundant energy. To accomplish our aims, we’re leveraging state of the art statistical learning and convex optimization methods (AI) to build the financial rails of our future energy systems that will accelerate the deployment of clean energy resources.

We envision energy systems that are efficient, autonomous, resilient, and powered by 100% renewable energy.

🧗 Who we are

Our founders (ex-Apple, Bluevine; ex-Affirm, Square, Google) are Stanford alumni with experience in complex systems, machine learning and structured finance. Our world-class investors, Maverick Ventures and Caffeinated Capital, are aligned to our policy objectives and platform vision.

We're headquartered in New York City, with a flexible approach to remote work.

The Role

Comity is looking for a Strategic Finance Lead to chart the development path of our platform vision. In this role, you will

  • complete detailed financial analysis of energy market participants and platforms in order to consolidate our beliefs about value generation

  • define milestones, navigate regulatory relationships, and bring to market our financial platform with the optimal heading for scale

  • participate in financial planning processes (e.g. annual budgeting, capital markets) for our entire organization

As an early hire in this role, you’ll have broad impact over our path to scale.

We’re excited about you because

  • You have 8+ years experience in strategic finance, business operations, or corporate development in a fast-paced environment such as a high-growth tech company; investment banking; private equity.

  • Thrive under ambiguity: You enjoy synthesizing a significant number of information threads to a well-structured and defended plan.

  • Relentless: You aren’t discouraged by obstacles or the challenges of moving from 0 to 1.

  • Highly analytical: You have a keen sense for how to break ambiguous problems into 'knowable' components, and you're adept at quickly navigating analytical question and answer pairs which obtain with one another. You have proficiency with Python and one or more common analytical tools such as SQL, Tableau, etc.

  • Detail oriented: You have comfort and facility with the last few percent of accuracy, ensuring work products have zero defect.

  • An excellent communicator: As well as solving problems, you can communicate your thinking to various stakeholder audiences who may have divergent points-of-view.

  • Eager to learn: You are eager to learn and grow; you enjoy the pain of a steep learning curve.
