Job Details

At Vivint Solar, we’re changing the way people generate and consume power. We believe that people should have a choice between using outdated, dirty technologies and using innovative, clean solutions to produce the energy they use to live every day. That’s why we’re making it easy for millions of people nationwide to choose to go solar. Simply stated, we’re doing work that really makes a difference.


To undertake such a huge task, we need a Human Capital Director who understands more than how to get along with people. This person must be an operator, know how to build teams, how to implement and drive processes, and be a trusted advisor to the business. We want someone who can bring experience to the table, while thinking outside of the box. We are driven by data and the people we support. The Manager must have an analytical brain, with the ability to understand process and driving efficiencies.  This role also requires someone who works with the senior executive team to design the optimal organization, to streamline and make more efficient decisions related to people and staffing, and works to put in place other HR resources to help recruiting, compensation management, and performance management occur.  Vivint Solar is fast moving and rapidly changing organization. You must be adaptable to change, not thrown off by change in direction, and able to get results quickly. This is not an organization for someone who requires significant planning and who does not thrive in ambiguity.

They will handle performance/talent management strategy, organization effectiveness/efficiency, compensation management, and creating optimal human capital infrastructure within their assigned organizations.
