Join Our Growing Team
Energy Circle is a nimble, dynamic team of smart, creative individuals who share a passion for the energy efficiency industry. We share a sense of mission for driving the industry in order to fix our country's buildings, improve our indoor environments, reduce our carbon emissions and minimize our reliance on dirty fuel sources. We're a small group but have a national reputation as a thought leader regarding how to massively expand our industry and, in turn, take on the global challenge of energy use in buildings.
Why Work Here?
The industry we're devoted to-- energy efficiency and renewable contracting-- is thriving. The drivers of our category - energy costs, climate change and the health and quality of the home environments-- are real and not going away (if you don't believe this, please don't apply). We offer cutting-edge marketing tools and services exclusively for this industry, and are helping to improve the business of hundreds of customers across the country.
The work atmosphere at Energy Circle is casual, laid-back and fun. We take the "human" principle seriously, and recognize that people have lives and interests outside the office. We also love our work and love to work hard. Sometimes it takes a sprint to get things done, but we're about sustainability and that applies to the workplace too. We like dogs, kids, coffee and getting together outside the office. We're a bunch of foodies, so team dinners are usually pretty tasty. Wiffle ball is usually involved.
Do you have to be an energy geek to work here? Short answer: No. Longer answer: We aim to bring the best expertise in internet marketing to bear on behalf of the better building community. So as long as you are resolutely passionate about your core expertise, whether it be web development or digital marketing, content production or SEO, you only need to be open to finding our founder's passion for renewable energy. Most of the people at Energy Circle have a larger sense of purpose about their role in the world, and the opportunity to do cutting edge internet work AND do so for the good of the world is... Well, in our view, just about the greatest job you could hope for.
We're extremely deliberate in our recruiting process. We want only the best candidates, so we're doing everything we can to make our compensation and benefits as good as the big, corporate bureaucracies. On that point, we despise bureaucracy and politics. This is a flat, open, transparent team structure where you'll have lots of autonomy as long as you are kicking ass. Did we mention that we get to do all this great work in the awesome region of Greater Portland, Maine?
Energy Circle is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and we strive to assemble a team of thoughtful, talented, and diverse employees who are invested in issues directly related to our mission, including environmental justice. We believe the more people with different backgrounds, cultures, perspectives, and experiences, the more successful our company will be, and we are always on the lookout for volunteer opportunities that support our mission in the surrounding community.
Energy Circle's office is located in the heart of downtown Portland on Congress Street. Our newly renovated office provides us with lots of space for the team to spread out and work together or quietly alone. With coffee shops and restaurants right outside, the choices for lunch and after work get-togethers are unlimited. It's an energetic and feel-good environment. Energy Circle's downtown Portland, ME office is equipped with high efficiency, state-of-the-art heating and cooling, with an independent ventilation system tuned to optimize indoor air quality and a healthy working environment. We continuously measure the indoor environment with a commercial grade, RESET-certified monitor, and make the data accessible to everyone. Since COVID, we have increased ventilation rates, added HEPA filtration and beefed up surface cleaning procedures. To date, we meet or exceed the "high performance" target for RESET's Commercial Interiors Standard. We will continue to follow guidance from health and safety authorities, with the goal of offering a choice of working environments that first and foremost prioritize the health and safety of our team.
