Help us create maximum climate impact on a global scale

The climate enemy #1 is CO2, primarily caused by fossil fuel energy production. At Bright Sunday we dream of a sustainable planet with 100% renewable energy. Our objective is to reduce all barriers for companies to produce their own renewable electricity and reduce their energy consumption.

We offer commercial customers ”cleantech as a service”, primarily through an operating lease of solar PV systems. This makes it easy, risk-free and profitable to make the transition to a more sustainable future.

Bright Sunday is in a rapid scale-up phase. Currently we are active in Portugal and Spain where the objective is to deploy MEUR 250+ of cleantech solutions the coming four years. However, our ambition is global and our ultimate goal is to replace 1% of global CO2 caused by production of electricity. To reach this vision we need to grow 500 times our forecast for the coming four years.

We look for a high-potential, language-savvy Communication Manager with an international profile who shares our passion for business growth and climate impact. Most likely you have already acquired a set of professional experiences but now want a more senior, but still hands-on, role in a scale-up company where you will have full responsibility and backing to use all your creativity and skills to create world-leading communication in an area of passion for you. You will report to the CEO.
