What you’ll do day-to-day

On the Treasury side, you’ll be responsible for coordinating and administering various cash payments and receipts on the company's 40-plus solar and wind projects, and financing and corporate entities, while ensuring the adequacy of funds at all times. You’ll work with various stakeholders, including bankers, investors, senior management, asset managers, and accounting to ensure that the cash side of the business is functioning efficiently, while continuously developing and implementing process improvements. You’ll also be responsible for preparing periodic reports for the financing parties and senior management.
Depending on individual abilities and business needs, you will also be involved in other areas of corporate finance such as working with lenders, investors, counsel, and senior management on initiation, modeling, due diligence, closing, and ongoing compliance with corporate financing facilities.
