About us 👋
Hello! We are Samara, the solar installation startup that goes beyond self-consumption. We are here to accelerate the energy transition of households towards a more efficient, smarter and more sustainable model.
We are a high-growth startup that, above all, prioritizes people and the planet. We have the support of investors such as Seaya and Pelion Green Future and our team is constantly growing. Therefore, we are looking to expand our commercial team with several Sales Executive positions.
In line with our values, at Samara we firmly believe that the climate crisis is the biggest challenge facing our generation. Housing, in particular, is one of the main sources of carbon emissions in developed countries. We are optimistic by nature and think it is possible to do things differently: one that combines electrification, distributed generation, energy storage and software that enables more efficient energy management.
As you can see, we have a lot of work ahead of us, are you in?
What are you going to do? 🌱
You will be part of the initial Sales team, and you will be the first point of contact with potential Samara customers and responsible for converting them into happy customers. These will be some of your duties:
Help customers understand which Samara products and services are most beneficial for their specific case. At this stage we offer solar panels, batteries and electric chargers, but it is just the beginning.
Build the installation simulations using our software, create the proposal and present it to the customer.
Make a personalized follow-up during the whole process, from the first contact to the signing of the contract, being the point of reference and trust for the customer at all times.
Coordinate with the Energy Managers to ensure that, once the contract is signed, the customer experience is perfect.
Provide constant feedback to the team of Sales Executives and Energy Managers.
Create strong links with the rest of the team to ensure that Samara works as one team.
Help build a unique company-wide culture as we redefine the energy industry forever.

We want you to know that you have a place at Samara, wherever you come from and whoever you are.
