  • Account Executive

    Portland, OR

    Scope of Position:

     

    The Powin Energy Account Executive (AE) is a quota-carrying, direct sales role that is assigned a portfolio of customers for whom they must manage all current and future opportunities. Powin’s success will be determined by repeat sales, and the AE has the critical role of nurturing these relationships to produce dramatic growth of the company’s backlog. The sale of Powin products and services is a long-term sale, therefore the AE must be an exemplary relationship manager, always being mindful of the goals and aspirations of the customer.

    The AE has a diverse skill set that elegantly balances sales hunger with market insight, technical knowledge, and elite deal-making skills. Customers rely on the AE to be savvy across all topics in the stationary storage space, so, though there is significant technical sales support at Powin, the AE must remain on top of myriad different applications of stationary storage technologies in general, and Powin products, specifically. That knowledge must include basic understanding of power electronics, electrical site design, and a directional sense of cost impactors for each.

    The stationary storage market is young and evolving quickly, so the AE is frequently forward-selling products and applications that may have never been applied before in a commercial setting. Though Powin’s baseline products are tried and true technologies, most projects that the Powin products will be deployed in have significant customization for a given site and customer. The AE must be an effective contributor to the customer’s project team in the pre-contract phase, and remain in frequent, constructive contact with her/his point of contact throughout the project to ensure that the customer experience is best in class.

    The AE underpins all of the preceding expertise by being highly organized with a strong baseline understanding of project finance and a deep quant comfort in finance modeling, contributing to the customer’s goal of achieving a highly profitable project. Though supported by a back office team that provides procurement, contract and technical support, the AE quarterbacks the sale and has robust leadership and internal team-building skills. The AE has a deep interest in energy market trends, energy storage and grid services economics, and startup cultures, which fuels him/her to secure successful bid responses and sales. Lastly, the AE has an extremely high standard for work product and the customer experience overall; she/he has zero tolerance for less than top quality work reaching her/his customer.

    Responsibilities:

    A summary of the core functions of this role is:

    • value advantages of different products and system design approaches
    • serve as primary relationship manager for a large portfolio of Powin’s blue-chip customers;
    • relentlessly drive direct sales within portfolio, while always ensuring that the long-term customer relationship is solid to support repeat sales;
    • quarterback formal responses to utility, C&I and institutional RFOs;
    • lead formal responses to RFPs issued by third party In Front of the Meter (IFM), Behind the Meter (BTM), solar plus storage and microgrid developers;
    • conduct direct sales and PR calls with charisma, competency and passion;
    • manage teams in creating proforma modeling of individual projects and business opportunities;
    • serve as renewables, distributed resources, energy markets and energy storage industry expert;
    • enthusiastically provide voice of customer feedback to the product management team; and
    • track changes in the energy storage policy landscape and contribute that knowledge to overall business development strategy.

    The ideal candidate (Candidate) has over three (3) years demonstrated experience meeting and exceeding a sales quota or business development expectation in the distributed energy or power electronics space.
