Clean Energy for everyone.

Welcome to zolar! We’re on a mission to make solar power accessible to everyone and are proud to enable our customers to use the power of the sun in their own homes while making an active contribution to climate protection.

At zolar, we know that different people are successful in different ways, which is why we offer a hybrid working environment, meaning you can decide how much time you spend in our Berlin office, or how much time you spend working from home.
We strive for sustainability, we are ambitious, honest, and transparent, and we never want to stop learning or growing.

Will you join us in working towards a greener future for everyone?

  • Your experience in project management, particularly for a digital, consumer finance, or solar product, is evident in your successful track record.

  • Your structured approach is complemented by the ability to drive cross-departmental projects, align various functions, and steer multi-stakeholder teams effectively.

  • Your mindset is characterized by a strong business and solution orientation, adaptability, pragmatism, drive, and autonomy.

  • As a team player, you excel in both verbal and written communication, demonstrating excellent language skills in English (professional proficiency in German is preferred).
