About Sun Tribe TradingSun Tribe Trading is the fastest-growing SREC aggregator, serving the mid-Atlantic.
Solar Renewable Energy Certificates, or SRECs, have proven to be a vital policy tool and financial incentive to make the clean energy transition happen. SRECs simultaneously align individuals, utilities, and government toward reaching our climate goals while also making solar financially feasible for many more homeowners, business, and asset owners.

About the role
The position of Systems Engineer presents a unique opportunity for an engineer who wants to address climate change at the systems level. There are layers of exciting technical challenges in our space: the discovery, tracking, accounting, and exchange of value related to the production of renewable energy. The platform we’ve established needs the talents of a well-rounded engineer who can strategize, build, code, architect, analyze, and push what’s possible with modern technology.
More specifically, you’ll design and build software-based systems in a hybrid architecture comprising a conventional services backend and modern low-code application platforms. You’ll be responsible for the systems that underlie all areas of the business—one that is in the thick of scaling its operations. While you’ll be primarily focused on core infrastructure (business logic, database, process flows, integrations), you’ll stay very close to our web product and user experience. Our core low-code platforms include Bubble, Xano, Airtable, and Make. You’ll work closely with the software team to deliver functionality and advance operations. This is a critical role in our growing business—it’s fun, fast, challenging, and the rewards roll in daily!
