About David Energy

David Energy is creating a new kind of power company. Traditional Retail Electricity Providers (REPs) are outdated, opaque, and painful for customers to engage with. We use software to monitor our customers’ real-time energy usage, and we aggregate and analyze that data to maximize the value they get from their energy assets – batteries, EVs, HVAC systems and other distributed energy resources (DERs) via participation in energy markets. Our mission is to give energy customers greater transparency and control while creating a cheaper, cleaner, more reliable electricity grid.

About the Role

We are looking to bring onboard a VP of Sales & Partnerships to drive the strategy and execution of our go-to-market (GTM) engine and help lead David Energy through the next phase of growth. Our ideal candidate is a B2B-sales oriented growth leader that can design, build, and run the GTM org in a fast growing, first-of-its-kind business that is re-defining the power sector.

As VP of Sales & Partnerships, you will report directly to our CEO and grow the business hand in hand with him. You will be responsible for developing and executing on the vision set by the CEO, driving a culture of excellence in the growth org, and meeting and exceeding all revenue goals in the B2B business line.

Day to day, you will be responsible for overseeing GTM strategy, sales, sales ops, and partnerships. To be successful in this role you will need to obsessively understand the customer and how they buy and engage with our product; roll up your sleeves to implement new sales strategies and tactics; deeply engage with the math and operations behind the business; successfully navigate the trade offs between growth and profitability; and be a recruiting machine.

Prior experience in electricity markets is not required. However, we are looking for candidates with a demonstrated track record in software businesses in complex industries who are deeply passionate about accelerating the transition to a renewable and robust power grid of the future.
