Working at
Glint Solar

Glint Solar is accelerating the adoption of solar energy by building the world's leading solar screening and analysis software. One of the main headaches for the development of large scale solar is identifying where to build and understanding the specific site conditions - we're tackling this! The world needs to build more renewable energy to combat climate change. We in Glint Solar believe that technology is the solution. We are therefore working effortlessly on building technology for developers of solar energy parks. We started with the very exciting floating solar market as this is one of the fastest growing energy sectors in the world and have since expanded into land based solar as well. We're backed by leading Norwegian and international VCs and private equity. Our HQ is at Mesh Nationaltheatret in Oslo where our international team works from, but we serve our global customer base with a focus on Europe. Some of our interesting customers include TotalEnergies, Alight and Statkraft. We have the culture of a startup with a flat hierarchy, where the idea matters, not who had it. We encourage trying new things, even if it fails. At Glint Solar you will have the freedom to do your best work – and focus your efforts on what *you* are good at. We believe in adapting to our people and their strengths – not the other way around. We back each other up, make sure obstacles are out of the way, and then we GO! And sometimes, quite often, actually, we go do something fun together, like cabin trips, company trips and social events. All with lots of laughter. We consider ourselves very privileged to have smart, curious, and caring colleagues who are working together towards our mission. We are comprised of 17 different people with nine different nationalities and a wide range of diversity of thought. Amongst us you’ll find coffee connoisseurs, map nerds, Mandarin speakers, yoga enthusiasts, foodies, cross-country skiiers, olive farmers, frisbee golfers, colleagues who DJ on the weekend and everything in between – because we value exactly who YOU are. Regardless of what you enjoy and value outside of work, there’s a place for you in Glint Solar.
