Job Summary

GreenlightPlanet is owned and operated by engineers, sales force experts,and operations gurus who love to solve difficult problems that change ourcustomers’ lives before our eyes. Our offices across the world are culturalmelting pots of technological and grass-roots innovation.

Greenlight Planet is a for-profit social business thatdesigns, distributes, and finances solar home energy with an under-served populationin mind: the 1.2 billion global consumers for whom theold-fashioned electrical grid is unavailable or too expensive.  Sinceits founding in 2009, the company has become a leading global provider ofsolar-energy products to over 60 million rural consumers in more than 65countries.

From its wide range of trusted Sun King™ solar lamps andhome energy systems, to its innovative distribution partnerships, to itsflexible EasyBuy™ pay-as-you-go financing model, Greenlight Planet continuouslystrives to meet the evolving needs of the off-grid market.

A truly global enterprise, Greenlight Planet has 11offices in countries throughout Africa and India, and over 1,200 employeesaround the world.  Its team of more than 5,500 sales agents keeps thecompany directly in touch with rural consumers’ needs.  ButGreenlight works with a vast international network of 300 distributionpartners, from large micro-finance institutions to local micro-entrepreneurs,expanding the reach of solar energy products.  With over ten years ofexperience, Greenlight Planet is determined to continue setting the goldstandard for performance and design, while powering human potential.

Greenlight Planet was founded by T. Patrick Walsh, aUniversity of Illinois student who spent part of 2005 working with the charityEngineers Without Borders in rural India.  He realized that villagersthere, users of ubiquitous kerosene lamps, were not asking for charity. Rather, they were savvy consumers demanding a better product to light theirhomes.  With classmates from school, Patrick designed andsold Greenlight’s first solar-lantern prototypes in 2006 in the state ofOrissa: brighter and healthier than kerosene lamps, but affordable enough sothat people could afford them without subsidies.  In 2007,co-founders Mayank Sekhsaria and Anish Thakkar joined the fledglingcompany.  The founders moved to India and China in 2008, with thevision that smart design, efficient engineering and innovative distributionstrategies could make dirty kerosene lanterns a thing of the past.

Over a decade, the company has grown steadily,expanding distribution across South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, andestablishing financing programs to make solar energy affordable:  not onlyover the long term, but immediately, even for consumers with limited savings.

As solar technology and battery technology became moreefficient over the years, Greenlight Planet began setting its sightshigher, beyond simply replacing kerosene lamps:  The company’s solar homesystems now reduce demand for grid electricity, powering not only lights,but a range of home appliances including mobile phones, televisions, fans, andmore.
