About the market
More than 500m USD addressable market is to be found in Kenya and Uganda, among corporate entities that could benefit from solar power in its multiple incarnations.
In these countries, where the grid connection is unreliable and expensive, or gensets are considered a good alternative, there is huge potential to use solar power instead to provide economic and financial benefits to those entities. However, awareness of these options and the willingness to invest in them is still scarce.
To tackle this, SolarNow sells quality solar products and suitable appliances ranging from small household systems capable of powering lights, radios, phones, TVs and/or fridge(s) to much larger systems suitable for offices, schools, and machinery. Increasingly SolarNow is also catering to the needs of (off-grid) farmers by providing irrigation solutions and to larger corporate entities like manufacturing halls, offices, malls, professional farmers, the hospitality industry, and similar.
SolarNow provides credit and service that allows customers to spread payments over 24 months and receive service for 5 years. The company has over 1,000 employees and a network of 50 branches in Uganda and 15 branches in Western Kenya.
You are someone who cares deeply about improving livelihoods in Africa, but you bring more than passion to the role: you have the grit and resilience to make change happen. You are excited about understanding this nascent industry, the SolarNow products, its unique value proposition and the difference they make.
You have a successful track record in bringing products to corporate markets and are a dynamic problem-solver who has strong empathy and passion for solar power and the people you work with. You are the person who represents the client in the organisation but is at the same time the number one advocate of the product and value proposition.
You are curious and do not fear to challenge the status quo, but are sensitive in how to communicate this. You build strong and effective bridges within the organisation to achieve real results. You are not afraid to fail and see it as an opportunity to learn!
You bring with you the skills and behaviour that is needed to tackle a smart, knowledgeable, critical market that is used to dealing with larger numbers and sees things through an economic lens. You stand your ground and do not give up when faced with hardship and pushback, because you know that in the end you will make a positive impact on this planet.
