Vacancy – Head of Business Development Americas

SolarDuck is a fast-growing, Dutch-Norwegian cleantech company pioneering the technology to bring solar PV to the seas. The company (a spin-off of Damen Shipyards, a leading Dutch shipbuilder) was founded in 2018 by a team of experienced entrepreneurs from the maritime industry. SolarDuck is headquartered in the Netherlands and has presence in Japan and Norway.

Fueled by the vision to Electrify the World with Offshore Floating Solar to solve the problem of land scarcity, SolarDuck has developed a unique technology to bring solar PV, the fastest-growing source of renewable energy, offshore. In this way, enabling energy consumers across the sunbelt and beyond to access affordable, reliable and sustainable energy and providing energy independence as added benefit.

SolarDuck´s technology and organization are maturing rapidly. A year ago, the company launched its first demonstrator in the Netherlands. Later next year, SolarDuck will be launching a full-scale pilot in the North Sea, and the commercial team is already busy establishing strategic partnerships and developing SolarDuck´s first commercial, grid-scale projects.

Rapid growth requires a team which identifies with the company´s vision, gets energized by solving meaningful challenges and has the capacity to execute. If you feel this is a team for you, then we would like to get to know you!

As Head of Business Development Americas you will be responsible for developing SolarDuck´s footprint in the region. The role reports directly to our Chief Commercial Officer, integrating in the business development leadership team. You will be central to delivering on our ambitious growth plans by leading the regional business development efforts, and by building the commercial infrastructure of the company. For the right candidate, we are open to look at alternative locations to Oslo, e.g., the Netherlands. As the team is situated in Oslo, this would require some additional travel.

This is a versatile role, that will include a variety of tasks and evolve over time. You will have a unique opportunity to join a closely-knit team and shape the company´s strategy, your own role and create tangible impact in a very dynamic, future-oriented environment.
