Job Description


The Director of Commercial will support and drive technology commercialization and business model development for Malta’s pumped heat energy storage solutions. Reporting directly to the VP Commercialization, you will have broad responsibility to support the planning and execution of product strategies, market engagement, project development and finance, and strategic partnering. Malta intends to both develop projects and sell our technology directly to customers: you will actively pursue and execute on both types of market access for our technology. You are an exceptionally smart, positive-energy professional with a passionate urgency for helping us move the dial on climate change reduction. You are also wicked good with numbers, write persuasively with ease, can comfortably discuss energy topics at the C-level, and can thrive while executing long sales engagements with utilities, IPPs, and industrial customers. You understand that a young company like Malta has changing needs and are willing to be flexible, to wear multiple hats, support multiple functions, and change with the organization.  You will spend much of your time engaging with customers to position Malta’s technology as an attractive solution to their pain points, working with Malta’s commercial partner organizations to broaden our customer funnel, creatively developing projects and delivering Malta systems to the market.

We are a growing but small team so everyone carries their weight. You will need to own and be fluent with project documentation and financial models, but also be able to manage senior consultants, technical and commercial partners, and internal collaborators across disciplines. You understand how the energy industry works, but you also know it is changing fast and have intuition on how to work with market leaders to bring about a new energy ecosystem.
