Location: San Francisco 

Founded in 2016, Brightmark is one of the fastest-growing and most innovative waste-to-energy companies in the United States. Backed by major private equity investor(s) and drawing on the substantial experience and successful track record of its executive management team in clean energy generation (over 45,000 tons of CO2 offset to date), Brightmark is on a mission to be the preeminent developer, owner, and operator of waste-to-energy projects in the United States. Brightmark’s 5-year strategic goal is to develop and own a diverse portfolio of such generation assets that will allow the private company to go public or merge with a major industry counterparty at an equity valuation in excess of $1 billion. Brightmark is selectively looking to expand its corporate team with individuals who thrive in a fast-growing, team-oriented, entrepreneurial business culture and who share its commitment to being the best U.S.-based waste-to-energy provider. Brightmark’s culture is progressive and encourages green business practices.
