Career Opportunities

Whether your skills and experience are in project origination, financing, engineering, or elsewhere, we have openings that could be a fit for you.

Development

The Apex Development team works to identify potential sites for clean energy projects. All the critical elements must come together to qualify: supportive landowners, cost-effective opportunities, and flexibility across changing timelines.

Land Management

Our energy leases allow Apex to foster partnerships with landowners to develop wind and solar facilities on private property. The Land group works closely with developers to maintain and manage these leases.

Resource Asssessment

Data drives renewable energy development. Apex’s energy analysts interpret data using the latest technology to optimize the development, financing, construction, and operation of the Apex portfolio.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Our GIS team is integral to identifying prospective project sites, prepararing spatial analyses, and creating cartographic products that allow Apex to accurately assess wind energy potential.

Environmental Permitting

Permitting is key to developing successful clean energy projects. Apex works to identify the permits required for a given jurisdiction, the studies needed to satisfy those permits, and potential vulnerabilities.

Public Affairs and
Strategic Engagement

Community support and engagement are core priorities at Apex. The Public Affairs team works to build relationships with local and government stakeholders to help ensure a project’s success, while Strategic Engagement focuses on elevating the Apex brand through media relations, federal policy, and partnerships.

Legal

Apex uses both internal and external counsel to oversee crucial legal transactions—lease structures, PPAs, and others—to mitigate risk and ensure maximum flexibility for projects.

Finance

Apex has an experienced team that maintains close relationships with financial institutions and providers to ensure stable and reliable investments. Our analysts play a critical role in evaluating project sites, selecting vendors, and assessing a variety of clean energy financial structures.

Business Development

Our Business Development team builds partnerships with many of the country’s most innovative and forward-thinking companies, utilities, and the military to bring clean energy resources online.

Construction and Engineering

Managing construction of Apex’s utility-scale facilities means prioritizing safety, security, and quality control to complete projects on time and on budget.

Asset Management

Apex’s Remote Operations Control Center monitors and controls all wind and solar assets around the clock. ROCC operators coordinate closely with field staff to keep every facility running safely and at peak performance.
