Career Opportunities

Find Your Team

New Markets

New Markets provides the market intelligence that drives Apex’s greenfielding process and overall strategy to identify potential sites for clean energy projects. All the crucial elements must come together to qualify.

Development

The Apex Development team sees projects from site selection through financing and construction, identifying supportive landowners, cost-effective opportunities, and flexibility across changing permitting timelines.

Land Management

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

Technology and Energy Assessment

Data drives renewable energy development. Apex’s energy analysts interpret data using the latest technology to optimize the Apex portfolio, and our GIS team is integral to identifying prospective project sites, preparing spatial analyses, and creating cartographic products that allow Apex to accurately assess wind and solar 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.

Transmission

Access to transmission is critical for any successful renewable energy project. The Transmission team ensures that Apex maintains its competitive edge in a constantly changing interconnection environment.

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.

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.

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.

Distributed Energy Resources (DER)

Distributed energy (also known as shared solar or community solar) allows customers to purchase clean power directly through a subscription in a shared solar facility. The DER team manages the development and execution of this growing line of business.

Energy Storage

Apex offers energy storage solutions, either as a standalone product or as part of a renewable energy system. The Apex Storage team works closely with others across the organization to realize the opportunities presented by this nascent market.

Public Affairs

Apex sees landowners and communities as true partners in our renewable energy projects. The Public Engagement and State Affairs teams work to build relationships with local stakeholders and state government officials to help ensure a project’s success.

Marketing and Communications

The Marketing and Communications team focuses on elevating Apex’s corporate brand through media relations, digital marketing, and partnerships.

Project Management

Managing the engineering and 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.

Accounting and Administration

Apex’s Accounting, Human Resources, Facilities, and Information Technology professionals are vital to keeping Apex running efficiently and effectively.
