Position Title: Senior Analyst

 

Employment Status: Full Time

 

Location: NE Portland, OR (The position is remote but the individual must be permanently located in North Eastern, OR)

 

About Waypoint: Waypoint is a commercial energy efficiency company that delivers utility and public services for various users in the CRE sector. Waypoint’s core mission is to significantly decrease energy usage within the commercial building sector through advanced energy analytics and innovative market deployment programs. Our multidisciplinary team of technical experts and commercial real estate professionals develops and implements innovative market engagement strategies with demonstrated cost savings. In a short time, Waypoint has established itself as a trusted advisor to national commercial real estate companies, utilities, and select federal, state, and local government agencies.

 

Position Summary: As a Senior Analyst, you will lead outreach and engagement to recruit and support customers in pursuing energy efficiency projects for commercial and multifamily properties on a Program that extends throughout the state of Oregon.  Your work will be focused on supporting customers in the NE Oregon region, and you must be able to travel throughout your region to engage with your customers. You will work directly with building owners and managers, local municipalities, engineers, and others to execute on the successful implementation of efficiency program management services in support of program execution. Senior Analysts in this role will serve as a single point of contact for customers wishing to participate in the Program. This includes research and analysis to identify appropriate program candidates and engaging with those that are both familiar and unfamiliar with the Program. Senior Analysts conduct outreach with a goal to successfully enroll customers and projects into the energy efficiency Program offerings. Meeting with customers may take place via phone, email, and in-person events (pending Covid-19). Once enrolled, you will work directly with customers to support their journey through the Program. This includes identifying the most relevant entry point into the Program (i.e. standard, custom, business lighting, small business, etc.), and performing project management duties for ongoing projects until they have successfully completed.  Throughout the course of the day-to-day role, Senior Analysts may need to communicate the benefits in terms that resonate with that customer (financial metrics vs. energy metrics) to encourage stakeholders to move forward, identify project opportunities by performing site assessments, and conduct project verification inspections. Alongside your outreach role, you will be responsible for working with the client, building lasting relationships and working as team to achieve an overall goal. You will provide the team with market intelligence, updated technology, and trends all the while cultivating and maintaining relationships with key role players within the market.

 

In addition to successfully helping to deliver on the Program, you will work with Waypoint management and clients to expand our existing business lines over time. Primary responsibilities include conducting market research, analyzing data, and crafting project deliverables such as research reports and presentations. Other responsibilities will include developing proposal responses for new work and creating tools and resources for internal company use. The work is challenging and meaningful. Every day you will be working towards helping society better utilize its energy resources. A background in management consulting, project management, or an equivalent field is preferred for this role.  Direct experience working with utilities is preferred but not required.
