GAF Energy is growing rapidly, and joining our team now means getting in at the ground level of something truly revolutionary.
“It’s an exciting time for GAF Energy,” says Rey Holmes, vice president of services and product management at GAF Energy. “We’re at the tipping point of innovation.”
He’s right. This year, GAF Energy released the world’s first true solar roof, Timberline Solar™, positioning us to become the country’s largest solar company—thanks in part to our partnership with GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer. To help grow the success we’ve already seen at GAF Energy, we’re hiring for multiple positions across the company.
With Timberline Solar, GAF Energy sees a huge opportunity to implement lasting improvements in residential clean energy.
“For all of solar’s success over the last decade, it’s still only installed on a tiny percentage of homes in the U.S. Solar needs to be on every roof to drive real impact for the world,” says Martin DeBono, president of GAF Energy. “We believe Timberline Solar is the game-changing innovation that will get us there. It can take solar from a niche product to mass market adoption.”
But widespread clean energy adoption won’t happen with a game-changing product alone. It takes a truly innovative company with a powerful business model—and GAF Energy has both. Working here means being an active component of this vision.
GAF Energy combines the spirit, energy, and ingenuity of a startup with the support of the largest roofing and waterproofing company in the world, Standard Industries.
We launched in 2019 with an ambitious vision to generate “energy from every roof,” by developing a mass-market solar roof that is aesthetically pleasing, affordable, and easy to install. And we achieved that vision thanks to our incredible team.
“It’s been quite a journey, and quite a challenge. I’m constantly amazed by the resiliency of the team we have,” said Dr. Gabriela Bunea, chief solar innovation officer at GAF Energy. Dr. Bunea invites applicants to consider that challenge: “With us, you’re not going to be part of your average team. You are going to be part of a high-performance team.”
Hiring a high-performance team has helped us develop a culture of innovation. As an organization, we aim to innovate through three core tenets of team performance, adapted from Patrick Lencioni’s work on organizational development: trust, conflict, and results.
Our results-driven culture, inspiring team, and operational structure make working for GAF Energy a rewarding experience that effects real change in the world of renewable energy. As part of Standard Industries and in partnership with GAF, GAF Energy has direct access to a roofing market ripe for greater adoption of solar technologies. A passionate upstart with the right resources, GAF Energy is able to achieve what many category-leading companies, from DOW to Tesla, have only attempted: develop a truly roof-integrated solar product, to accelerate clean energy adoption on rooftops around the world.
And we’re being recognized for it. Timberline Solar ES™ has received multiple awards and honors since its launch in January 2022, including Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas, the Best of Innovation award from CES, Green Builder Sustainable Home Award, Good Housekeeping Editor’s Choice for CES 2022, and the NAHB Best of IBS Awards, Most Innovative Construction Tool. Our staff numbers have also multiplied. We are headquartered in San Jose, CA, but we have more than 200 solar roofing industry experts located in every region of the country as we expand into more markets.
“The goal is to drive energy from every roof,” said DeBono. “Distributed solar at the scale we’re working toward will truly change the world.”
