CrossBoundary is not a development firm and is not seeking typical development skills - CBE will look to you for practical insights on how to make discrete business decisions that will directly affect our financial outcomes.

  •  Strong quantitative skills; mastery of financial and pricing models
  •  Strong business judgement; ability to independently conduct evaluations of a variety of businesses
  •  Deep understanding of renewable energy technologies such as solar PV, battery energy storage systems, biomass, and wind, and their commercial viability across markets in Africa
  •  Deep knowledge of global renewable energy markets, international trends, and their potential applications in developing country contexts

Qualifications

The ideal candidate will have the following skills and qualifications:

  •  Business-related bachelor's degree strongly desired
  •  Experience working in Africa, especially in East and West Africa
  •  4+ years in a business-related field at a top tier management consulting, private equity or investment banking firm
  •  Experience working in renewable energy
