Project Finance – Senior Financial Analyst

The Company

Scout is developing a MW portfolio of over 5,000 MW of wind, solar and energy storage projects across 11 US states.  Scout is an owner-operator with expertise in all aspects of renewable power project development, permitting, power marketing, finance, construction and asset management.

Scout is made up of renewable energy industry veterans who are making a difference in our world. Our team’s work ethic is second to none. We identify problems, create solutions, and deliver them professionally to our customers, stakeholders, partners and one another. We do the right thing when no one is looking because we are committed to our collective success and because we believe that our uncompromising integrity is key to the collaborative relationships that drive our business.

Summary Description

As Scout’s Senior Financial Analyst, you will leverage your past experience in financial analysis of renewable energy and/or power sector projects to inform strategic decisions in every aspect of our business. You will build project-specific models, refine and integrate inputs, and determine which scenarios to run based on your knowledge of the most important variables. You will support day-to-day management of transactions and will represent Scout with authentic professionalism to all of our business partners and counterparties. In short, you will help to improve Scout’s investment strategies across the entire portfolio of projects.

You will be responsible for project-based financial modeling and preparing documentation, reporting and analysis to assist investment decisions. This includes providing insight to the Development team about which inputs drive their projects’ financial performance so that they can adapt their development plans accordingly. Your analysis will inform pricing strategies developed by the Origination team to ensure that the long-term revenue streams will contribute to target rates of return and integrate needed risk management strategies.

In addition, you will provide key support to M&A and project finance transactions. Beyond your financial analysis support, you will serve as an important point of interface with our counterparties, advancing Scout’s negotiating position and initiating and responding to diligence requests.

While the bulk of your work will focus on project-level finance, you will also inform corporate financial modeling from time to time. This may include integrating the results of the project models, conducting more specific analysis, preparing reports to our investors, and preparing board papers that present the case for alternative investment options.

We will rely on you to develop systems and tools to drive efficiency in our work. To do so, we expect that you will integrate the expertise you have developed in previous roles while continuing to advance your knowledge of our industry and innovation in renewable energy project finance.

You will report to Scout’s VP of Project Finance and will work alongside a small team of Analysts.
