Sales Manager, Madrid, Spain

Join us to create maximum climate impact and financial returns

Bright Sunday is a European cleantech and investment company on a mission to cut CO2 emissions by making the cleantech transformation easy and profitable for commercial and industrial customers. 

Our core business is to offer self-consumption solar PV systems and ancillary services such as electric vehicle chargers and energy storage with zero upfront investments and savings from day one. Currently Bright Sunday owns and operates a portfolio of approximately 70 solar PV systems in Spain, Portugal and Sweden with a total effect of more than 20 MW.

Bright Sunday engages in digital, direct and indirect sales (leads from partners). All solar PV systems are designed and built at a fixed price by local EPC partners. When the solar PV system is commissioned, Bright Sunday takes care of real-time system monitoring, system check-ups and troubleshooting. We use both internal and external resources for preventive maintenance, repairs and cleaning.

Bright Sunday was founded in 2016 in Sweden but made its first installations in Portugal in 2018. During 2020 we expanded to Spain and 2023 we made the first installation in Sweden. We believe the corporate culture is a great mix between our Swedish heritage and the culture in the markets where we are active.

In the coming five years we will expand to additional new markets and build a leading pan-European cleantech and investment company with a €100m asset portfolio. We are financially backed by Niam Infra Fund, an infrastructure fund that has the European Investment Fund as one of its main investors. We are currently investing in a new business and CRM system, an enhanced web and digital marketing platform, new service offerings and a new sales team.
