About Rondo Energy 

Rondo Energy's mission is to eliminate 15% of global CO2 emissions in 15 years. 

To accomplish this mission, Rondo is deploying low-cost, zero-carbon Rondo Heat Batteries to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy and to significantly decarbonize industrial processes that are commonly thought of as "difficult-to-decarbonize". Our Heat Batteries charge from intermittent renewables to provide high temperature, continuous heat for customers safely, reliably, at an unprecedented 98% efficiency - and at a cost point that is lower than any other method. 

We are looking for a strong change leader and collaborator to take on the position of delivering RHB (Rondo Heat Battery) units while developing a global Project Delivery organization. The business is growing at a rapid pace and the key to success in Rondo Energy’s operating environment is a leader who has led within hyper-growth operating environments and understands what must be done to scale the business.  

The Project Delivery organization will lead the project from inception of the confirmed project award to delivery of the RHB (Rondo Heat Battery) on the customer’s site. The organization will consist of Project Management, Field Assembly & Construction, and Project Engineering (think Mechanical, Civil, and Thermal). While this is a new role at Rondo, we expect this role to spend 40% building scalable processes, 20% ensuring delivery of our first large projects,  20% implementing and executing our vision, and 20% creating new ideas. 

Join our team and together we can reduce world CO₂ emissions by 1% in 10 years, and by 15% in 15 years!

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
