Why BAF & Clean Energy

A nice range of challenges and opportunity -- sales represents the lion's share of your work, but this position offers you the opportunity to enjoy other challenges as well.  In addition to cold calling and warm leads, you'll be educating others -- promoting green energy, and helping build the infrastructure by adding dealerships and installers to your territory.

Consider the following:
  • We have more than 70 authorized dealers nationwide.
  • We have a network of more than 20 installers nationwide.
The time is right -- while selling hard parts is an old industry, our technology will allow you to sell something new and different. The clean energy fuel industry is ripe, advancing quickly, and is part of the public dialog.  We're seeing exponential growth at BAF and Clean Energy, and we've only just scratched the surface. 

Proven strong leadership -- Clean Energy's leader, Andrew Littlefair, served as President of Pickens Fuel Corp (PFC), predecessor company of Clean Energy, which he co-founded in 1997 with Boone Pickens. He was also Staff Assistant to then President Ronald Reagan in the Office of Presidential Advance from 1983 to 1987. At BAF and Clean Energy you'll find our leadership teams to be highly qualified and accomplished professionals who are innovative and dedicated to clean energy.

Green standard for sustainability -- you probably already knew that natural gas burns much more cleanly than gasoline and diesel, producing significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions. But did you also know that natural gas is increasingly renewable, using biomethane reclaimed from landfill via waste-to-energy solutions?  BAF and Clean Energy are helping companies and public organizations meet aggressive environmental goals.

Green innovation -- BAF and Clean Energy have the right solutions at the right time, as more and more organizations are exploring alternative fuel vehicles and solutions. Clean Energy is rapidly adding fueling stations and building the CNG infrastructure across North America. BAF is the perfect partner in supporting the Clean Energy mission. For nearly 20 years, BAF has been the leader in conversions and systems integration for niche markets within the AFV industry.

Excellent compensation -- in addition to a competitive salary and uncapped commission structure, we offer a comprehensive benefits package.

Keys to Success

To be successful in this role, you should be able to effectively communicate with BAF and customer senior management as well as front-line salespeople. You'll be challenged to envision what the future infrastructure will be and then work as a fuel ambassador, educating small and larger groups about green fuel. Our company culture is relatively flat and every level has an ethic of doing what is necessary to get things done. Our leadership is approachable and involved, but it's up to you to keep clear communication open. You should be able to toggle back and forth, working with leaders as well as technicians, quality control, marketing and others, having the same level of comfort and confidence throughout. You'll find in this position that your soft skills and business finesse are just as important to your success as your hard skills. The ability to build relationships and manage long sales cycles will be key. 

Pictured: In a wave of the future, Dallas, Texas passed a bold city ordinance allowing CNG vehicles to move to the front of the taxi line in an effort to promote alternative fuel vehicles and cleaner air. In a move to improve our air quality and reduce our dependence on foreign oil, it will also allow Dallas to attract new companies and maintain federal funding for highways.
