How do you build a better tomorrow? A spirit of constant improvement has made Maxeon Solar Technologies, the world-renowned leader in solar innovation, and we thrive together to lead the fight against climate change.

The energy market is roughly $4 trillion globally, and solar penetration is less than 1%.  But just one hour of sunlight, if harnessed, could power the entire world for a year. We have the opportunity to completely change the way energy is produced, distributed and consumed on a global scale, and we’re looking for talented, committed people to help us drive our growth and achieve our goals.

Maxeon Solar Technologies is a global leader in solar innovation. Built from 35 years of boundary-pushing solar DNA, the company launched as an independent entity following its spin-off from US-based SunPower Corporation in August 2020.

Maxeon designs, manufactures, and sells industry leading SunPower branded solar products in more than 100 countries through a global network spanning more than 1,100 sales and installation partners. Maxeon is powering positive change every day with a brilliant, passionate and driven team of more than 5,000 in Latin America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

We push the boundaries, taking solar technology higher, faster, and farther than before. We hold ourselves to a higher standard, striving for the highest integrity, safety, and quality. We thrive together as a global team, embracing our diverse backgrounds to make a positive impact on the world. Are you ready to power positive change?
