About Solar Monkey

The product that we make and sell, and the service we deliver

At Solar Monkey we accelerate the solar panel market. With our software, installers can remotely design, sell and monitor solar panel systems with unprecedented ease. 

  • Design: Design a solar system within a minute.
  • Sell: Generate personalized proposals and secure the delivery.
  • Monitor: Leave happy customers by reporting on performance.

Because of our software the business of our installers has become up to 50% more efficient. That gives us a big impact on the solar panel market. At this moment we are at a very exciting stage, as the Dutch market leader we are spreading our wings internationally. We are now active in Belgium and Spain and will expand further in 2021. We have a solid team, product and business to work from, but also many challenges ahead of us.

About our culture

What we stand for

Culture is a vital and unique part of Solar Monkey. It is the key to maintaining our competitive edge. 

There is not one magic principle that defines our culture. But the infinite game is at the core of almost anything we do. In practice, this means that there is a strong focus on building relationships, rather than extracting something out of them. 

We also believe that our focus on engagement and self empowerment allows for great things to happen. We give our people the freedom and full responsibility over their part of the business. It also means enjoying the freedom to do the work from a location and in a time that suits both you and the business.

Freedom and responsibility only work when people are eager to improve and achieve team goals. That is why we give much room for training and improvement. You receive both internal training and a budget for external training that can be spent as you desire.

Open communication is another value in our culture; We share knowledge on our 'Thirsty Thursdays', and teams are united around a common vision and quarterly goals. In our quarterly strategy weekends we share the company strategy with the team, accompanied by fun activities.

At Solar Monkey you will rarely see individual superstars. Why? Because it is a culture where everyone matters. Each individual employee has a voice, but we do this together. One for all, all for one.

Together we are working one a great goal: making solar the world’s leading power supply.
