About the role

BlueWave works closely with independent land scouts to identify and engage target landowners who own property having strategic value for renewable energy development.  The land scout is an independent contractor who will deploy a variety of tactics to make contact, engage, build a relationship and close definitive land deals with target landowners identified by BlueWave.  The Land Scout may also bring self-sourced landowner relationships to the table for BlueWave to review.  Contact and engagement tactics include verifying contact information, calling, texting, emailing, networking/social networking and making visits to landowners’ homes or places of work. Once engaged, the land scout will build a relationship with the landowners, involving calls, texts, emails and especially site visits, to bring the landowner to a point where they feel comfortable signing a lease option or purchase option with BlueWave for renewable energy development.  A fully executed lease option or purchase option will constitute the initial milestone of work product and payment for the Land Scout, with the final milestone for payment coming when a project powers on.  Currently this position would require the successful candidate to live in either New York, Michigan, Massachusetts, Maryland, Pennsylvania or California.  * Please note that this role is an 1099 role and does not include benefits.
