Jobs at Midsummer
Join a company that's going places, in an industry that's doing good!
Midsummer began on a narrowboat in 2005. Our MD Andy lived off-grid and, as a former climate scientist, had experience with PV and battery systems in remote locations. The company has grown steadily from these modest beginnings, seizing the opportunity the feed-in tariff brought for the UK solar industry in 2010.
15 years on, we're now a team of 55 and growing. We've recently moved into our 6th warehouse; continue to grow our Dublin subsidiary; promote our solar design software in international markets and we've just launched our Renewable Heat offering, as well as Heatpunk, our design software for heat loss calculations and heat pump selection.
Why the renewable energy industry?
The transition to clean energy will touch on all aspects of modern life. Generating and storing clean energy at source makes ever more sense as we wean ourselves off fossil fuels throughout society. Electrification of transport is happening now, for heating it's coming soon, and intelligent home energy systems are just on the edge of mainstream.
It has never been a more exciting time to be in the renewables industry as the pace of change and innovation is incredible. In distribution you're at the coal face on a daily basis. Working with leading suppliers, installers and end users means you’re able to see the effects of your work on a daily basis.
Our culture has evolved from a passion to live sustainably.
We have built a team who care about making a difference, at work and at home, and who all share a common purpose.
Our values were created from this, and along with our training, ensure we provide a comfortable, enjoyable, successful and meaningful working environment.

Our development programme is integral to ensuring our employees reach and fulfil their potential. Whether it’s developing within an existing role, maintaining the same level, or progressing to the next, working in a business and industry as exciting and innovative as renewables means there is plenty of opportunity.
We also run the only graduate scheme in the industry - training the bright and ambitious people who'll take the renewables industry forward.
Whether you join as part of our graduate training program or as an industry veteran, we have programmes that run across every aspect of the industry.
From product knowledge and system design to business, operations and customer service, we ensure each team member has the knowledge and skills to thrive.
Each year, every employee’s pay is reviewed to make sure it reflects their individual performance meaning you get out what you put in.
We also offer an equitable profit share scheme, which is determined by our overall profit and distributed equally to long-serving members of the team.
