Innovation at iluméxico is all about the “doctrine of next.” Our activities fall under one of three focus areas: Product, Scale or Scope.
Global Product: Building the core product line for iluméxico distributed solar utility
Scale: Growing our model to new markets and countries.
Scope: Integrating new practices and products into our model and for our current customers.
One of our core values is to innovate to strengthen, not to distract.
Our multi-disciplinary team leads innovation for both iluméxico and its global entities. Innovation team members are expected to become “experts” on the model and day-to-day operation in order to develop and execute effective strategies for iluméxico and its global entities.
We seek highly-skilled, humble, team-oriented contributors with self-starter, entrepreneurial mindsets and a commitment to real impact via big structural change. A
value of the Innovation team at iluméxico is possession of the “big vision” and, just as important, the practical skills to execute it.
A sneak-peak of things we have in the pipeline: a customer-owned energy co-op on Tribal Lands in the United States, a long-term strategy for micro-carbon offsets, an internet product for our Mexico portfolio...
