Despite raising $1 billion, Fisker Automotive is having a hard time advertising its open positions. None are mentioned on its website, and conflicting numbers from various reports, press releases, and data from the State of Delaware put the number of open positions at between 40 and 120 for a manufacturing facility it acquired from GM in Delaware.
Of the 29 companies in the KPCB Green Tech portfolio, The Green Job Bank included 25 in its study, and left 4 out: Ausra was acquired by Areva.

Finally, even though GMZ Energy recently announced that it received funding from Kleiner Perkins as part of its series C, we couldn't find any mention of the company on the Kleiner Perkins' website. GMZ has currently 8 open positions.
