About the role

Do you want to work on the most pressing problem of our generation? 

We’re building the infrastructure for the net zero transition, and we’re looking for brilliant engineers, designers, and data scientists who want to help define a low carbon future.

Decarbonizing the economy requires a granular, real-time view of where emissions come from and how they might be reduced. We build software to automate the carbon footprinting of supply chains. Banks, traders, and manufacturers use our product to tame the complexity of international supply networks, identify the most carbon-intensive parts, and find greener alternatives. We were part of the Y Combinator Summer 2020 batch and have secured backing from the UK government’s innovation arm, InnovateUK, the NatWest accelerator and the London Business School Incubator.

About CarbonChain:

CarbonChain helps companies automate the accounting of their carbon emissions. Most large companies need to account for their carbon emissions to 1) Avoid financial penalties 2) Access cheaper financing 3) Manage stakeholder requirements for carbon disclosure.  We currently focus on the extractive industries (i.e., Metals & Mining, Oil & Gas, and Agriculture) and logistics industries, which are responsible for over half of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.   

We’re a team of engineers and sales leaders who previously led in organisations such as Amazon, BCG, Rio Tinto, UBS and Just Eats. Our team founded several software & data startups and have market expertise in Oil & Gas, mining and consulting.

We were part of the Y Combinator Summer 2020 batch, and have recently completed our seed fundraising round. 

If you think your skills and experience match what we’re looking for and you’d like to join a Carbon Tech industry unicorn, please get in touch!

 

Why you should join CarbonChain

We’re building a SaaS tool that enables companies in highly polluting industries to track their supply chain carbon emissions so they can mitigate risks from incoming carbon taxes and government penalties.
