About the role

About Heimdal

Heimdal builds machines that remove atmospheric CO2 and stabilize the oceans. Every year, 40 billion tonnes of CO2 is released. We use electricity to alkalinize seawater and extract atmospheric carbon dioxide and restore stability to the oceans in the phase of increasing CO2 emissions. We're building a scalable, profitable solution, today.

We are working with established multinationals to supply them with the highest quality carbon credits available and are partnered with some of the largest desalination facilities in the world to bring our soluton to market at scale quicker. We are completing our pilot facility on the Island of Hawai’i in partnership with the solar desalination facility owned and operated by Terraformation in Q2 2022. Our next project will be to construct the largest carbon removal facility in the world.

You will be working out of our London HQ.

We are venture backed by Y Combinator, Cathexis Ventures, Sam Altman’s Apollo Projects, Marc Benioff and many other investors.
