An API to bundle trackable climate donations with any transaction.
We're looking for ambitious programmers who are excited by the idea of having an instrumental impact on both our product and the environment.
Verdn is an API that lets companies pledge to sustainable causes with one
POSTcall. Companies use Verdn to pledge with high-value user actions such, e.g. 2 trees planted with a product purchase, or 1 kg ocean plastic with a newsletter signup.
We take care of end-user journeys too — each pledge comes with a Verdn timeline to track its impact. See an example here.
P.S. There'll be time for fun, hacky things like building internal bots, creating feature ideas from experimental web technologies, and exploring technically ambitious demos.
Because Verdn is a small team of 4 right now, we're trying to keep our hiring process as efficient possible for both sides!
Our first point of contact will be a 20-minute video call, mainly to get to know each other and to see if we think there is potential for a fit for you to work with us.
At this stage, we want to make sure you get a chance to meet Chris (CEO) as you'll mostly have been talking to me (Rory, CTO) up until now. We'll spend roughly an hour talking about you, your experience, the role, and your ambitions and ideas for working at Verdn. This chat will not really be technical, but instead be a deeper dive on some of the things we covered in our initial video call.
Our technical interviews are split into two parts.
In this interview, we'll spend 90 minutes discussing a real-world product feature that we have shipped at Verdn. After giving you a top-level overview of our stack and feature-requirements, we'll plan the feature together and talk about how you would implement it. You won't be expected to write code here, but instead talk about technology choices (across the stack), UI / UX design considerations and ideas, and estimates and trade-offs.
We'll let you know about our decision as soon as possible, usually within a couple of days post-interview(s).
Our mission is to Ctrl+Z global ecosystem collapse. Everything we do is driven by that goal.
At Verdn, every task you do will directly or indirectly enable more positive impact in the world. We’ve already planted 750,000 trees, and recovered 200,000 kg of ocean-bound plastic, but that’s barely scratching the surface of where we’re going in the months and years ahead.
We’re a small team, which means you’ll have an outsized influence on product, culture, and company trajectory. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn about business functions beyond your role, engage directly with customers and NGOs, and much more.
Verdn is funded by YC, Fin Capital, Collaborative, Correlation, Notion, Gaingels, Climate Capital, and angels like Peter Livingston (Unpopular VC).
