About the Company
Carbon Sync’s mission is to decarbonize global value chains and their cycles of production. To achieve this, we are launching a pilot program: a web application where brands can enter the raw materials and supply chain details of their products to discover the carbon footprint and other climate impacts. Furthermore, we will enable brands to create “impact stories”using our library of carbon labels to share the impact with their customers.
We are looking to target early adopters; i.e., brands whose ethos prioritize sustainability in cosmetics/personal care and apparel.
The ambitious emission targets set in Paris COP 21 will require the private sector to eagerly assume its corporate environmental responsibilities. Given the complexity of the climate system, businesses will first need a comprehensive picture of how and how much their supply chains affect the planet.
Carbon Sync aims to identify the most efficient and cost-effective pathway for businesses of all sizes to become sustainable brands and build sustainable products.
Currently, sustainability services are serving the big players. To incentivize sustainable product design and manufacturing, it is imperative that carbon sync’s platform be made accessible to all teams - ranging from startups to Fortune 500s.
Why solving this problem is crucial
We want to spend the next 3 months building a MVP that will ensure our pilot program is successful. For this, we need an experienced developer who, along with the founder, and turn our vision into real and compelling software experiences for our users. You will be joining a team of designers, sustainability specialists and climate experts.
About the Role
We are looking for someone who will grow with the company, and progressively be willing to take on a leading role in development of new projects. We are a mission driven company, and prioritize working with people who are passionate about the climate crisis.
