Company Description

At Climatebase, we're mobilizing talent for a climate-positive world.

We’re focused on solving one of the biggest challenges faced by organizations working on climate: Hiring.

Our platform helps people discover climate jobs and transition into the space — and in doing so, we help climate-focused organizations hire the mission-driven talent they need to succeed.


Since our launch in July 2020, Climatebase has become the world's leading platform for climate jobs, talent, and community:

  • 500k people have used Climatebase to discover and apply to over 35k jobs at over 3,000 climate tech companies and environmental nonprofits.
  • We've built the foundation for a comprehensive hiring solution, which already includes a jobs marketplace, a talent network, a complimentary built-in Applicant Tracking System, and a new white-labelable job board product for other climate-focused communities, creators, and VCs to use to power their own climate job boards.
  • We’ve developed one of the leading climate tech newsletters, Climatebase Weekly, which reaches 40,000 readers twice each week, with an average open rate above 50%. (If you’re familiar with newsletters, you’ll appreciate that)
  • We’ve recently launched our first-of-many cohort-based courses, the Climatebase Fellowship, with an inaugural 150-person cohort of top talent from 2,500 applicants we received. We’re now actively looking to scale this program while launching new, more specialized CBCs.

 

Climatebase is both a product-centric and community-centric technology company.

We’re the first hiring platform entirely focused on climate. With hundreds-of-thousands of users in the past year, we’re increasingly being recognized as the go-to jobs and talent marketplace for the rapidly growing climate tech vertical.

Additionally, we’re now doubling-down on community, having successfully launched our first-of-many cohort-based courses, the Climatebase Fellowship, with an inaugural 150-person cohort selected from over 2,500 applicants we received. We’re now in the early stages of scaling our cohort-based courses, and in doing so, planting the seeds of community that will eventually flywheel into a scaled professional network — one that we may fully integrated into our platform and make core to our product’s user experience.

Our vision is to become the market network for climate — think “LinkedIn for climate”: part employment marketplace, and part professional network for individuals and organizations mission-focused on addressing climate change.




About our team

Our remote-first team is made up of passionate, diverse, climate-concerned technologists, operators, and community builders.

We have both big-tech and startup experience, coming from major technology companies like Slack, Netflix, Oracle, and Gusto, and having spent years in the trenches early-stage startups like Make School, a software engineering education company backed by Y Combinator, Andreessen Horowitz, and Kapor Capital.

Our advisors, allies, and partners include leaders from Project Drawdown, New Energy Nexus, Third Sphere, and many of the climate organizations hiring on Climatebase.
