Company Description

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

Since our launch in July 2020, Climatebase has become the world's leading platform for climate careers, having helped hundreds-of-thousands of people discover job opportunities at more than 3,000 employers on our platform.

Through our jobs and talent marketplace, Climatebase helps people discover opportunities at climate tech companies and environmental nonprofits — and in doing so, we help those organizations hire the mission-driven talent they need to succeed.

We believe that in order to solve the climate crisis, we need millions of people to work on climate — from technology and innovation, to policy, advocacy, research, communication, media, and beyond.  We're on a mission to help millions of people make climate their careers.


About our team

We're a small team of passionate climate-concerned technologists, operators, and community builders. 

Our founding team members come from leading technology companies including Slack, Netflix, and Gusto, as well as Make School, a pioneering tech education company backed by Y Combinator, Kapor Capital, and Andreessen Horowitz

Our advisors, partners, and allies include leaders from Project Drawdown, New Energy Nexus, The Anthropocene Institute, Urban Us, and many of the climate organizations hiring on Climatebase.


Why we're hiring now

Climatebase recently joined Urban-X, an accelerator operated by Urban Us, a leading climate tech VC. During this time, we're focusing on product development, growth, and the launch of our much-anticipated Climatebase Fellowship.

As a platform, we have the best data on the climate tech employment market, and we've learned a lot about what it takes for people to successfully launch into a climate career.

The first and most critical step, of course, is simply knowing which climate job opportunities even exist. Addressing that challenge has been our company's starting point.

But we've discovered that in order to be hired, it often takes more than merely cold-applying to jobs. Although climate tech is rapidly growing, it's still nascent. That means there's still a lack of accessible and well-established professional networks in the space — which represents a major hurdle for jobseekers to overcome, considering that the majority of hires are made through personal connections. Nor are there enough high-quality re-skilling programs or alternative educational pathways designed to help people transition into working on climate.

We see these challenges as opportunities. We're building Climatebase to help millions of people work on climate.  And we see additional opportunities on the horizon for Climatebase to accelerate the climate tech ecosystem in other ways.
