We are looking for a Head of Engineering (or Chief Technology Officer) to lead the development of a platform to help investors and technology companies to achieve their climate and social goals.
This is a great opportunity to apply your engineering expertise to lead an up-and-coming startup in climate tech. You will be spearheading the technical development the product, informing best practices, building a team, and communicating the technology strategy with different stakeholders. As a Head of Engineering, you will be a strategic partner in defining and building the first product from concept to implementation. NYC preferred location, but open to remote.
Kara is a software platform to empower investors and technology companies to achieve their climate and social goals.
The problem that we are solving is that investors (LPs and GPs), governments, and a whole new generation of consumers are increasingly asking if their capital is building the world that they want to see: Are our investments helping solve our climate crisis? What's the diversity of the leadership of our portfolio companies? Are there any practices within the companies that are not responsible?
Starting with venture capital investors, the platform measures the ESG and impact performance of a portfolio of companies, while extracting insights on both individual companies and an aggregated portfolio, making the results easy to share with LPs and other stakeholders. The platform is framework agnostic (SFDR, UN PRI, UN SDGs, Net Zero, SASB, etc), but it has a set of data that is uniform throughout to be able to set benchmarks and compare metrics.
Capital is the ultimate lever for change. Kara aims to be the ESG data clearinghouse for all capital invested. We'd love for you to join us!
