Living Carbon is a public benefit corporation with a mission to responsibly rebalance the planet’s carbon cycle using the inherent power of plants. We believe that gigaton scale CO2 drawdown will only happen if solutions are both beneficial to the environment and profitable to landowners. We’ve developed photosynthesis-enhanced seedlings that capture carbon faster on underperforming and degraded land. In addition to improving carbon capture rates we are also working on extending the durability of nature based sequestration. We’re backed by some of the most prominent investors in Silicon Valley including Felicis Ventures, YCombinator, and Chris Sacca of LowerCarbon Capital.
If you believe that climate change is the defining global emergency of the century and want to join an ambitious project that’s working on a biological solution, we’d love to hear from you.
Living Carbon is using biotechnology and microbial treatments to develop high-quality, scalable, forest carbon projects on new types of underperforming land using our own seedling supply and planting partners. The resulting carbon credits are a solution that offers higher additionality, transparency, and co-benefits than many other nature-based solutions but without the high price point of engineered carbon removal. We are looking for a creative, mission-driven leader to bring these carbon credits to more buyers and carve out Living Carbon’s presence in the voluntary carbon markets.
Up until now, developing corporate carbon solutions has been driven by the CEO; as we grow that needs to change. We are looking for a senior level hire with experience either creating carbon credit portfolios for companies or working as a corporate sustainability leader. The primary objectives of this role are to increase our carbon credit procurement pipeline, develop a repeatable playbook of how to design and execute multi-year offtake agreements, and build strong relationships with a large portfolio of customers and marketplaces. The ideal candidate is a self-starter who is excited about the role of plant biotechnology and innovation in the nature-based carbon removal space and willing to take full ownership of the Living Carbon corporate carbon outreach, process and contract negotiations. This would involve developing new, data-driven approaches to identifying and reaching customers, refining and clearly communicating the narrative of our solutions, and working closely with the rest of our commercial team to shape our product. This role will report directly to our Head of Commercial.
Requirements and qualifications:
Living Carbon PBC offers competitive compensation, and generous healthcare, dental and vision insurance.
Living Carbon PBC is an equal opportunity employer.
We believe the best solutions to climate change are created by diverse teams. Living Carbon is focused on building a multicultural and inclusive team with strong representation from the many diverse communities disproportionately impacted by climate change. As a public benefit corporation, ensuring solutions to slow climate change are widely distributed to all peoples is critical to the success of our mission.
