About RMI’s Industrial Hub Initiative:
RMI is partnering with the Mission Possible Partnership in an ambitious effort to trigger a net-zero transformation of seven industrial and transportation sectors. To keep global temperature rise below 1.5 degrees, industrial emissions must decline significantly by 2030. RMI’s Industrial Hub Initiative will support the creation of two net-zero industrial “hubs” in Houston & Los Angeles. The hubs will scale existing clean energy technologies such as hydrogen, CCS/CCUS, synfuels, renewable energy, and storage. We will pair clean energy project developers with industrial users in the Steel, Aluminum, Cement, Chemicals, Shipping, Trucking, and Aviation industries. The LA and Houston hubs will provide the foundation for national and global expansion of zero-carbon industry.
As a Senior Associate, you are a creative problem solver who uses your collaborative, quantitative, technical, and analytical abilities to conduct compelling research on energy issues. You will collaborate with team members to build coalitions to implement visionary, yet practical, solutions.

Additional Valued Qualifications
We are a remote-ready company with team members around the globe. Our beautiful and welcoming offices are available for meetings or focused work, whether you are traveling through or living nearby.
Because these roles will support creating a hub in Los Angeles, California, we prefer candidates in California. This will be further discussed throughout the interview process.
We provide you with the essential IT equipment plus a one-time home technology payment and a monthly work from home/commuter allowance to ensure you have a comfortable home office set up and necessary supplies.
We love seeing each other in person! We occasionally gather for shared time together like retreats and learning experiences. Be ready to travel for occasional in-person meetings (and of course, we cover travel costs). Some roles may require more travel, which will be discussed during the hiring process.

RMI compensates based on the level and requirements of the role.
