Job Description

About Rumin8
Rumin8 is tackling one of the biggest contributors to climate change: methane emissions from livestock. The digestive process of beef and dairy cattle produces a full 3.7% of all greenhouse gas emissions, a huge contribution from a single source. With billions of people around the world relying on animal products as part of their daily diet, eliminating livestock methane production is a powerful lever in the quest toward mitigating climate change.
Rumin8’s technology is demonstrating reduction of emissions from cattle by up to 95%. Our technology replicates the anti-methanogenic compounds that occur naturally in plants and turns them into dietary supplements for livestock. By reducing methane production, we enable the animal to convert otherwise lost energy into increased productivity, a win for farmers and a win for our planet.
With recent backing by top climate tech investors – including Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Prelude Ventures, and Harvest Road – to commercialize the technology globally, we are on a mission to decarbonize hundreds of millions of cattle around the world for a resilient and climate-optimal global food system. If you believe - like we do - that solving climate change is the greatest calling of our generation, let’s talk.
