Job Description

Who we are

Crux Climate is a stealth renewable energy fintech.

Crux is founded by Alfred Johnson & Allen Kramer.

They previously founded another mission-driven company, Mobilize (acquired in 2020). Alfred was most recently Deputy Chief of Staff of the Treasury Department. Before Mobilize, he led Sales/People for Clara Lending, and was a Vice President at BlackRock. Before Mobilize, Allen worked at Bain & Company and Assured Labor.

We are an early-stage, mission-driven company, backed by some of the best investors (soon to be announced). We are building a company where people care for each other, ship and improve rapidly, and focus unremittingly on the needs of our partners and customers. We care about building a team that reflects and embraces the breadth of experiences in the country. 

We are excited to meet you!

What you’ll do

You’ll be one of the first members of our product & engineering team, with a unique opportunity to build applications from scratch as well as craft our engineering processes and shape our team culture. You will:

  • Work closely with the rest of the team to identify the most important customer pain points and set the direction for the product
  • Own and ship new features end-to-end, balancing speed-to-learning and scalability
  • Collaboratively make key technology and architecture choices
  • Define processes and culture that empower you to do your best work

Did you start daydreaming when we said “build from scratch”?  No tech debt, no legacy code, no flaky tests, just an opportunity to leverage best-in-class technology for an amazing developer experience enabling you to ship more and suffer less.

Who you are

  • 5+ years* of software engineering experience across multiple company environments
  • Full stack engineer currently using TypeScript or JavaScript and React (or Angular, Vue, etc.)
  • Passionate about climate and renewable energy
  • Excited about building at the early stage
  • Contribute to and help build team culture in ways that are authentic to you
  • Bonus
    • Experience with Deno, Postgres, or Supabase 
    • Experience in renewable energy, fintech, or workflow SaaS
    • Based in NYC or DC (where founders are based)

What we provide

  • Estimated cash compensation of $150-$200k, depending on seniority and equity
  • Competitive equity package
  • Healthcare benefits
  • Remote-first company (preference for NYC/DC)
  • Travel stipend to get the team together at least once a quarter
  • Sleeping better at night knowing you’re helping fight climate change

Get in touch with us! 

*We are adding multiple people to the team. The best teams are built to complement each other. This may mean you skew front-end, back-end, or also bring leadership experience to the table. This also may mean you are below or above the indicated years of experience. Even if you aren’t sure if your background is a perfect fit, reach out anyways! 

We provide equal employment opportunities to all applicants without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, disability status, genetics, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other characteristic protected by law.
