Job Description

Cervest is building the world's first open access AI-powered Climate Intelligence platform.

We’re a Certified B Corporation with a vision to build a climate intelligent world — one where everyone is able to use Climate Intelligence to adapt with climate change. By making Climate Intelligence open, democratised and transparent we will power a global Climate Intelligent Network™ that drives a chain reaction of climate intelligent decisions to protect the world’s critical assets, including our greatest asset — the planet.

Using our pioneering EarthScanTM product, anyone can discover how current and future climate events such as flooding, droughts, and extreme temperatures will impact their assets. EarthScan helps our customers confidently de-risk decisions, meet financial disclosure needs and improve the resilience of the assets they own, manage or rely on.

As a skilled and empathetic educator, you will thoughtfully identify and address the unique challenges faced by customers, clearly articulating how our innovative science and product can serve their needs across various departments. You will also play a key role in developing the team and contributing to the commercial strategy, using your expertise to educate and empower colleagues and provide valuable insights and recommendations for enhancing our go-to-market approach. Your voice will be critical in shaping our success.

As a rapidly scaling company on a mission, we are committed to ensuring that we support our team in developing in line with their aspirations and talents as well as continuing to develop our culture in line with our values.

We are a remote-first company and are hiring across Europe, the USA and beyond.
