    • You will be responsible for data collection efforts performed on a monthly or quarterly basis, including web scraping, alerts, outreach, and dynamic searching to find new innovators, deals, and capital providers to add to our index

    • You will perform specific climate and carbon research for use in benchmarking our data

    • You will be responsible for validation of current index data (quality control) to the extent that that is possible, using internal checks and balance policies, and possibly including outreach to CCN index members

This is a 1-year contract position with an option to extend for an additional year.
