Job Description


Full Stack Developer 

Location: Remote (Preferred location: Costa Rica, other locations considered on a case-by-case basis) 

About Tradewater 

Tradewater, a certified B Corporation, is in business to prevent catastrophic climate change. We are on a mission to improve the environment and create economic opportunity through the collection, control, and destruction of potent, high-impact greenhouse gases. Tradewater is a deeply mission-driven company that believes that a company committed to cleaning up the environment can be just as successful – if not more so – than a company that achieves its goals without regard to environmental impact.  

To date, Tradewater has prevented more than 6.1 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent from being released into the atmosphere, a critical step in the fight against climate change. Much of this impact has come from the identification, collection, and destruction of old refrigerants that are both ozone depleting substances and potent greenhouse gases. Now, Tradewater is scaling its operations and building a global team capable of preventing more than 3 million tons of CO2e from being released to the atmosphere annually. Achieving this goal involves identifying, controlling, and destroying potent greenhouse gases around the world and building a diversified market that values the climate benefits Tradewater creates. 

The Opportunity 

To support its growth around the world, Tradewater is seeking a Full Stack Developer to support the design, development, and maintenance of databases, servers, and applications with expertise in e-commerce platforms, including subscription-based models and user-facing features.

There is a strong preference for this location; however, applicants outside of these areas may be considered. The position will report to the Director of Communications based in Chicago, Illinois.
