Company Description


Company Description

Systemiq, the system-change company, was founded to drive the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement, by transforming markets and business models in five key systems: nature and food, materials and circularity, energy, urban areas, and sustainable finance.

A certified B Corp, Systemiq combines strategic advisory with high-impact, on-the-ground work, and partners with business, finance, policy-makers and civil society to deliver system change. We have offices in Brazil, France, Germany, Indonesia, the Netherlands and the UK.

Since our start in 2016, we have grown to more than 390 people working across locations in Brazil, Germany, France, Indonesia, the Netherlands, and the UK.

What do we do?

Systemiq orchestrates system change in clean energy, circular material solutions and sustainable land use. This means re-imagining our industries, re-configuring the world of energy, and regenerating the ecosystems around us. By addressing systemic failures in these areas, SYSTEMIQ aims to unlock economic opportunities that benefit business, society, and the environment.


As a Systems Change Project Manager SYSTEMIQ, you will work within one of our projects or programmes, e.g., to:

  • Co-create approaches with our partners/clients to overcome the perceived trade-offs between economic viability, ecosystem regeneration, and social inclusion and wellbeing,
  • Bring data together in a consistent way and perform analyses based on agreed questions for insights,
  • Develop long-lasting and collaborative relationships with project partners and stakeholders,
  • Provide strategic insights and develop practical solutions for successful transformations
  • Support these partners in monitoring, evaluating and communicating their business model, vision and impact.


Ideal candidates will have demonstrated contribution to change and impact, e.g., in thought leadership/research, project management, client relations, or stakeholder management. You have a strong record in professional excellence, and/or relevant academic achievements, and/or demonstrable curiosity and understanding of systems change.

You have proven yourself in different contexts and are keen to work in a young, entrepreneurial company where you can get involved in a variety of work, shape the business, and make maximum impact. You are inspired by SYSTEMIQ’s mission and approach to system change.

Specifically, you ideally come with a combination of the following mindset, skills, and experience:

  • Evidenced passion for SYSTEMIQ's mission and the sustainability / environment / social enterprise space,
  • 5+ years of experience in a professional system change environment (thought leadership/research, start-ups, advisory/consulting, strategy, project management, investment,), preferably in an international environment,
  • Understanding of key concepts and contexts within the topic area of environment, industry, energy, manufacturing, or agriculture/land use,
  • Master's degree or equivalent,
  • Intellectual curiosity and an interest to quickly dive into new topics,
  • Advanced problem-solving and analytical skills,
  • Skills and experience of relationship management on a senior level,
  • Collaborative team player and can-do attitude,
  • Entrepreneurial spirit with the ability to identify opportunities and new initiatives and to turn them into reality.
  • Resilience under stress and resourcefulness to deliver, and
  • Alignment with SYSTEMIQ's values (creativity, challenge, collaborate, change, care).
