We are obsessed with making manufacturing and construction green. Today, 40% of global emissions come from the built environment, for new buildings half is from the material choices alone. At the same time, the urban environment is set to double by 2060. That’s equivalent to building a new New York City every single month. Releasing 250 gigatons of “embodied carbon” just from the production of building materials.
At Pathways, we are building the data layer needed to decarbonise manufacturing. Pathways is developing AI-enabled technology to simplify the production of life cycle analysis for building materials. This is the core analysis needed to decarbonise building materials and to track sustainability in construction. Our platform automatically generates and updates Life Cycle Analyses, substantially reducing the time and cost of creating environmental product declarations (required certifications). Our technology integrates across operations to give manufacturers insight into the environmental emissions impact.
Pathways is led by Leise and Alex. Leise has extensive experience with life cycle analysis and decarbonization of building materials. She began her career in sustainability strategy at McKinsey, working with companies like Tata Steel, before scaling an end-of-life material recycling venture. Alex is a technologist, and led data and finance teams at multiple venture-backed start-ups including Uber, Clutter, and Two Chairs.
We’re looking for a dynamic, full-stack Founding Engineer to join our founding team as we build the platform needed to decarbonize manufacturing and the built environment. As a founding member, you will have the unique opportunity to influence the company's technical strategy, architecture, and product development from the ground up. Ideal candidate has some experience (even personal projects) with LLMs and exposure to new tools like LangChain or Llama Index. This is a hands-on role that requires creative flexibility, passion for problem-solving, deep technical expertise, and a drive to help bring the manufacturing industry into the 21st century.
Nice to have
