Lead for Data Science @ Climate Change Start-up

About the job

Description
Exciting chance to work directly with two co-founders (ex-MIT, McKinsey, SoftBank) to build out a product to help
customers effortlessly achieve net-zero GHG emissions.

Responsibilities
The intern will be responsible for identifying critical GHG emissions data, and automating the cleaning, aggregating,
and structuring of the data to draw-out meaningful customer insights. These insights will be used in customer
research and to inform product development decisions.

Requirements
The intern should (i) be capable of collaborative problem-solving, (ii) able to work on agreed-upon deliverables in a
standalone manner, while not hesitating to flag unexpected or interesting findings, (iii) be able to demonstrate
familiarity with Excel (or Access) and (ideally) solid programming skills to help automate data acquisition and
manipulation. Attention to details and a willingness to constructively challenge “conventional wisdom” critical.
Preexisting awareness of relevant data sets (including strengths and limitations) a strong plus.

Location
Remote or, if located in the Bay Area, in-person meetings on as-needed/helpful basis

Next Steps
Interested candidates are encouraged to submit (i) a cover letter introducing themselves and their professional
accomplishments and ambitions; (ii) a short (1 page) description of any specific qualifications that make them
particularly suited to this particular internship. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.

Core Values
We are looking for open-minded individuals who are passionate about helping achieve net zero GHG emissions by
2050. We strongly prefer individuals that appreciate that society, as a whole, needs to rise to this challenge, and that
individuals are starting from many different places and with strikingly different motivations.
