Lead for Functional Prototyping @ 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 building a functional prototype that ideally combines (i) ingestion of customer data

should in turn, generate actionable recommendations about most relevant product data to gather and customer
segments to target.

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
programming capabilities relevant to the task at hand. Attention to details and an obsession with serving customer
needs is critical. Ability to show example work product a must.

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

Next Steps

accomplishments and ambitions; (ii) a short (1 page) description of any specific qualifications that make them

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.
