Data is the new gold and ‘Climate Data’ even more so. Multi-trillion Euro industries such as real estate, insurance etc. lose billions of Euros annually due to disruptive extreme-weather events such as forest-fires, flooding, storms etc. With ongoing climate change, these events will become more frequent and more intense. This has created a need where businesses are looking for ready to use climate data and adaptation solutions to avoid future losses and that is where we come in!
Our start-up uses big-data to make businesses resilient to physical climate risks. We are disrupting the current practices of climate risk assessments by directly connecting risk recognition to mitigation and supply solutions through APIs; replacing the traditional and expensive one-on-one consultancy.
We have now concluded a comprehensive market research, concept validation and networking by attending trade fairs, all the whilst building traction and onboarding use-case clients. We are now entering the next stage of growth where we need a CTO to join us as a Co-Founder and help us build and launch our product and meet clients’ ever-growing demands and expectations.
What you will receive:
In addition to the financial growth opportunity, you will be part of a fun and cross-disciplinary work environment; a diverse and openminded team who appreciates uniqueness and talent. You will have remote working flexibility but you will be available to meet with the team at least once per month. You will have the opportunity to develop yourself professionally as you will have a say in our company’s executive decisions.
Who you are:
You are a backend-engineer with several years of work experience, ideally with big-data and Earth observation data.

You are an excellent communicator, not shy in speaking your mind and are a team player. You want to make the world a better place and are interested in solving issues around climate change.
You could be experienced - perhaps you have been on start-up journeys before & are ready for your next adventure or you could be new to the start-up environment but are full of fresh perspective and enthusiasm for the business world.
An interest in the financial growth of the company and its revenue model is key. You don’t have to turn into an accountant but you need to put your perspective into the business since you will have a stake in it.
