We’re a team of believers. We believe that humanity can stop and even reverse climate change by removing over 1 trillion tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere. How do we get people to remove that much carbon at scale? Pay them! Nori’s marketplace is the infrastructure that creates the financial incentive for people and companies to remove massive amounts of CO2 from the air.
Nori is a venture-backed and highly values-oriented company. Our focus is on people and the planet. We’re composed of a diverse set of people with complementary skill sets, all unified in the mission of restoring the world’s atmospheric carbon balance back to 300ppm.
We strongly suggest that you read in detail about our company values and mission at https://nori.com/careers.
At Nori we follow a lightweight Scrum process. We take Nori’s value of Continuous Improvement seriously and are always refining our process to suit the needs of the team and the moment. We lean heavily on developer-written tests and CI/CD to have confidence in our releases. Our QA functions focus on elaborating test plans with engineers, filling in gaps in our automated test coverage, and looking at the big picture.
Our product and design team members are relentlessly customer-focused and spend a great deal of their time learning from our stakeholders and customers on both sides of the marketplace. Nonetheless, we work to create opportunities for all members of the product and engineering teams to have as much access to stakeholders and customers as they want.
In this early engineering management role you will have a lot of influence over the team and the process as we grow. You will report to the Head of Engineering and collaborate closely with our Project Manager, Product Managers (1 for each side of our marketplace), DevOps and QA. You will also have ample opportunity to interact with the other teams throughout the company.
Each of these teams work a little bit differently, but they work hand in hand with each other to create an inventory of verified carbon removals that can be sold through our marketplace.
The Product Team where this role lives is responsible for the Nori marketplace, supply-side enrollment app, marketing website, and any of the technical/software aspects of Nori’s work. We are actively expanding the product team to build out a second product delivery squad. The Product team works with the other teams—Supply, Sales, and Communications—to support business development needs.
The Supply team works with Nori Suppliers: anyone who can verifiably remove and store CO2 from the atmosphere. The Methodology team works on developing the requirements for how projects are enrolled (see current methodology). Both teams report to the Head of Supply and Methodology. As Nori’s current focus is on our Croplands Methodology, the Supply team is working with farmers as well as the partners and companies around them to enroll croplands into the Nori market.
The Demand team sells carbon removals. Specifically they sell Nori Removal Tonnes (NRTs) to B2B customers as well as through partnerships with other companies, like NFT marketplaces and carbon footprint companies. They stay in tight communication with the Supply team about how much inventory they will have to work with. And they partner with the Communications team around how to get marketing messaging out, and create new content for presenting to potential customers and partners.
The Comms and Marketing team produces and hosts our two podcasts, Reversing Climate Change and Carbon Removal Newsroom, as well as manages all our marketing and social media channels.
Node.JS, Typescript, React, Next.js, GraphQL, Relay, GCP, Kubernetes, Hardhat, Solidity.
We’re still a small team and the temptation to get pulled in many directions is strong. We will rely on your ability to stay focused. You will be expected to be a leader in the skills you bring, to continue to hone those skills, and to learn some new ones at a pace that works for you. We will also expect you to devote some time to coaching and mentoring other team members with the goal of distributing knowledge across the team and continually bringing up the level of the entire team.
You’re not just working at some mobile ads startup—you’re directly helping build products to reverse climate change. Here are some of the non-cash benefits we offer:
Beyond those measurable benefits, we also think this is just a really fun place to work:
