Why Work Here?

“Fantastic culture, mission and team!”


Job Overview:

We have two key products: biochar material (physical product delivered regionally) and carbon credits (information product delivered globally). We’re looking for an experienced professional to help manage and optimize the delivery of these two products.

(manage) Managing quality assurance at each stage of the process and ensuring timely delivery to our customers is paramount. Any given day we have several trucks on the road and you will be regularly communicating with trucks and dispatch. You will be responsible for collecting and recording important information from each truckload we deliver, and later uploading this information for carbon credit registration where applicable. Meticulous record keeping and data management is a requirement.

(optimize) Moving bulk materials and information is not new, but each of our two key products has its own element of novelty. We seek your help in identifying the best tools available to optimize our processes, and in establishing these new practices. There may not always be a template to follow and sometimes we’ll need to pioneer new methods to get things done.

An ideal candidate has multi-year working experience with bulk materials and information logistics, has firm knowledge of the tools that are used in this space, and has a proven ability to troubleshoot problems and identify novel solutions. An ideal candidate is excited to grow with a small company, and isn’t afraid to take a leading role in the development and continuous refinement of our logistics management systems as we scale.
