JOB DETAILS
 

At Indigo, our mission is: harnessing nature to help farmers sustainably feed the planet. We started down this path leveraging microbiology, but we have quickly expanded across the entire agriculture supply chain.

Indigo Carbon & the broader Terraton Initiative is the most explicit expression of our sustainability goals yet. Our goal is to remove 1 trillion tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, sequester it in agricultural soils, & by doing that, improve the health of the soil, the profitability of farmers, the quality of our food, & the health of our planet. This goal is massive, & it will require a diverse team to make it happen. If youve been looking for a company that moves at the speed of Silicon Valley & is explicitly taking on climate change, wed love to hear from you.

There is not yet a carbon market in the world that is transacting the volume of carbon the world needs. There are carbon markets, & they are doing good work, but they have not hit the scale we all need them to. We aspire to meet that need. The hurdles we face are numerous, they are dynamic, & they arent easy. The Manager of Carbon Strategy will own large pieces of ambiguous projects. These projects will be both qualitative & quantitative. It will sometimes feel like whack-a-mole, where after each victory, we simply reveal the next hill to climb. But theyll be fascinating & inspiring, & always with a vision of the massive world impact we aspire to. Were looking for a future leader excited by tackling tough, inspiring problems.

The company is headquartered in Boston, MA, with additional offices in Memphis, TN, Research Triangle Park, NC, Sydney, Australia, Buenos Aires, Argentina, & So Paulo, Brazil.www.indigoag.com
