Description

Founded in 2017, our client is a sustainability company that empowers measuring progress towards a more sustainable future, which is a complex, multi-dimensional, cross-border, and cross-industry task. They firmly believe harnessing the power of technology, specifically machine learning and Natural Language Processing, is the best way – at scale – to produce viable answers to big questions like “How will we get to net-zero?” and “Which paths can we take to actually live in a more equitable world?” Moreover, they believe technology is singularly positioned to produce answers that are unbiased and wholly scientific- and evidence-based.

To that end, they offer a customizable and scalable sustainability tech kit, which anyone can integrate directly into their existing day-to-day way of working, investing, researching, or shopping. Anyone can switch on their computers or phones, open their usual applications or platforms, and find the company built right in. This is true whether you are a professional investor in the public or private markets, an executive at a company of any size, or a consumer considering an online purchase of any size. They are integrated into the full sustainability ecosystem in order to deliver as broadly as possible on their mission in markets of all kinds – from investment exchanges to e-commerce platforms.

Their Values

Our client’s mission drives them forward. Their values guide them along the way. They admire people who are driven to change the world, and they focus on finding people to work with who have passion and a record of achievement or personal impact across five specific areas. Specifically, they look for people who are:

  • Data-driven: Promoting objective, fact-based and solution-oriented discussions
  • Independent: Leveraging the freedom of working on a singular mission to work with purpose and with an ownership mindset
  • Achievement-oriented: Demanding excellence and celebrating and rewarding the best
  • Transparent: Communicating feedback transparently, constructively and in real-time
  • Flexible: Working flexibly in the broadest sense (e.g., schedule, location, vacation, styles)
Their Team

Our client’s people are their main asset. Having doubled their team in the last year, they now have more than 200 highly passionate individuals from more than 30 different countries. Their headquarters are in New York City, and they have other offices in London, Madrid and Abu Dhabi. Additionally, they have a strong remote-workforce of team members located in 13 different countries.

They believe leadership doesn’t come only from the top. At the company, they believe strength, innovation and success come from the collaboration of excellent, authentic and passionate individuals with a joint purpose. To that end, they don’t believe leadership begins and ends with their executives. They are proud of the full team they have assembled and celebrate leadership qualities throughout all levels and across all functions. Every member of their team has excelled and achieved professionally and academically, and hail from leading tech, consulting and banking firms, and/or are entrepreneurs, and/or hold PhDs from top research institutions and/or MBA graduates from top business schools. And, every member of their team works to do not only their work at the highest level but also the work – the work of the brand, the work to achieve their singular mission. Enabling that success isn’t drive and intelligence alone – it’s also subject matter and market expertise, which is where their senior leaders excel. Our client’s executive team has an average of over 20 years of experience at top global brands, tier 1 management consultancies, successfully scaled start-ups, and global NGOs. They also trained at the best academic institutions from around the world.

They care about their people and think they deserve the best. They currently offer equity packages and other benefits on top of cash compensation.
