ClimateTech Software Engineering Manager – Earth Observation
Location: Fully remote within Europe, +/- 2 hours of CET.
Salary: €75K – €100K + equity & benefits.

Forest management is tough. Cut too much and we release carbon, too little and the risk of wildfire or damage to infrastructure can be devastating.

Vegetation monitoring may not sound very exciting but building earth observation software, utilising satellite imagery and Machine Learning with remote sensing and geospatial presents interesting challenges.

These systems are used to efficiently manage resources and team activities, saving time and money.

Most importantly though, this saves homes, businesses and services from blackouts caused by seasonal and extreme weather events. It’s a game changer in energy and climate resilience.

The company have grown rapidly since the end of 2021. There are ~70 people now, with around 45 in development and data science across 5 teams with one core product, each being quite specialised.

You’ll lead a team of 6-8 cross-disciplined people, building out new features and implementing deeply interesting product developments. Your key focus will be optimising the team, removing bottlenecks, and supporting them individually, managing resources and planning workloads in line with changing priorities.

Data processing and pipelines are critical to the work, and it’s essential you’ve worked with machine learning products in the past. Geospatial and remote sensing data experience and any knowledge of satellite and high-resolution imagery would also be very helpful.

Their tech stack is Python, Django, Typescript, Node and React, with Google Cloud Platform for managing their services. They use a lot of PyTorch and TensorFlow and various other data libraries or frameworks so you might be getting the hint that data exp is key experience.

They’re hoping to find someone who’s been an EM in numerous companies, having seen some different approaches to leadership, process design and implementation, onboarding, and a deep curiosity for understanding people. Empathy is critical and this all feeds into building a team who are passionate about having a positive impact and compassionate towards their peers.

They also want someone familiar with startup environments, ideally who’s been through series A-C fundraises and the growth that comes with bringing on paying customers and investment simultaneously.

The team are friendly and passionate, and the company are supportive with good benefits including equity, so you’re bought into any future success.
