GreenTech Python Developer – saving the planet!
Location: Amsterdam / Hybrid remote – 2 days in the office
Must be an EU resident and have the right to work in Amsterdam.
Salary: €60,000 – €80,000 + benefits.
Planting trees alone isn’t the solution to the climate crisis. But enhancing biodiversity and supporting wildlife and endangered species is a critical action we must take.
Putting some saplings in the ground sounds simple but doing it at scale can be costly. Landowners need to be brought onboard and there needs to be tangible benefits to achieve that at scale.
That’s where this company come in. Using their platform they will link anybody wanting to plant trees with the finance or resources needed to start sequestering carbon into our soils and begin the journey of enhancing deteriorated land.
The even have solutions for tackling desertification which is taking place at alarming rates.
This role will be hybrid remote, with 2 days in the office, maybe 3 days on occasions when required. Initially you’ll focus on a large-scale data and process migration project.
Currently their carbon capture categorising and inventory processes are a little abstract and tied to legacy systems established when the company was a handful of people.
Now they’re up to about 60 and need everything integrated into their much newer and slicker systems to maintain their current growth and reach the levels they’re aiming for.
Tech wise, Python and Django are the only 100% necessary requirements. They also use React but initially Python and Django are the main skills.
Some other beneficial bits would be having experience with geospatial databases or mapping technologies, and experience with Pandas and scientific libraries for coding in that format and of course R.
They have a really collaborative environment; they like to give opportunities to interns to learn and have a very diverse team from all kinds of backgrounds – including those evil companies that folk wanted to ditch to come and do some good.
It’d be ideal if you can demonstrate that you truly care about delivering solutions to our biggest problems relating to climate change.
Their Amsterdam office is based in a climate tech hub, so there’s also a bunch of other incredibly exciting and inspiring people and companies you’ll get to interact with in varying capacities, some in collaboration, some just hearing about and learning from their successes and failures, but all with interesting stories to tell and solutions to offer.
If making a difference matters to you, and you’d like to turn your skills to delivering real impact, please apply.
