Cervest is building the world's first open access AI-powered Climate Intelligence platform.
We’re a Certified B Corporation with a vision to build a climate intelligent world — one where everyone is able to use Climate Intelligence to adapt with climate change. By making Climate Intelligence open, democratised and transparent we will power a global Climate Intelligent Network™ that drives a chain reaction of climate intelligent decisions to protect the world’s critical assets, including our greatest asset — the planet.
Using our pioneering EarthScanTM product, anyone can discover how current and future climate events such as flooding, droughts, and extreme temperatures will impact their assets. EarthScan helps our customers confidently de-risk decisions, meet financial disclosure needs and improve the resilience of the assets they own, manage or rely on.
As a company, we are a pro-diversity, highly inclusive organization, committed to bringing together people of all backgrounds and enabling them to succeed. We know that a richly diverse team will help us achieve our mission sooner.
Why will you enjoy this opportunity?
Cervest is building the world's first open access AI-powered Climate Intelligence platform. We are at an exciting moment in the company with our first product EarthScan™ already having a positive impact for our customers and we’re looking to expand our products and services both horizontally and vertically. This role is an opportunity to play a key part in this next stage of growth at Cervest.
What are the expectations over the first 6-12 months you will work toward completing?
We are at a fluid stage of the development of Cervest as a business. As an engineer, there will be plenty of features we’re looking for you to develop and iterate upon. But because of the fluidity, we’re also looking for engineers who can help us grow our product-engineering culture, ways-of-working, and, in turn, provoke positive change within the organization while also adapting to our ever changing and growing business.
What type of work will you be doing on a regular basis?
On a day-to-day basis you’ll be working with your engineering colleagues, members from other disciplines such as product and design, and others to deliver new product features as well as capabilities of our digital ecosystem in an agile and highly-collaborative environment.
We use a wide range of technologies from React & TypeScript on the frontend, to Python & Docker on the backend, to Terraform & Helm managing our infrastructure just to name a few. This is by no means an exhaustive list. We also use tools like GitHub and Shortcut to help us deliver our work. We do not expect engineers to be experts or even proficient in all of these to be successful at Cervest. You’ll work with a subset of these in your day-to-day. For this role, we’re looking for experienced fullstack product-engineers of all types with strong backend skills who have a passion for our mission, a good learning mindset, and a willingness to work in a cross-functional collaborative team.
What is the structure and culture of the team like?
Each product-engineering team at Cervest typically will have 4-8 Engineers, an Engineering manager, a Product Manager, and support from other roles depending on the domain of the team (e.g. Designers, Architects, etc.). You will report into the Engineering Manager for the team. We are a distributed, remote-first organization. Our employees are predominantly from the UK, but we have colleagues from around Europe and a few in North America as well. We have a strong culture of collaboration, empowerment, science, and inclusion. We don’t have a culture of micro-management. You will instead see one of support, coaching, facilitation and deep care.
As a rapidly scaling company on a mission, we are committed to ensuring that we support our team in developing in line with their aspirations and talents as well as continuing to develop our culture in line with our values.
We are a remote-first company and are hiring into the UK, Germany or Spain for this role. We are looking for a candidate who is comfortable working in a remote setting and with a diverse team distributed across multiple time zones. This job requires minimum travel for occasional regional or global team retreats only, using more sustainable transport methods (we’ll help with that).
