ABOUT PLEDGE

Pledge makes it simple for businesses of every size to understand and manage the climate impact of their products. By providing tools and infrastructure, we automate the delivery of climate solutions - such as footprint measurement, reduction and offsetting - into customer journeys.

We're on a mission to make businesses climate aware and help accelerate their transition to net zero. Pledge was founded in 2021 by early employees of Revolut and the co-founder of Freetrade.

WHY JOIN PLEDGE?

  • As an early team member, you’ll play a leading role in shaping the direction of our product and go-to-market.

  • Work on a real-world problem in a stimulating work environment which puts a strong emphasis on ownership, integrity and delivery.

  • Proven team of operators who have previously co-founded companies such as Freetrade as well as help scale Revolut since the early days to become one of Europe’s biggest ever private tech group.

  • Strong customer traction and backed by leading B2B and climate investors (Visionaries Club, Chris Sacca's Lowercarbon Capital, Breyer Capital and Zinal Growth, the investment arm of the founder & CEO of Checkout.com).


ABOUT THE ROLE

Drive Pledge’s sustainability efforts and operate as a subject matter expert on both carbon offsetting projects and removal technologies as well as in advising companies on their transition to net zero. From developing key product requirements to engaging with relevant industry stakeholders, you'll position the Company as a sustainability thought leader. Our success depends on our ability to become a trusted industry standard.

Pledge works with B2B customers across a range of sectors including logistics, travel and e-commerce amongst others.

  • Experience in a fast-paced environment, ideally high growth startup experience

  • Ideally, you have an established network in the space with connections to peers at other companies, regulators and other public bodies as well as relevant international organizations
