You are a highly-motivated, mission-driven environmental professional, with a strong science background, that is eager to take action against climate change as part of a leading carbon markets team. Your technical acumen and inherent motivation to protect our environment makes you eager to become an expert in greenhouse gas accounting and carbon offsets.
This is a full-time, exempt role within the Carbon Markets division. This position is located in our San Francisco, CA headquarters (this team is currently working in a work-from-home environment, aligned with SIP guidance).
Our team manages the 3Degrees portfolio of projects from registration through reporting and verification of emission reductions. The Associate will apply their physical science background to duties that focus substantially on data synthesis, development and implementation of project monitoring plans, quantification of credit volume, and compilation of technical reports and documentary evidence to demonstrate project compliance with the program requirements. This work culminates in third-party verification, where your work will be audited by industry experts. The Associate will assist other team members in the review of new offset methodologies and business opportunities, as well as providing technical and marketing support to our commercial team about the projects you will become familiar with as well as various market research and analysis.
In this role, you will work alongside other members of the Carbon Markets team to achieve their strategic goals. Success factors specific to this role include:
Within six months, master the basic concepts of carbon offsets and gain a thorough understanding of team operations including commercial aspects, which looks like the following: 1) managing 2-3 offset projects with some oversight and 2) conducting preliminary market research and analysis.
Within a year, you will be managing 4-6 offset projects with minimal oversight and are able to conduct research and market analysis with minimal oversight. You will have a strong understanding of the carbon offset programs and policies with a broad understanding of how to assess the viability and marketability of a new offset project.
