Full-stack developer

Rize ag is hiring!

About

Rize's mission is to fuel the transition to a sustainable and low carbon agriculture.

By generating carbon credits on their behalf, we provide financing for farmers who adopt sustainable farming practices that lead to increased carbon storage in soils & decreased emissions. We sell those carbon credits to European corporates that are looking to enhance their climate strategy by supporting local high quality carbon offsets.

Today, climate finance is still massively underdeveloped, especially for agriculture. Rize’s scientific and technological approach improves the traceability and transparency needed to set up robust financing schemes for sustainable agriculture. By leveraging the automations that come through technology we also turn economics in our favor; making carbon financing easily accessible to all European farms irrespective of their size.

We know that the journey to develop carbon financing for agriculture will be filled with plenty of exciting challenges, as we will be setting new standards for climate finance, developing new impact monitoring tools, and exploring the horizons offered by sustainable agriculture. Do you want to be at the heart of an impact project that will shape the future of agriculture, by applying the best of tech, and within a high potential start-up?
