Role Overview

Carbon Equity is seeking an experienced senior full stack engineer for our engineering team. In this role, it will be your mission to develop our Climate Investing Platform. An investing platform where people can see and learn more about how their capital is funding pioneering climate tech companies. You'll be involved in the entire product development lifecycle including the design, development, deployment, and maintenance of new and existing features.

Note: We are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace where everyone feels valued and respected. As part of this commitment, we encourage individuals from all backgrounds and experiences to apply for our open positions, even if you don't meet all of the qualifications listed in the job description.

What will you be building?

Our Climate Investing Platform, which serves 2 main purposes:

Engage our customers

Investing is not a single act of transferring money. It is all about being involved in your portfolio companies’ progress and learning how they grow and create real world impact. The platform will update investors about:

  • New investments made into companies
  • New funding rounds raised by companies
  • The impact their investments are making
  • Other portfolio-related news

Increase accessibility

Private equity has been notoriously paper-based and inaccessible. We are streamlining that process to reduce servicing costs and inform our customers on a continuous basis. It allows us to serve customers that would otherwise not be viable (costly) to serve; plus it will allow us to serve customers that we would otherwise not be able to reach:

  • Financial: the platform will facilitate capital calls (transferring money) and provide insights into the current value of the investments
  • Onboarding: the platform will need to facilitate a seamless onboarding (KYC/AML check) which is currently chopped into different steps
  • Admin: the platform will need to establish API connections with our external fund admin who will provide most financial data.
  • Opportunities: the platform will facilitate customers to discover new opportunities and reinvest their profit into more pioneering tech.

Who You Are

  • You are able to deliver quality features without much supervision while keeping the rest of the team in the loop.
  • You have extensive technical know-how to choose the proper level of architectural complexity for every step along the way and work with technical service providers accordingly.
  • You have broad hands-on product development skills to resolve any bottleneck and prioritize shipping over everything else.
  • You have the ability to translate user stories into technical and architectural requirements.
  • You're curious about new technologies and you're excited to find ways to implement them in your work.
  • You are a strong communicator who can collaborate with team members to solve real problems.

Experience and Qualifications

  • You’re a full-stack engineer with at least 6 years of hands-on experience with Python and Django
  • You have good knowledge of front-end web technologies (HTML, JS, CSS)
  • You have experience with relational databases
  • You have knowledge of deploying web services

What’s in it for you?

  • You’re part of the mission — that's why we offer all of our employees a stock option plan based on experience
  • Competitive salary at a fast growing climate fintech. Salary based on experience and profile: 80k-95k.
  • Lots of room to bring your own ideas and the mandate to work on them
  • Hybrid work culture with flexible hours, given that you are at the office at least once a week
  • Headquarters located in the heart of Amsterdam, close to the Nieuwmarkt
  • Full-time position
  • 25 holiday days
