Business Development HiWi 

Apply your skills and commitment to combat global warming and become part of the global movement for climate action.

About Seqana:

One of the most powerful (and underutilized) solutions to climate change is capturing carbon in soil via regenerative agriculture practices – this approach has the potential for several times more climate impact than planting forests everywhere on Earth where forests can grow, and provides extensive side benefits.

Seqana is a newly venture-backed start-up, based in Berlin, working on this solution by building a machine learning platform for quantifying where, and how much, CO2 can be sequestered in soils around the world. Our product enables farmers, project developers, NGOs, and large corporations to profit from carbon sequestration practices, facilitating the flow of money into deployment of this approach.

Awesomeness you bring:

  • Ability to occasionally commute to Berlin 
  • Proactive can-do attitude and good communication skills
  • Quick learning, adaptability, and openness to change
  • Native German speaker with strong English communication skills
  • Prior job experience is a plus

Benefits you can expect:

  • Be part of our highly motivated team
  • Chance to learn about a growing industry
