Watershed is a software platform for running a world-class climate program. We measure our success in the carbon reduction achievements of our customers. We are looking for team members who love product-building, want to work hard at a mission-oriented startup, and will collaborate with us in shaping the culture of a growing team.
We have offices in San Francisco and London and remote team members across the US and Europe. We hope that you'll be interested in joining us!
Accurately measuring carbon emissions is fundamental to the success of corporate climate programs. Powered by the latest climate science, Watershed is compiling an exhaustive carbon emissions dataset, engineering best-in-class calculation software, and building a team of Carbon Data Analysts to own the end-to-end measurement experience for our customers. Measurement is both the first step in a customer’s climate journey and their first experience with Watershed, making this the foundation of not only a company’s climate program, but also their relationship with Watershed.
We’re looking for a manager to lead a team of Carbon Data Analysts in this core part of Watershed’s operation. You and your team will own the end-to-end measurement process and relentlessly improve our practices, tooling, and user experience. You’ll represent your team in conversations with Watershed’s product, go-to-market, and engineering teams, and help guide the strategic direction of the carbon data organization as we grow and scale our business.
As one of the early managers in a fast growing company, you’re setting culture for both your team and Watershed as a whole. You, along with the rest of Watershed’s leadership and people teams, are responsible for building a diverse, inclusive, and hard-working organization.
You might be a fit if you:
- Have built and led teams; bonus points for technical and customer-facing teams.
- Have excellent communication skills, including an ability to effectively communicate with both business and technical stakeholders.
- Have experience writing SQL and/or working in a data-heavy, technical environment.
- Love to roll up your sleeves and get into the details of the data and the business.
- Are passionate about solving climate change and excited to contribute to doing so at a fast paced startup.
What’s your approach to remote work?
Watershed is hiring team members on all US and EU time zones, and we’re committed to growing a long-term distributed team. We have hub offices in San Francisco and London, and remote team members from Oregon to New Jersey to Ireland. There may be certain jobs that need to be in San Francisco / London or certain locations, and will be specifically noted in the job description or in conversations.
What are Watershed’s return-to-office plans?
We reopened our San Francisco office in June 2021, and treasure the energy and collaboration that comes from working together in person. We’re particularly lucky to have a great rooftop outdoor space, where we can gather for lunch, one-on-one’s, and the occasional outdoor whiteboarding session. We’re also investing deeply to support remote as a first-class hub, with regular Zoom social times, an emphasis on transparency and written artifacts, and periodic offsites to gather everybody in person.
We’re a COVID-cautious company. The office is open to vaccinated team members with regular testing, and we’ll continue to pay close attention to case rates to ensure it’s safe for everybody.
Do I need X years of experience, climate experience, etc.?
No, Watershed is hiring team members with a broad range of prior experience, and we’d love to talk with you regardless of yours. We prioritize mentorship on the job. There maybe certain jobs that will need X years of experience, and will be specifically noted in the job description.
What’s the interview process like?
It starts the same for every candidate: getting to know the team members through 1 to 2 conversations about Watershed, your experience, and your interests. Next steps can vary by role, but usual next steps are a skill or experience screen (e.g. a coding interview for an engineer, a portfolio review for a designer, deeper experience call for other roles) which leads to a (usually virtual) onsite interview after that if the screens go well. We prioritize transparency and lack of surprise throughout the process.
