Job Details

About CervestBacked by leading VCs in Europe and the US, Cervest is a pioneering climate tech company building the world's first AI-powered Climate Intelligence platform. Climate Intelligence is business intelligence for quantifying climate risk. Our mission to embed Climate Intelligence in all key business decisions to ensure the long term resilience of our most important assets, including the one we all share - our planet. Globally, businesses and governments are realising that quantifying the risk and opportunity posed by an increasingly uncertain climate is critical to their success. Cervest is at the forefront of addressing this need. As a company, we are a pro-diversity, highly inclusive organisation, committed to bringing together people of all backgrounds and enabling them to succeed. We know that a richly diverse team will help us achieve our mission sooner.

Our personalised climate intelligence offers an interconnected and unified assessment of an enterprise's climate risk across all its assets for any timescale and any scenario, anywhere on Earth, that can be integrated into all business decisions. The result better, climate-secure decisions in real-time for the days, years and decades to come.
