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, New York and London and remote team members across the US and Europe. We hope that you’ll be interested in joining us!
Watershed is on a mission to help companies measure, reduce, remove, and report their emissions. Carbon accounting, lifecycle assessment and reductions modeling are the heart of our platform and we are building a world class team of experts to build these capabilities. We are looking for an experienced manager to help lead this work.
As leader of the team will be responsible for recruiting world class climate experts and guiding them in doing their best work at Watershed. You’ll work closely with our software engineering and data science teams, and directly with customers to solve hard measurement questions as they arise. You will set the vision and roadmap for methodology development at Watershed and the measurement and modeling capabilities we offer to our users.
You might be a fit if you:
- Have led teams of experts within fast growing tech companies
- Have experience building data products or leading data teams
- Have a strong technical, scientific or research background — bonus points for masters or Ph.D
- Experience in life cycle assessment and/or corporate greenhouse gas footprinting a major plus
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, New York 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 / New York / 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 and we’ll continue to pay close attention to case rates to ensure it’s safe for everybody.
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.Diversity & Inclusivity:
CULTIVATE A DIVERSE TEAM — We strive to build a company where people from all backgrounds feel welcomed and empowered to lead and succeed.
