Head of Marketing
Climate Neutral is a fast growing non-profit poised to become the trusted consumer standard for zero net carbon emissions. We’re addressing one of the world’s most urgent challenges with a common sense solution that has the potential to grow and achieve large impact. As part of the core team leading this small start-up, you will harness our existing momentum and accelerate it even further, applying artful communication to create understanding and build demand, smart strategy to identify the most fruitful opportunities for growth, and hands-on creativity and technical aptitude to get it all done. You will work collaboratively with our passionate team and autonomously to bring this exciting work to life within our small and fast-moving organization.
About Climate Neutral
Climate Neutral works to decrease global carbon emissions by providing a trusted net zero carbon certification for brands. In our first year we certified over 140 brands across fashion, food, cosmetics, software, and other industries. Certified companies must measure and offset the carbon emissions from making and delivering their products and services. They use our label to show their consumers that they are working to halt climate change. To simplify the certification process, we built an easy-to-use software tool called the Brand Emissions Estimator (BEE).
Climate Neutral is looking for a head of marketing who will build demand among both consumers and brands for our Climate Neutral Certified label. You would oversee all aspects of marketing, including digital and offline marketing, communications, media strategy, and brand engagement. This job involves both planning and executing in a startup environment. You would play a central role in ensuring Climate Neutral achieves its ambitious impact goals, which are measured in the number of tonnes of greenhouse gases we certify.

- Developing and maintaining a high impact marketing plan
- Managing our brand identity and keeping it fresh, relevant, and effective
- Developing and launching creative and bold marketing campaigns
- Building a social media presence to engage with consumers, businesses, and partners
- Telling our story effectively to many different audiences

Climate Neutral is looking for people who believe in our mission and would like to lend their talents to help us grow in these strange and unfortunately difficult times. As we continue to fundraise actively, we aim to keep our momentum going by engaging people to work on smaller projects on a volunteer basis.
Give us a shout if you are interested in helping and have the skills required to do a knock-out job.
Research and Analysis
We have a series of projects that require digging up technical data and info and using it to tell our story. It would primarily serve our consumer-facing content. If you like climate, energy, and greenhouse gas data, love spreadsheets and translating numbers into charts and takeaways, you'll get a kick out of this work. Some of our needs would support the development of our editorial content, such as articles, blog posts, and social media fodder. We also need support with continued development of our footprinting tool, the BEE. This work would not require programming or graphic design, since that could be done under a separate effort.
Key skills: strong quantitative chops and spreadsheet wizardry, plus a wicked ability to do research, especially on climate and energy topics
Web Portal Development
It's a ton of work to track our brands through the certification process. It requires a lot of document and data collection, back-and-forth, content management, nudging...none of which is fun to do with email and spreadsheets. We envision a certified company portal that tracks the process end-to-end, with the ability to capture information at key steps along the way, report (internally) on the status of our companies in the process, and generally make our process more organized.
Key skills: web development (using Webflow), project management, workflow development
Salesforce Platform Configuration
We have loads of company contact information, footprint information, certification data, and other bits and pieces we need to track as our small team works with large numbers of brands. We use Salesforce to track it all now, but our configuration is far from perfect, and we could use some help from a Salesforce wizard setting up a few more forms, reconfiguring records, that sort of thing.
Key skills: Salesforce administration
We want to add videos to our content library but don't have the animation and editing skills. Our videos will be short, with a combination of live action and animation, and will stick to our core visual identity.
Key skills: video production, animation, scripting
