Carbon Direct is decarbonizing the global economy. 

What is Carbon Direct? 
We are a team of scientists, engineers, and innovators with a shared goal of reducing atmospheric CO2 by scaling carbon management.

What do we do?
We operate two distinct businesses:
- Advisory & Software: We work with Fortune 500 corporate clients like Microsoft, Shopify, and Alaska Airlines to develop long-term carbon management plans. We’re also building a platform to facilitate the procurement, purchasing, and monitoring of carbon removals, helping make net zero emissions a reality for all businesses.
- Investments: We scale the supply of quality removals by investing in high-potential technologies vetted by science-backed sourcing and diligence. 

The science is clear: we need to pair CO2 emission reductions with removals to limit global temperatures to 1.5C, and the time to act is now. Our 40+ leading scientists have expertise in all areas of carbon management, from carbon footprinting to carbon removal procurement, and their insight guides our work.

Our team is data-centric, diverse, and purpose-driven. Join us on one of the greatest journeys of our lifetimes: the transition to net-zero.

The Role

Carbon Direct is building software for companies and their customers to act against climate change. This means we’re looking for designers who are excited to work with a team of climate scientists to make thoughtful product decisions and execute on beautiful design.


    • Execute on a variety of creative solutions across many surfaces including our website, social channels, and events.
    • Bring a level of polish and craft to the work on the Science team, from client and conference presentations to high-impact artifacts like our Criteria for high-quality carbon removal.
    • Maintain and evolve our visual identity and brand guidelines.


    • Have experience designing products that grapple with complex ideas.
    • Clearly spike in one avenue of your craft, be it visual polish, data visualization, or storytelling.
    • Are excited to apply yourself to fighting the climate crisis.
All that aside, the best way to learn more about designing at Carbon Direct is to speak with us. We don't want to put you in a box with a generic job description. We believe in hiring driven, curious people who are excited to apply themselves to fighting the climate crisis.
