    • You have superior verbal and written communication skills in English. (Bonus points for knowledge of other Asian languages (e.g. Chinese, Japanese))
    • Experience in the shipping, aviation, heavy transport, or trading industries is highly valued.

The interview process

At CHOOOSE, we prioritize transparency throughout our interview process. If your qualifications look like a fit, we’ll begin with 1-2 introductory conversations where you'll have the chance to discuss your experience and learn more about our company. The second phase varies depending on the role and will involve a practical exercise for you to show your work. You’ll receive written instructions for the exercise in advance, and we’ll then schedule a time to discuss. The third and final phase consists of a one-on-one conversation with a member of our executive team. The process should take approx. 3-4 weeks. While we strive to keep to this timeline, the occasional adjustment may occur; we’re focused on ensuring for enough time to get to know one another.

Pay, perks, & more

We offer a competitive salary, the option to participate in our employee equity program, flexible work hours, and access to 'Spaces' coworking space. Come join a fun and supportive team dedicated to advancing climate solutions and tackling significant challenges.
