Deep Sky is the world’s first gigaton-scale carbon removal project developer. As a commercial venture, we build carbon removal infrastructure projects and sell carbon credits to remove billions of tonnes of CO2 from the Earth’s atmosphere.  

We have strong fundamentals:
- Expert at complex market systems and finding product-market fit
- Proven success in scaling startups and operating sophisticated businesses 
- Strong relationship with capital markets, government, and regional communities in Canada 

We envision a future where: 
- Tech-based carbon removal projects are the benchmark for premium durable and measurable carbon removal within a network of - mandatory and voluntary carbon credit markets
- The planet’s carbon equilibrium has been restored through both drastic emission reductions and large-scale carbon removal
- Carbon removal facilities are considered everyday infrastructure; appreciated for their vital service and light footprint

Deep Sky Deep Sky is at the forefront of combating climate change through innovative carbon removal technologies. Our mission is to develop and implement scalable solutions for direct air and ocean capture systems. We are embarking on an ambitious project, Deep Sky Labs, our innovation and commercialization facility designed to make a significant impact on carbon reduction. We will be using this facility to identify leading technologies to partner and scale to commercial production. Deep Sky One will be our first commercial facility designed to make a significant impact on carbon reduction. To achieve this milestone, we are seeking an experienced Senior Process Engineer to aid in the design and engineering of this state-of-the-art facility.
