In order to turn our vision into reality and to support our Research Team we are looking for an Expert in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) (f/m/x) to join us on either a parttime employment basis or as a freelancer (open to discussion). 

We are flexible in terms of employment and would also be open to working with freelance consultants on a permanent basis.

The job can be done remotely. However, if we are going to hire you as an employee you should be living either in Austria or Germany due to legal requirements.

Your main responsibility will be to guide the way forward in developing our internal impact estimator:

  • You will assist in strategically conceptualizing our internal impact estimator 
  • You will recommend data and methodologies for best calculating environmental and social footprints of products (groceries at the moment, later also FMCG, fashion etc.)
  • You will identify potential research institutes in the space, assess their suitability and methodology of LCI and CO2 databases and remain in close contact and exchange with them 
  • You will guide our decisions on outsourcing potential tasks to external providers or developing them inhouse 

Although this is how we’ve envisioned to approach this idea, we expect you to further shape the exact concept through your expertise and guide the development and implementation process towards the jointly developed vision.

We are looking for someone with professional experience in LCA and carbon accounting (PEF, ISO 140 44 etc.) and a good network in the LCA scene in Europe. German is a plus but not a must..

Why you will be excited to join us:

  • You will build an impact calculator from scratch and contribute to helping overcome our planet’s most pressing challenges
  • You will have the chance to further network in the LCA scene and position yourself even further as LCA Expert 
  • You will have the freedom in managing your way of working and structuring your deliverables in close coordination with a strong team by your side
  • You will join a quickly growing, motivated and highly engaged team of co-founders and early employees with a “get it done” mindset and the right motifs behind
  • You will work in an open and inclusive atmosphere with a huge focus on the personal and professional development of every team member
  • We value flexibility in every aspect with the option of working from home and flexible working hours - also in non-Covid times
  • If you prefer to come to the office: we are located at, a cool co-working space in the 7th district of Vienna, close to public transport and with all necessary requirements for a COVID safe working environment
