Building a Purpose-Driven Team

February 10, 2021

Our purpose-driven, evolutionary organization, Manifest Climate is at an inflection point. We are scaling rapidly to meet the demands of a global market faced with a climate crisis, calling for an urgent transition to a low-carbon, more resilient economy. For businesses, this means unprecedented pressure to govern and disclose climate-related risks and opportunities.

Driven by Manifest Climate’s single purpose—to shine a light on climate-related risk and opportunities and advance strategies to thrive—we are building a climate intelligence platform backed by experts and technology.  

We help demystify climate-related financial disclosures by decoding the leading reporting frameworks and surfacing industry best practices. This empowers organizations to tell their climate narrative within their organizations, to outside investors and the capital markets. Businesses need to explain how they are strategically considering climate-related risk, aligning with net-zero mandates and the goals of the Paris Agreement. We help organizations understand how climate trends impact their core business and strategically manage and disclose their plans. A great deal of our work currently happens in strategic consulting engagements, and increasingly these insights are being translated into our scalable software product. Our clients include some of the world’s most prominent financial institutions and public companies across sectors like real estate, consumer products, mining, and telecommunications, to name a few.

As we level up to launch a product in the market and continue to provide top-notch advisory services to our global clients, we need to grow our team. We want the brightest minds to help us, individuals who are inspired to contribute meaningfully to Manifest Climate’s purpose. We are in the midst of a global climate crisis, and knowing this is not enough. By joining Manifest Climate, you empower organizations around the world to take measurable actions and adopt strategies that will help bend the curve towards climate resilience. They will do it with help from the product you build, the advice you provide, the recommendations you design, and the data you analyze.

If you are an exceptionally skilled and experienced human wanting—needing—to do more meaningful work, joining us may prove to be incredibly professionally, personally, and socially gratifying. Few organizations offer the type of work that satisfies that longing in the way we do. This is work that has—and will continue to have—a significant impact on our world’s future. Not everyone at Manifest Climate needs to be a climate expert, but everyone should believe in their heart, not just their head, that the issue is both urgent and essential.

Manifest Climate fosters a culture of dive in and do. From founding partners Laura Zizzo and Jeremy Greven to the newest member, everyone is poised to roll up their sleeves and get the work done. Passion, curiosity, self-awareness, humility, and the motivation to take action to embody the nature of who Manifest Climate is as an organization and our team as individuals.

To support our growth, mission, and work, we are hiring for a number of positions across our Content Development, Data Science, Software, Marketing, and Climate Strategy teams. Whether you check every box or have non-traditional experience, the drive to make a difference, regardless of how your talents are defined, is what interests us. 

At Manifest Climate, we have big ambitions. We believe that better decisions will be made if decision-makers, and capital markets, have access to relevant climate-related insights. As the economy transitions to net-zero, we see our role as more than just a job—we see ourselves as stewards of long-term business success and positive climate action. We invite you to learn more about us here and encourage anyone with a doer mentality to express their interest here.
