Carbon Data Analyst (m/f/x)

Munich, Bayern, GermanyProduct and Engineering

Job description

About Tanso 🌍

One key barrier to moving towards a climate-neutral economy is the lack of data availability and transparency across companies. Aiming to remove this structural barrier, we leverage the power of data and automation to accelerate the decarbonization of manufacturing companies. As a product-driven company, we’re using state-of-the-art technology and scientific research to tackle climate change the right way.

We’re developing the climate intelligence suite that enables a low-carbon economy - by automating processes in carbon accounting and laying the analytical foundation that is needed for effective emission reduction. If you are fascinated by developing technology that can help tackle climate change, we're the right place for you.

Your Objectives 🎯

Join our team and take an active role in accelerating the decarbonization of the industry. With the objective of leveraging carbon data to make inventories and carbon footprint analyses scientifically rigorous, intuitive, and as automated as possible, your main responsibility is the core engine of our product; the emission factor database. As a Carbon Data Analyst, we expect a strong background in PCF&LCA methodology and technical data skills, be it in Excel or Python. Your role includes supporting the product team with internal tooling and data models, as well as support for customers with research. You should have a strong curiosity for emissions in the manufacturing industry and supply chains, and the desire to bring carbon accounting from rough estimations to transparently disclosed science-based calculations, not only in theory but also in practice.

Your Responsibilities 📑

  • Continuously updating, expanding, and harmonizing our emission factor database of >15k scientifically validated emission factors available for our customers
  • Ensuring consistency, versioning, and correct scientific rigorousness in the calculation methodology of new emission factors and databases
  • Conducting and documenting LCA research and analyses for benchmarking and approximating emission factors and carbon footprints of e.g. industries or components
  • Identifying decarbonization use cases on corporate and product level, and developing suggestions for reduction alternatives (e.g. recycling rate, energy intensity, etc.)
  • Working closely with our product team to develop internal tooling and new product features to better leverage and automate carbon calculations and life cycle analyses
  • In close cooperation with founders, support cross-industrial initiatives for the generation of large-scale LCA & PCF databases in collaboration with internal and external partners

What We Offer 👐🏼

  • Equity package for ownership in the company as part of our VSOP program
  • A strong 360° feedback culture that strives for continuous improvement

  • A highly motivated environment where you can grow and learn by working on ambitious challenges together in cross-functional teams

  • A great, modern, and sustainable office in the middle of Munich

  • Loads of fun with amazing colleagues and team events you will not forget

  • 🧗‍♀️ Never let another person fail: We're always there for each other as a team. If it's urgent and important we make it a priority together.
  • 🗣️ Honesty and direct communication: Honesty isn't a one way street - it requires everyone to allow for a safe environment to grow together. Being bold but always humble and respectful.
  • 🤜 Ownership & At cause attitude: At cause culture - If it's broken, let's fix it. Embrace the things we're not good at yet and empower every team member to be best equipped to deliver at their best. We'll make (many) mistakes - Let's celebrate our f*ck ups but let's make sure that we flag issues early and offer full transparency on roadblocks.
