About Tanso 🌍
One key barrier to move towards to 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 machine learning to form the basis for a data-driven 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 a SaaS platform, which will make sustainability accounting as integrated, transparent, and verifiable as financial accounting and enable a low-carbon economy. If you are fascinated by developing technology that can help tackle climate change, we're the right place for you.
Your Mission 🚀
In your role, you help the founding team with building up the company from scratch. As a key contributor in the first days of the company, you will experience the exciting phase from building our company from 5 to 10 people right after closing our pre-seed round. This challenge requires prioritizing what to build when, preparing our company to scale to 20+ employees in the near future. We therefore are searching for an entrepreneurial generalist ready to tackle this challenge to assist our founding team. You are ideally someone who wants to start her/his own company in the future, ready to take over full responsibility for crucial projects on bringing Tanso to the next level.

- Work on strategic projects with our Sales- and Product-team: Work together with our CEO and the founder's associate on managing our sales pipeline, convincing new customers and preparing key documents for sales and investor reporting.

Our Values 💚
- 🕊️ Trust in people: We trust that people are by default working for the right reasons and having good intentions. If our hiring process is strong, our team member will put in the work necessary to navigate around unknown territory (= growth mindset beats hard skill).
- 🧠. Learning culture: Direct, actionable and frequent feedback (among each other, upwards, downwards). Embrace the unknown (if you ask a good question, it's likely this already makes you the person with the most knowledge about the topic).
- 🧗♀️ 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.
- 💯. We don't fill jobs, we hire great people: Transparent hiring process (Timeline, Process, Expectations, Reference Calls). Make every hire feel special (Job Offer, Communication, Onboarding Process).
- 🤜 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.
