Our mission is to reverse climate change and return the atmosphere to 280 ppm CO₂, profitably. We convert waste biomass into carbon-rich bio-oil and inject it into permanent, underground storage as carbon removal, or reform the bio-oil to produce syngas for fossil-free steel.
Our carbon removal pathway took off in 2020 with initial purchases from customers like Stripe, Shopify & Microsoft. In 2021 and 2022 we delivered thousands of tons of carbon removal via off-the-shelf pathways, and also deployed our first R&D prototype pyrolyzer of our own. In the next 18 months, we'll build and deploy the next pyrolyzer revision, demonstrate our fossil-free ironmaking pilot, substantially expand our operations in Colorado and put thousands of tonnes of CO₂e underground.
We're looking to expand our team of ambitious creative and hands-on engineers, fabricators, operators, and forward-thinking humans. We value psychological safety and collaboration. We take calculated risks and don't sweep mistakes under the rug; instead, we pin them to the wall and learn from them. We value that everyone’s unique backgrounds and perspectives shape their work. We encourage you to read our company values.
Come help us reverse climate change. Gigatons or bust!
Charm is one of the leading permanent carbon dioxide removal companies, and our continued scale-up will require us to grow our team dramatically in the years ahead. We are looking for a Head of People to drive our recruiting, talent development, and human resources efforts. Carbon removal is so nascent that there is effectively no one with experience in the field, but to keep the climate below 1.5°C, IPCC models require the industry to grow to 10,000,000,000 tons CO₂ removal by 2050. This represents 70% year over year growth for the next 27 years, twice as fast as software. We will need to bring in talent from many other industries and universities, have a strong focus on talent development, and champion the climate tech industry as a whole.
This role will report to our CEO, be a member of our leadership team, and initially build a small team focused on HRBP, with largely external recruiting and people operations capacity.
The ideal candidate is world-class at culture-building, team building and planning, and learning & development. Experience with companies designing and building new hardware internally is a strong plus. Experience with hourly manufacturing/ field operations labor is a great bonus.
This role is located at either our San Francisco, CA Minifactory or our Fort Lupton, CO Miniforge, and is not open for remote work. The salary range is $180-255k per year, plus benefits described below.
What We Offer
· Stock options
· Health benefits (medical, dental, vision)
· Traditional and Roth 401(k)
· Paid time off, including parental leave
- A yearly professional development stipend
· Healthy snacks and lunches at a sweet workplace with lots of space inside and out
· A chance to pivot into a role in climate!
