About the role:

We’re in the business of engineering timely and high signal connections between people to advance the speed of climate innovation. As a talent associate you will work to match-make our ecosystem of members (folks who are looking for new opportunities within climate) and our ecosystem of companies who are looking to grow their teams. You will help identify and surface great people to fill full-time, part-time and advisorship roles, and help the MCJ team make opportunistic connections.


  1. 70% - Identifying members of the MCJ network who have relevant skill set for opportunities within MCJ’s portfolio companies
  2. 20% - Proactively track high-priority roles within portfolio companies and surface to the portfolio support team
  3. 10% - Working with the MCJ team to proactively build our talent network around key skill sets, and identify new partnership opportunities to do so.

Ideal skill set:

  • You live and breathe talent. You’re driven by a desire to move IQ points into climate solutions.
  • You have 1-2 years of experience at a fast paced, venture backed startup working in a talent sourcing and talent operations function OR 1-2 years working in recruitment and sourcing within agencies.
  • You have experience and have built strong intuition for what “good” looks like for technical and operational roles –e.g., Mechanical, Software, Hardware, Supply chain, Program management, BizOps.
  • You like working with tools like Airtable (or other similar relational databases), Affinity (or other similar CRMs) and LinkedIn recruiter features.
  • You have experience working with AI-based tools (not a must but definitely a bonus!)
  • You have been building and executing on good sourcing best practices.
  • You have a love for detail orientation across data and written communication.
