Office Manager (m/f/d) at Berlin Carbon-Tech Startup Apply your skills and commitment to combat global warming and become part of the global movement for climate action. **About Seqana:** One of the most powerful (and underutilized) solutions to climate change is capturing carbon in soils with regenerative agricultural practices. This approach has significantly more potential to have a climate impact than planting forests everywhere on Earth where forests could grow, and provides extensive side benefits for water retention, biodiversity, and many other sustainable development goals. Seqana is a newly venture-backed start-up, based in Berlin, working on this solution by building a machine learning platform for quantifying where, and how much, CO2 can be sequestered in soils around the world. Our product enables farmers, project developers, NGOs, and large corporations to profit from carbon sequestration practices, facilitating the flow of money into deployment of this approach. **The Role:** Our growing team is looking for an energetic Office Manager to help accelerate our growing company and to assist in the designing, building, and maintenance of an exciting office culture **Challenges you’ll own:** * You will design and facilitate Seqana’s next stage office management processes and culture.
