CarbonCloud is a Gothenburg-based, venture capital-backed, Software-as-a-Service, a climate tech startup in the food domain. That means we aim really high with what we want the service to achieve because the problem we are addressing is that large, important, and urgent.

What your workdays could look like

The task which will occupy most of the time is to make calculations. Use analysis technique to assess environmental impacts associated with all the stages of a product's life, which is from raw material extraction through materials processing, manufacture, and distribution. So, modeling processed ingredients from agricultural goods through the production process up until the factory gate. This includes finding relevant input information, calculating mass and energy flows, and documenting. Work will include identifying, classifying, and quantifying ingredients and assigning appropriate data sets based on a Life Cycle Assessment. This means researching all kinds of food products and packaging material. This could include searching for information in scientific papers, scanning supplier web pages, white papers, etc.

We also take time off, have lunch, and do fika together at the office, and also remotely. Some go for a run or the outdoors gym together during lunch. We do getaways on work hours. You have a ton of bright and kind colleagues who love a good discussion on a nerdy subject.

Perks & Benefits

It's still early in the CarbonCloud journey towards a global network of climate footprints for food, so we don't have fussball tables, free snack machines or a barista. The coffee machine is actually two stairs down, so walking there almost counts as a workout. We are offering some other kind of perks, that we hope matter even more.

  • Work on the biggest issue of our generation

    Your time is precious. Spend it where it matters.

  • Lots of room to shape your work

    We expect You to know You best. In general, you get to pick your tools and decide how to make the most of them.

  • Get better together

    You'll be working closely with motivated people that joined the company since they want to change the world. But we are doing something very new, and we are figuring it out together as we go. Sharing mistakes and learnings makes us better at this.

Workplace & Culture


Working here is a great way to try out new things and push your comfort zone, if you want to. We don't have a specialist in every area yet, counting on the team being flexible and stepping in wherever needed. Some of us stick to our ordinary job descriptions, but we also have developers trying out sales, and designers doing marketing.

We are flexible with hours and remote work where needed, trusting everyone to do their best to work in a way that's effective. We're currently doing a mixed setup with some people working remotely full time. We are looking forward to working together at the office after the pandemic!
