Junior Fullstack Javascript Engineer

Who we are

The ClimateClever team helped to certify the first carbon-neutral school in Australia back in 2012. Since then, they have been on a mission to help more schools take action on climate change. The program was launched nationally in January 2018 but was developed based on years of research and pilots. The ClimateClever Initiative is powered by innovative, data-driven and evidence-based software that enables schools and their communities to measure, compare, manage and reduce their carbon footprint and utility costs. Our tools and team are also helping to educate, upskill and empower the next generation to become leaders in creating a low carbon future. ClimateClever is a social enterprise and gives 10% of its profits back to schools in disadvantaged communities.

We are a small team of five - all very passionate about making a difference. We have initially targeted schools as they provide an exceptional opportunity to create significant societal change. A few weeks ago, we launched a home version of the platform and later on in the year will be releasing a small business version.
