Software Development Engineer

Job description


The climate era is among us and the health of our planet is in our hands. This is the defining moment of our time. How we live, work, eat and move has to change if we’re to solve climate change.

One of the solutions to solving this problem is in the air we breathe.

Skytree harnesses carbon through the power of decentralized direct air capture technology. We believe by creating modular solutions to capture carbon at customer sites we can accelerate the health of our planet and society. That is why we created one of the worlds smallest and simplest carbon capture processes to transform how food is grown, improve the way we drive electric as well as provide clean air across the buildings we work in.

Born out of the European Space Agency (ESA), during the development of a CO2 scrubber, space scientists evaluated over 50 sorbents. Skytree founder, Max Beaumont, was a system engineer on this team and spun out the technology through the ESA incubator program 'ESA-BIC'. With a decade of research & development, the company has since registered 14 patents across US, Europe and China.

Today our decentralized direct air capture technology reduces emissions from supply chains, closes the carbon loop, saves energy and provides a viable pathway to a smarter carbon future. That is why we are on a mission to change people’s relationship with carbon, fast tracking the health of society and our planet.
