Patch is building the infrastructure to power a climate positive economy and scale carbon removal. Businesses can leverage our API to automatically calculate their footprint and make any transaction carbon-neutral. Offset projects use our consumer-grade platform to manage their business, find new customers and scale their technology.

We're a small team of successful startup veterans building a category-defining business in an industry the world deeply needs. We're backed by Andreessen Horowitz, Version One, Pale Blue Dot, and are founded by the same team who helped take Sonder from 0 to 2B.

JOB DESCRIPTION

We're looking for exceptional software engineers to continue to build upon Patch's core API platform.

There's too much carbon in the atmosphere. If emissions were halted today, what's up there (and in our oceans) will keep our planet warming for centuries to come. The world needs to reduce emissions and scale carbon removal technologies to mitigate and ultimately reverse climate change.

Responsibilities

First and foremost we're looking for people who are excited about what we're doing — you don't need to know anything about carbon removal, but should be excited to learn. We're building in an entirely new space, so you'll be able to use your creativity to help us solve problems and delight customers.

The engineering challenges ahead of us:

  1. Standardize the Unstructured
    Patch supports a wide variety of carbon removal and carbon offsets solutions. All of these technologies have different types of data and information to quantify their impact. Your job is to help us standardize the data this ecosystem with the end goal of enabling our users to develop a deep understanding of carbon markets.
  2. Build for Scale
    Even in the most ambitious decarbonization scenarios, humanity will need to remove billions of tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere for the coming decades. This will require 100s of billions of API requests per year. Fighting climate changes requires building software systems built for scale.
  3. Build for the Unknown
    Nothing like Patch has ever been built before. This means there is no playbook on which features or product should be built. This ambiguity is an opportunity for product-minded software engineers to take control of our roadmap and chart a course on how to have the greatest impact.

INTERVIEW PROCESS

  1. Meet us and learn about Patch You'll first talk to Brennan on a 45 minute call. The goal of this conversation is to get to know you and mutually explore if we might be a good fit for each other. You'll learn more about Patch and have a chance to ask questions about our company, team culture, and product.
  1. Take Home Challenge We'll send you a small prompt for you to answer demonstrate your programming skills. No whiteboards, no live programming. This challenge is meant for you to show off how you normally work. It shouldn't take longer than 3-4 hours to complete.
  1. Virtual Code Review Once you've completed the challenge, you'll add a few Patch engineers to your repo and we'll review your code. Once reviewed, we'll hop on one last 45 minute call to discuss high level trade offs made during the challenge and how your might approach the solution differently in a production environment.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

Patch's core mission is to slow the Earth's heating. Climate change is a problem that affects all people, with some of our most vulnerable communities being hit the hardest. Given the global nature of the problem we're addressing, we're committed to make sure that the team we build to address climate change is representative of all those who are affected.
