At Indigo, our mission is: harnessing nature to help farmers sustainably feed the planet. We started down this path leveraging microbiology, but we have quickly expanded across the entire agriculture supply chain.

IndigoCarbon and the broader Terraton Initiative is the most explicit expression of our sustainability goals yet. Our goal is to remove 1 trillion tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, sequester it in agricultural soils, and by doing that, improve the health of the soil, the profitability of farmers, the quality of our food, and the health of our planet. This goal is massive, and it will require a diverse team to make it happen. If you’ve been looking for a company that moves at the speed of Silicon Valley and is explicitly taking on climate change, we’d love to hear from you.

This role is taking on a critical piece of the puzzle. There is a lot of momentum around climate change, but too many governments and companies ask themselves, “Are consumers willing to pay for sustainability claims?” At Indigo, we think the answer is YES, and our GM of the Carbon Consumer Platform will be responsible for that. You will own the P&L for the entire consumer-facing side of the business. To drive consumer demand, we are investing in a tech-enabled, multi-faceted platform to allow consumers to enjoyably and easily understand and offset their carbon footprint. No one has ever done this before. We need a leader who will help us set up this tech product platform, embrace the consumer perspective, and learn rapidly from both our successes and failures. In this role, you will act as the General Manager of the business, driving a successful P&L statement. You would report to Ed Smith, VP and Head of Carbon Markets and the Terraton Initiative.

The company is headquartered in Boston, MA, with additional offices in Memphis, TN, Research Triangle Park, NC, Sydney, Australia, Buenos Aires, Argentina, and São Paulo, Brazil. www.indigoag.com
