Posted on Wednesday, April 12, 2023

Cervest is building the world's first open access AI-powered Climate Intelligence platform.

We’re a Certified B Corporation with a vision to build a climate intelligent world — one where everyone is able to use Climate Intelligence to adapt with climate change. By making Climate Intelligence open, democratised and transparent we will power a global Climate Intelligent Network™ that drives a chain reaction of climate intelligent decisions to protect the world’s critical assets, including our greatest asset — the planet.

Using our pioneering EarthScanTM product, anyone can discover how current and future climate events such as flooding, droughts, and extreme temperatures will impact their assets. EarthScan helps our customers confidently de-risk decisions, meet financial disclosure needs and improve the resilience of the assets they own, manage or rely on.

As a company, we are a pro-diversity, highly inclusive organization, committed to bringing together people of all backgrounds and enabling them to succeed. We know that a richly diverse team will help us achieve our mission sooner.

Why will you enjoy this opportunity?

Cervest has incredibly ambitious goals for 2023, and our Customer Success team is imperative to our success as we scale and sell to the world's largest and most asset-centric companies. We are already working with some of the most preeminent consulting companies in this space.

As a Customer Success Manager you will have a unique opportunity to build a career in a remote-first, category-building, fast-paced, B2B scale-up organization.

As a member of the Customer Success team, you will be deeply embedded into the commercial engine of the organization, working closely with the Sales, Marketing, and Product Marketing teams, as well as colleagues across Product Management, Engineering, Science, Legal, and our Executive Team.

We are a distributed, remote-first company, hiring across Europe, the USA and beyond. We are looking for a candidate who is comfortable working in a fully remote setting and with a diverse team, spread across multiple time zones. This job requires minimal travel for occasional regional or global team retreats, customer meetings or events, and a variety of other opportunities, using more sustainable transport methods (we’ll help with that).

We have a strong culture of collaboration, empowerment and inclusion. We don’t have a culture of micro-management, so self-starters who are comfortable managing ambiguity thrive best at Cervest. You will instead experience a supportive culture where coaching, facilitation, and deep care are embedded into company norms.

We are a remote-first company and are hiring across the USA into the following states - New York, DC, Maryland, Texas, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.


As a rapidly-scaling company on a mission, we are committed to ensuring that we support our team in developing in line with their aspirations and talents, as well as continuing to develop company culture alongside our values.
