We are Thrust Carbon 🌳 🌳 🌳
Thrust Carbon is one of the world's foremost sustainability companies, making it effortless for the travel industry to get to net zero. Despite being a team of 8, we currently power sustainability solutions for over $52bn of annual travel spend, we are profitable, and we are expanding rapidly.
Joining Thrust Carbon means you will have a direct impact on the climate disaster currently facing the world. The footprint of your work will prevent hundreds of thousands of tonnes of CO2e from entering the atmosphere.
We are expanding our technical team, offering remote or hybrid working roles (office space in Bristol/London 1-2 days per week) to curious developers who share our vision and culture.
