Carbon Business Intelligence Analyst at Indigo
What if nature could be harnessed to help farmers sustainably feed the planet? Since 2014, Indigo has questioned agriculture's full value chain to improve grower profitability, environmental sustainability, and consumer health. The company’s scientific discoveries and digital innovations have amplified new value from soil to sale, benefiting more than 10,000 growers to date. Indigo is also the company behind The Terraton Initiative, a global effort to drawdown one trillion tons of atmospheric carbon dioxide by unlocking the potential of agricultural soils. In 2019, Indigo was ranked #1 on CNBC’s Disruptor 50 list. Headquartered in Boston, MA, Indigo has additional offices in Memphis, TN; Research Triangle Park, NC; Sydney, Australia; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Basel, Switzerland; and São Paulo, Brazil.
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.
Indigo Carbon 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.
There is not yet a carbon market in the world that is transacting the volume of carbon the world needs. There are carbon markets, and they are doing good work, but they have not hit the scale we all need them to. We aspire to meet that need. The hurdles we face are numerous, they are dynamic, and they aren’t easy. The Carbon Business Intelligence Analyst will bring structure and clear governance to the collection and presentation of carbon data. We’re looking for an emerging data leader excited by tackling tough, inspiring problems and passionate about creating rigorous data systems at scale.
This role is essential. A carbon credit or a carbon offset is fundamentally a data product. You can’t see it, touch it, or feel it. If we say “this smallholder farmer in India removed 4 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere”, that claim is only as good as the data we have to support it and how easily, accessibly, and clearly we package and communicate those data. The Carbon Business Intelligence Analyst will be the data guru responsible for the quality, rigor, and credibility of our carbon data.
The Carbon Business Intelligence Analyst will lead efforts to enhance, monitor, and manage carbon data quality and reporting to the rest of the business. Analysts will comfortable talking with agronomists and growers about the realities of gathering on-farm data and the metrics that matter to growers and Indigo. Analysts will be comfortable collaborating with business leaders to understand the carbon team strategy and build out reports and dashboards that will provide insights for data-based decision making. Successful candidates will work with stakeholders to identify high value reporting needs, present data in a compelling and accessible manner, and connect data results to owners and actions across the company.
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
