Senior Product Manager of Carbon Supply
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.
Indigo will create carbon credits (offsets) by working with farmers to adopt regenerative farming practices. We have several teams that interact directly with growers: Inside Sales Representatives, Account Managers, and Agronomists. This role is the point person to interact with all three of these teams to represent our Carbon Product. When a famer signs up for Indigo Carbon, they are signing up for an Indigo product. This person is responsible for ensuring carbon is a fantastic experience for our farmer customers.
This role will report to the Head of Carbon Operations.
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
