We’re looking for a dynamic and ambitious Business Development Manager to join our global commercial team.

In this role, you will guide large global organisations through the opaque world of nature-based carbon offsets and provide them with a unique alternative that gives more transparency, delivers greater confidence, and enables them to deliver positive climate impact at scale.

What does Sylvera do?

In less than a year, Sylvera has built a partnership with NASA, secured investment from Europe’s top VC fund, and built an extraordinary team.

Sylvera is bringing transparency to the opaque voluntary carbon markets by using satellite data and machine learning algorithms to accurately assess the performance of carbon offset projects. This transparency helps scale a global market primed for 15-100x growth in the coming 10 years.
