About Patch

To achieve real climate progress, businesses must decarbonize their operations. Some emissions are unavoidable, and that’s where Patch comes in. Patch's API connects carbon removal and renewable energy suppliers directly with the businesses that need them most with just a few lines of code.

We're a small team of successful startup veterans building a category-defining business in an industry the world deeply needs. We're backed by Andreessen Horowitz, Coatue, Version One, Pale Blue Dot, and are founded by the same team who helped take Sonder from 0 to 2B.

Patch's API-as-a-marketplace services two groups:

We put climate initiatives on autopilot by programmatically offsetting CO₂ emissions. Our API makes it easy for businesses to launch features like carbon-neutral delivery, rides, payments, and more.

We’ve partnered with the best carbon removal scientists and developers in the world to build a network of high-quality projects. We’re aggregating demand to these projects so they can scale the amount of CO₂ they’re able to remove to help us reach our climate goals.

We're looking for an exceptional engineering leader to build a team of results-oriented engineers and lead the design and deployment of Patch’s core platform primitives and API products.

In this role, you'll partner directly with Patch's CEO as the sole point-of-contact for the engineering organization, responsible for technical roadmap deployment, product feedback, and technical market penetration strategies. You’ll build Patch's engineering team and sub-culture, develop best practices, and solve problems that delight Patch's customers and make a positive impact on the planet.

We are based in San Francisco but are open to remote candidates for this position.

  • Hire and scale an inclusive engineering team committed to technical excellence and delivering results.
  • Develop strategic, high-impact technical roadmaps and meet rapid delivery goals for core products and features.
