Our mission is to organise the world’s electricity data to drive tangible reductions in carbon emissions. electricityMap started as a popular open-source project 5 years ago and is now used every day by citizens, companies, universities, NGOs, and policy makers around the world to understand and reduce the climate impact of electricity.

The insights and visualisations you will deliver using electricityMap’s data will be widely shared with both the public and industry experts and will help shape the transition towards a fossil-free energy system.

We’re a small team, so you’ll be owning a lot of your own work and initiatives, but we will be there to support you!

About you

We’re looking for a purpose-driven and empathetic data analyst who is comfortable with autonomy and tackling challenging problems that will help the world understand and reduce its emissions.
