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 offset and renewable energy suppliers directly with the businesses that need them most in 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 Coatue, Andreessen Horowitz, 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:
Demand
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.

Supply
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.

About Position
We're looking for exceptional engineers to design, build, launch and manage Patch’s novel platform primitives and API products. Nothing like Patch has ever been built before. There is no playbook detailing how features or products should be built. This role offers product-minded engineers the ability to take control of the roadmap and chart a course toward making the greatest impact.   We currently use Ruby on Rails, Postgres, and Typescript on AWS.

What You’ll Do:
  • Design and deploy highly available and resilient platform primitives, APIs, and features. 
  • Architect scalable, product-oriented systems able to handle billions of API requests annually.
  • Work through problems with your team, roll up your sleeves, form an opinion, and advocate for engineering-specific roadmap items.
  • Strategize and collaborate with other Patch teammates to provide the best product possible to our users.

Who You Are:
  • You have significant years of software engineering experience
  • You have experience in or are willing and able to learn Ruby on Rails
  • You are eager to contribute to Patch’s carbon removal mission
  • You have a passion for collaboration and a history of establishing great relationships with design and product management teams across time zones.
  • You are curious about constantly learning new things in a fast-paced startup environment.
  • You have a commitment to technical excellence, raising the bar, and delivering results. 
  • You are an excellent oral and written communicator.

Why Patch:
  • Make a positive impact on the world, and work on a mission that matters.
  • Competitive compensation.
  • Meaningful Equity.
  • Monthly wellness stipend for mental and physical health, covering gyms, courses, therapy, art, animals, etc!
  • Remote-friendly.
  • Low ego, collaborative culture.
  • Time-off As Needed Vacation Policy.

Commitment to Diversity:
Patch is committed to a policy of Equal Employment Opportunity and will not discriminate against an applicant, candidate, or employee on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, national origin or ancestry, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental disability, medical condition, marital/domestic partner status, military or veteran status, genetic information or any other legally-recognized protected basis under federal, state or local laws, regulations or ordinances.
