One silver lining to Covid is that remote working has become a more mainstream option for employment. This is of particular significance to midlife jobseekers as they are often faced with a complex set of personal obligations that make moving home for work particularly challenging.

There are a surprising amount of remote working opportunities in the green economy. The first port of call for anyone thinking about this should probably be our friends at ClimateBase, which has a whole section dedicated to remote jobs that has new entries added on an almost daily basis.

Of particular interest are those companies seeking to significantly expand their workforce. One such company that stands out recently is NCX, which “helps mission-driven companies buy carbon credits from American forest owners.” In a Clubhouse chat recently, Max Nova, co-founder of NCX, pointed out that the company had been working mostly remotely way before Covid, so there is a clear cultural acceptance in this sector. Here’s an idea of the kind of remote roles NCX has listed recently:

  • Head of People
  • Corporate Account Executive
  • Data Engineer
  • Global Website Manager
  • Sales Development Representative
  • Demand Generation Manager
  • Full-Stack Engineer
  • Landowner Product Manager

Another employer that stands out in this regard is Spin, who “provide your community with dockless scooter-share to get you where you need to go whether you’re commuting to work, going to class, running errands on the weekends or exploring your city.” Alongside many location-specific roles in various parts of the world, here’s an idea of the kind of remote roles Spin has listed recently:

  • Vice President of Data
  • Senior Frontend Engineer, Mobile & Web, Fleet Lifecycle
  • Senior Software Engineer, Application Core
  • Systems Engineer
  • Procurement Manager
  • Senior Associate, Operations Optimization
