Company Description

We're Twelve, the carbon transformation company—a new kind of chemical company that makes things from air, not oil. Our breakthrough technology eliminates emissions by transforming CO2 into critical materials, products and fuels.

When it comes to addressing climate change, carbon isn’t our nemesis. To the contrary, we see carbon as the element of change. Carbon isn’t just the building block of life, it’s the building block of the chemicals, materials and fuels that make up our modern world and power innovation. From the spring in our running shoes to our favorite electronics, to building materials, electric car parts and fuels, carbon makes it possible. The problem is we get this carbon today from fossil fuels in the form of petrochemicals, which creates CO2 emissions and accelerates climate change.

Carbon transformation fundamentally changes this paradigm by sourcing carbon from CO2 instead of fossil fuels. By replacing the fossil carbon in critical chemicals with renewable, recycled carbon from CO2, we can eliminate emissions from thousands of essential products and set a new standard for how things get made in the climate era.

We're Building a Team That's Never Existed Before

At Twelve, we combine multiple scientific, engineering and operational disciplines to take our technology from the original science to an industrial solution that puts a dent in climate change. It takes everybody and more to create an entirely new industry based on a technology that never existed before.

Join Our Mission to Build a Climate-Positive World and Fossil-Free Future

We are on a mission to build a fossil free-future, and reinvent what it means to be a chemical company in the climate era. Our carbon transformation technology is the keystone of a circular, non-extractive, fossil-free chemical and energy system of the future. Join us!


Twelve Benefits Philosophy: We believe that a big part of enabling the success of our employees is taking care of their health and wellbeing — as well as the health of their families. That is why Twelve provides full health insurance coverage (at 99%) to our employees + dependents.

Benefits Overview

Medical, dental and vision - The physical and mental wellbeing of our employees is crucially important to us. To help alleviate some of the stress that comes with healthcare, Twelve pays for up to 99% of the total cost of medical, dental and vision insurance for employees and their families. This includes nationwide plans through Cigna (medical), Delta Dental (dental), and Guardian (vision) and local plans through Kaiser Permanente (medical).

Health Savings Account funding - Employees who elect medical insurance in an HSA-compatible health plan are provided $130/month for single coverage and $210/month if they are also covering dependents.

Parental leave - New parents are able to take up to 12 weeks of parental leave to welcome a new addition to the family, and up to 6 weeks of part-time work (at full-time pay) to gradually transition back to work.

Company ownership - Twelve provides every employee with company stock options because every employee’s contributions are integral to achieve our mission to reduce global emissions and build a fossil-free future.

Work at home stipends & reimbursements - All employees are eligible for phone reimbursement and headphone stipends, while remote and hybrid employees are also eligible for home internet and home office equipment stipends.

Financial wellness - Twelve offers the opportunity to contribute to both pretax and Roth 401(k) retirement accounts and employees are also able to participate in pretax flexible spending accounts for medical and dependent care costs.

to unwind without thinking about what they are missing.
