  • We’ve developed one of the leading climate newsletters, Climatebase Weekly, which reaches nearly 100k readers three times each week.
  • We launched and organized SF Climate Week, which attracted over 7,000 people who attended over 100 events. 2023 was the first SFCW, and we will be running SFCW annually.
  • We launched the Climatebase Fellowship in 2022. Since then, we have helped accelerate the climate careers of over 1,000 Fellows that we selected from over 8,000 applicants across 4 cohorts. We are currently mid-way through cohort 4.

About The Fellowship:

The Climatebase Fellowship, now in its fourth iteration, is our climate career accelerator for top mission-driven professionals. Bringing together selective cohorts of Fellow peers and experts, the community-focused interdisciplinary educational experience is designed to help talented professionals accelerate their existing careers in climate or transition into the space. The Fellowship includes an online 12-week cohort-based program and 6 months of membership in the broader Fellowship community after the cohort concludes.

Position Overview: As the Admissions Coordinator, you'll report to the Fellowship Program Manager, and under their guidance you’ll play a pivotal role in shaping our community. Your insights and decisions will be instrumental in forming a vibrant, supportive, and curious community of professionals committed to climate.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Data Savviness: A knack for interpreting data, and using it to draw meaningful conclusions for deriving actionable insights for optimal cohort formations.
  • Hands-on Review or Recruitment: While direct admissions experience isn't mandatory, if you've been involved in processes where you've assessed people based on certain criteria—whether that's recruitment, applicant review, or something similar—we want to know.
  • Email and Communication Chops: Can you craft a compelling email? Great! We need someone who's good with words and can manage and analyze the success of email campaigns effectively.
  • Tech Comfort: You should be friendly with digital platforms and have experience or at least comfort in navigating CRM tools.
  • Reporting Skills: Can you take a bunch of data and turn it into a report that makes sense? If yes, that's a tick for us.

  • Team Player: Low ego, high enthusiasm, and a collaborative mindset are key. We believe in supporting each other and celebrating collective wins.

What We Offer:

  • Competitive compensation (salary, benefits, and equity)
  • Opportunity for growth: We value our employees and offer ample opportunities for career growth.
  • Remote-friendly work environment: As a fully remote team, we offer the flexibility to work from anywhere within the western hemisphere. Preferred time zones for candidates: from UTC -4 to UTC +1.
