Job Description

Why are we here? 

MiQ has one simple goal: rapidly reducing methane emissions in the oil and gas sector by certifying natural gas.  Because we want to remove emissions that contribute the same amount of climate impact as the entire transportation sector combined!! 

What do we do? 

MiQ has developed a Standard that provides a robust, transparent, and reliable grading method (A-F) to certify natural gas according to its methane emissions performance during production. Our theory of change relies upon market forces, whereby markets adopt certified gas to drive pricing and investment signals for the producers. 

Who are we? 

MiQ is an independent, not-for-profit foundation established by RMI and SYSTEMIQ to facilitate a rapid reduction in methane emissions from the Oil & Gas sector. MiQ has developed a unique Standard for methane emissions accounting through the full natural gas supply chain. The standard differentiates each gas molecule by its methane intensity.  MiQ pairs this robust, technical standard with a credible registry to generate, trade and retire emissions certificates. MiQ’s theory of change is that differentiated products will lead to differentiated pricing and emissions reduction as corporates strive for higher norms.

  • Develop trusted relationships with senior partners (C suite or equivalent) to shape their strategies and bring new disruptive ideas to innovate and scale-up the market for low-methane emissions gas 

  • Report to CEO and work in close conjunction with CEO and Directors to set and implement strategic direction of MiQ and ensure its success in methane abatement 

  • Publish thought-leadership materials for the initiative and with initiative partners  

Preferred Qualifications 

  • Bachelor’s or master's level degree in an applicable field such as economics, engineering, business, finance, marketing, public policy, or environmental management  

  • 7+ years of client-facing experience in business development, marketing, origination, investment banking, product development or early-market development
