Ready to join a team of visionaries who is dedicated to solving one of humankind’s greatest challenges?

Climeworks captures CO₂ from the air to fight global warming and protect future generations to come.

We develop, build and operate direct air capture (DAC) machines, which capture CO₂ directly from the air. The air-captured carbon dioxide can either be recycled and reused as a raw material or completely removed from the air by safely storing it underground, permanently.

Founded in 2009 by engineers, Christoph Gebald and Jan Wurzbacher, Climeworks was built with the vision to inspire 1 billion people to remove CO₂ from the air, and is now the leader in technological carbon removal.

A true climate pioneer, Climeworks is featured as a TIMES100 Influential Company 2022 and Global Cleantech 100 Company 2022, driving a revolutionary technology engineered to solve the most pressing issue of our time.

We foster a dynamic environment and are building a global purpose-driven team. We are looking for disruptive thinkers, passionate doers and inspiring leaders that are ready to take on the world’s greatest challenge.
