Who are we looking for? 

To help grow Futureproofed Business, we are looking for an energetic, positive, creative and driven colleague to join our Product team.

At Futureproofed we only look for the most talented, curious, fun and dedicated people, right across the organisation  —  from sales to customer support, from product development to accounts receivable. 

We don’t want to be hiring just the smartest people, it’s also about developing the most flexible people, to create the best-performing teams. At Futureproofed we are also committed to being an Asshole-Free-Zone. 

If you have the right skills, knowledge, and background, we realise you could have many other jobs and offers to contemplate... So why should you devote your time to Futureproofed?

Here’s what we have to offer: you will have to work hard to catch up with a large and growing list of ideas; things may be more chaotic than elsewhere; our plan might even fail. But the quid pro quo is that you will have more responsibility, it will be more fun, you will learn and grow more, you will do meaningful work, and if things go well, you could participate in the upside.


At Futureproofed we see climate change as one of the greatest threats to humanity — on par with nuclear warfare, in fact — but also as an unprecedented opportunity for people, cities, and businesses to thrive. 

We believe our ability to reverse the climate crisis and build a fossil-free, circular and biodiverse society will determine our fate in the coming decades. Either we become the fools who let the climate change tragedy unfold, or we become the superhero generation who speed up and scale the transformation to cleaner, more attractive cities and a fossil-free future. 


When it comes to climate change, cities and companies is where the action is.

FutureproofedCities is a cloud based platform to help solve those issues. It helps cities develop, monitor and manage their climate action plan. Cities can learn from other cities and engage their citizens to better transform their climate plan into action. 

At Futureproofed Business, we believe accelerating to a fossil-free, sustainable future is arguably the biggest business opportunity in a century.

We use an outcome driven innovation approach: we start from your business challenges and, backed by data, guide you to carbon emissions reduction. All while saving costs, reducing risks, developing new business opportunities, and reinforcing your brand.
