Now hiring: EarthOS unit coordinator

This position is now closed

In 2019, in response to new opportunities that were showing up and to our own desire to contribute to responding to climate change, Edgeryders created a climate and environment unit, called EarthOS. In less than six months, we achieved a lot. We started a deep green-and-social co-housing process in Brussels, The Reef; launched the Sci-Fi Economics Lab to bring long-term considerations and out-of-the-box thinking into economic decisions; created a comprehensive manual for making fully distributed organizations, committed to zero commuting, and limited business travel; started a formal partnership with EIT Climate-KIC, and got involved in their innovative Deep Demonstrations programme.

So, now we have a unit. We need someone to stand at its heart. We imagine her or him as someone who can keep track of several projects unfolding at the same time; keep the delivery of projects running; liaise with the various collaborators; and follow the development of EIT Climate-KIC’s strategic thinking, so as to help us stay aligned with that community as much as possible, and spot possible business opportunities.

This is a leadership position with an onboarding process of 6 months in which the coordinator works closely under the supervision of one of the directors.

The ideal candidate:

  • Has project management experience.
  • Has written communication skills and can learn quickly how to use the platform and other internal channels for day-to-day team coordination.
  • Works autonomously and takes initiative to connect information from inside the organisation with external opportunities.
  • Has an organized mind, and information organization skills.
  • Is comfortable with distributed/remote working.
  • Cares about the climate and the environment.
  • Is fluent in English. Other languages are a plus.

We offer:

  • 2.2 K EUR before taxes/month, full time, against invoice – please see Edgeryders’ employment policy. The contract is 11 months long, renewable.
  • Flexible working hours
  • Possibility to work from anywhere, though proximity to the Brussels office is a plus.

The hiring process should not take longer than 3 weeks. It works like this:

  1. You apply.
  2. If we like the application, we invite you to a technical interview (video conference).
  3. If we like also that, we put you through a HR interview with a different person (also video conference).
  4. If everything checks out, you sign a contract.

To apply, write a letter of intent, explaining why you think you are a good fit for the role, and how you see yourself interpreting it. Include a CV, or a link to one. If you think there is something we have not thought of asking, but we should see, send that too. For example, you might be a solarpunk artist, or a cli-fi author – we are definitely interested in that, on top of your professional skills! Send it to Noemi Salantiu (, and we will take it from there.


Exciting! I wish you the best of luck in finding the right person. I’ve been involved with Climate KIC off and on over the last 7 years and it certainly seems to be evolving in an interesting direction. I have no doubt there will be some seriously interesting projects spinning out of EarthOS.


Thanks a lot!

We are now receiving applications and scheduling interviews, so thanks to those applying too,

We will close this thread as soon as we finalize this.
