About the Centre for AI & Climate: 

 

We are a non-profit company building the tools that enable the application of machine learning and AI to accelerate climate action. We are a growing team dedicated to finding the most strategic uses for machine learning to support climate action. We build the digital tools and resources necessary to support the development of machine learning driven climate applications. 

 

About the project:

 

One of the most significant challenges in applying AI to climate action is being able to find and access the data required. To address this, we are working on the development of an online data platform that brings together data from a range of sectors, and makes it easy to find and access data relevant to the transition to net zero. 

 

This project is being funded by the UK Government and supported by the Canadian Government, and is being delivered in partnership with CEIMIA, a Canadian AI Centre of excellence. The Product Manager will lead the development of the product for the Centre for AI & Climate. 

 

Team

As a foundational hire you will play a leading role in building and shaping the platform. 

You will work with existing members of the Centre for AI & Climate. You will report to CAIC’s Executive Director.

 

Responsibilities:

 

  • Lead the design and development of an international net-zero data catalogue

  • Understand who our core users are, what their pain-points are, how they experience these, what their current solutions are to addressing their pain points, what their precise business needs are for addressing these pain points, and the proposed solution for meeting these business needs.

  • Manage the input from a front end designer, a front-end developer, a back-end developer to identify, define, design and prioritise product feature development

  • Manage input from data specialists to identify and integrate data sources for the catalogue

  • Manage input from a large language model (LLM) specialist to integrate conversational interface for the catalogue

  • Work with the CAIC Executive Director in engaging with international project partners

 

What Success Looks Like

 

We are looking for someone who can deliver a well-respected, well-used, data catalogue which empowers climate data practitioners to find and understand the data useful to them as quickly and effectively as possible. Our approach to getting there is to combine product vision with fast-shipping, iterative, feedback-led product design. 

 

Qualifications and skills:

 

  • Proven experience as a Product Manager.

  • Experience with agile and associated methodologies

  • Good technical background with an understanding of software development processes and technologies.

  • Experience in taking a concept to delivery.

  • Comfortable in working in a startup-style culture (i.e. willing to do whatever is needed to get the job done even if it isn’t in this job description!)

  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills.

  • Comfortable working independently and remotely.

  • Strong problem-solving and analytical skills.

  • Strong writing skills

  • Project management experience and proficiency in project management tools.

Values

 

The Centre for AI & Climate is a values-led organisation. We hold the following values as being especially important in delivering our mission:

 

  • Impact: We are in a climate crisis. We need to be highly focussed on work that can have the most impact. This means thinking big and being focussed.

  • Think differently: We need to innovate in order to accelerate the transition to net zero. We need to be continuously seeking new and better ways of doing things.

  • Obsessive user focus: Impact comes from listening carefully to those experiencing the challenges we are seeking to address, and rapidly building solutions to help them.

  • Kindness: how we do things intrinsically impacts the outcome of our work. We seek to create an internal culture and external reach based on collaboration, inclusivity and kindness.

Benefits:

  • 30 days of paid time off, plus UK bank holidays.

  • Paid maternity, paternity, adoption, or shared parental leave.

  • Personal learning budget of up to £500 a year, plus further role-specific training budget.
