MORE ABOUT THE JOB

Who we are

ACT helps organizations hit their climate targets, no matter how ambitious. Since founding in 2009, we have become a reliable partner for high-impact climate projects that generate carbon credits, energy efficiency projects and certificates, experts in renewable electricity and gas markets, renewable fuels, and emission allowances. ACT enables its partners to pursue sustainable futures.

At ACT, software engineering is done in-house for internal stakeholders. This is enabling a fast paced growth of the company. We optimize business processes by automating them as much as possible. We achieve this in close collaboration with business stakeholders. Throughout the company, there's an atmosphere of entrepreneurship. We're a multi-cultural company of pragmatic people who enjoy getting things done and making an impact.

Our engineering values

We believe in giving engineers structure, autonomy and final responsibility. Constant self-improvement and growth is an important part of that. This ranges from improving the way we collaborate, to continuously improve the quality of your deliverables and taking ownership of DevOps and architecture.

We are in a key moment in our engineering journey as our teams have grown in maturity over the past years, and we see the value in streamlining the way we work and achieve value together. We greatly value an environment of openness and honesty.

Our technology

The systems we build and maintain are crucial to support and automate the trade lifecycle of environmental commodities. We build solutions across the whole organization, involving the sales, operations, finance, marketing, and compliance teams, among others. Because of that, we have the opportunity to create direct impact through the technology we build.
