Software / Web Development

At Atem, we believe in a positive future for humanity. A future in balance with our planet’s resources and ecosystems. To get there, we work on systems to scale up positive externalities such as reducing emissions, removing carbon and restoring natural ecosystems.

Join us as a Backend Engineer to address the climate crisis with technology.

Job summary

In this role (freelance or permanent), you will research, design and implement backend solutions for the core building blocks of Atem’s carbon API. You will have a tremendous impact on fighting climate change by building the key components for a transparent and effective carbon credit market. You will join a small and dedicated engineering team that is passionate about navigating uncharted territory. As one of Atem’s first engineers, you can be involved with other startup aspects that may interest you, including generating product ideas, talking to users, experimentation or marketing.


Your tasks consist of implementing mission-critical backend services, as well as integrating third-party service providers. Furthermore, you will automate payment flows and interact with blockchain protocols. This consists of establishing and maintaining a secure and reliable custodial wallet setup. As an API-first product, you have a big say on how to build our solution.


For this position, we value a language-agnostic mindset with previous experience in Golang. You should be able to solve complex problems in a very dynamic environment. We are looking for a self-starter that thrives in ambiguity and can envision successful outcomes. Being able to balance velocity and quality in a quickly evolving product is a key requirement. You should also be a clear communicator who can express complex ideas and execute them.

Nice to have

  • Experience building out REST- and/or GraphQL-APIs
  • Interest in cloud native development and infrastructure as code
  • Passionate about the blockchain industry with the desire to learn more


Join a purpose-driven, well-funded startup led by experienced founders and make a mark in a disruptive and fast-developing market. In addition to a competitive salary, you can participate in Atem’s success via our stock option program.

About Atem

Environmental Services
Berlin, Germany
In a historical moment of crisis, we aim to make the tools work for a carbon negative future. We believe that blockchains are ideally suited to fix many of the shortcomings of the current carbon market. Permissionless (open, transparent systems for everyone to participate in) and automated transacting for market participants (instant, low-cost exchange of offsets and funds) are already big steps in the right direction. Leveraging this new market, Atem increases the return on carbon offsetting through highly-efficient, automated carbon APIs.
