Job description: public
iSumio is a Scottish company – our mission is to help you know all kinds of value as easily as financial value.
Why – we think you should be able to compare the social and environmental impact of purchases as easily as you can compare prices. Everyone needs to do this if we are to avoid irreversible global warming and achieve a fair society.
How – we create novel software solutions that balance innovation with proven technologies.
What – we provide simple and practical tools for organisations and people. These give access to data insights that are timely, accurate, authenticated, and granular.
Our software tools give you the right data when you need it – helping you make better choices.
We value diversity in our team and want everyone to feel included. We strive to be an equal opportunities employer that does not tolerate harassment or discrimination.
Climate change is the biggest challenge facing humanity. Our first product – Neoni – enables companies to play their part by harnessing carbon reduction as the next big competitive advantage.
Neoni embeds an accounting mindset to enable companies to understand their greenhouse gas emissions more accurately and comprehensively than current solutions. At launch, Neoni will include software tools for companies, particularly in the manufacturing sector, and public sector analysts.
Neoni makes it easy for companies to understand their total emissions. Currently this is difficult because most emissions are indirect. Indirect emissions embedded in a company’s supply chains are typically 11 times a company’s direct emissions – yet these are often hard to trace beyond the first tier in a supply chain.
Neoni implements an innovative approach to solving this problem. It meets and exceeds the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) protocol for companies to calculate their emissions.
iSumio won the CivTech 6 Challenge 1 to “help manufacturing businesses decarbonise while building resilience and strengthening competitive advantage”. We have been contracted by the Scottish Government to develop a beta solution by the end of 2022.
Remote. UK/ Scotland preferred.
You will initially work on our Neoni product. Neoni is a suite of apps for companies and public sector analysts to track greenhouse gas emissions. Companies use Neoni to plan more sustainable practices and analysts use Neoni to provide data to government ministers and design better policies.

To succeed, you will have a versatile skillset and be comfortable doing different types of work.
