Our mission : easing farmers’ transition to regenerative agriculture

Rize is a tech start-up developing climate finance to accelerate the transition to a sustainable and low carbon agriculture.

Today agriculture amounts to up to 25% of global greenhouse gases emissions, while the large-scale adoption of climate friendly practices could turn agricultural soils into one of the largest carbon sinks in the world by withdrawing carbon from the atmosphere.

In this global effort to solve climate change, Rize has pledged to ease the journey of farmers into regenerative agriculture. Rize is simplifying farmers' access to science and to carbon finance for their climate action.

That is how Rize has developed the first platform worldwide for carbon credits and has already developed a significant network of partners in France (such as farming cooperatives).

The journey to develop carbon finance for agriculture will be filled with plenty of exciting challenges:

  • develop new schemes of carbon finance to ensure that the transition brings more value to the farmers;
  • launch plenty of innovative services to create more value for the ecosystem;
  • going international soon;
  • improve our carbon monitoring infrastructure to keep up with the best of science.

Rize was founded in September 2020 by a team of engineers, and has since grown to a team of 20 people. Now, as the project has gained traction and raised funds, we are gathering the dream team to join us in this adventure.

Do you want to be at the heart of a high-impact and meaningful project that will shape the future of agriculture, by working with the best technologies within a high-potential start-up?

Descriptif du poste

What you’ll be doing

We are looking for the best intern who will support the operations team in scaling our commercial partnerships.

Your objective is to ensure we deliver on our promise with both farmers and our partners. As this is a central role, you will work closely with everyone within the Rize team (sales, carbon methods, product…). The main responsibilities attached to the role are:

  • manage and automate if relevant the certification process of farmers (initially with the Label Bas Carbone), with the objective to create lean and efficient operational processes
  • ensure our partners progressively scale their processes, accelerate the spread of our services (onboarding new farmers on a regular basis), and the quality of the underlying projects
  • collect farmers and partners needs and pain points to drive the product development and identify opportunities to create more value for our ecosystem

As Rize is a start-up, the internal career evolutions are limitless and you will naturally have plenty of opportunities to work on activities outside of the direct scope of your role.

You will work with Elise, Head of Operations, along with the entire science and tech team.

Place of work

Although Rize is based in Paris (our offices are in the Deeptech incubator Agoranov, close to Montparnasse and Station F), we enjoy the comfort of working remotely from home while getting occasions to have meaningful in-person interactions with the team.

We are currently in flex office mode, so we enjoy the best of both worlds, the flexibility that comes with working from home and great team moments when we all meet together in the office (usually 2 to 3 days each week).

4 great reasons to work with us!

  1. You will work in a fast pace environment at the heart of the French tech start-up ecosystem (Rize has joined some of the very best incubators in France and beyond: Station F, The Family, Agoranov, Plug&Play Agtech North Dakota...), for an exciting experience and a strong learning curve
  2. You will wake up every morning knowing that your work matters
  3. You will join a relaxed and growing team, with a true “start-up” spirit: you are not just an employee, but an integral part of the team. Your role, if you accept it, is to use your creativity and your unique skills to shape this collective project
  4. We are remote friendly but also love sharing a coffee from time to time
