Job Description

Are you ready to take on the challenge of building a small sustainability technology company into a growing and thriving commercially sustainable business?

We are imby, a technology company aiming to create a digital twin of nature in our cities, showing how we are all connected and how we can all contribute to improving the world around us. We are keen to expand our portfolio of sustainability technology solutions - what would you like to create?

The opportunity

You will also be responsible for developing imby’s longer-term strategy, in particular charting a course to developing our own products to take to market, and locating appropriate funding to do so. As part of this, you will look to identify potential grants which can support this strategy, developing relationships with potential delivery partners to help imby win and deliver on these.


imby can offer a flexible approach to how you deliver your objectives with hours, holidays, equity, bonus and other benefits up for negotiation.
