alcemy is a machine learning startup that enables cement and concrete producers to cut their carbon footprint with predictive quality control (youtube.com/watch?v=lvS4QYrsy5A).

Concrete is the world’s most used building material. In fact, the only thing mankind consumes more of than concrete, by volume, is water. Concrete is not only made in a very inefficient way, but is also responsible for ~8% of worldwide carbon emissions.

Rob, a co-founder of the FlixBus Machine Learning Group, and Leo, an engineer who has breathed in cement before he breathed in air, have set out to revolutionize concrete in October 2018. We are backed by world-leading deep technology funds, including La Famiglia, firstminute and LocalGlobe, and are proud alumni of Entrepreneur First's BE2 cohort.

We are looking for a Business Development & Operations Manager to become an early and crucial member of our team. You will have the opportunity to contribute to our mission to reduce cement and concrete's carbon footprint from day one, while shaping the future of alcemy.
