About Marble

Marble is a climate tech venture studio. Our north star is to erase billions of tons from annual greenhouse gas emissions and create a thriving future.

We're proud to be backed by leading climate investors across Europe and the US.

About The Role

We are looking for a Junior Operations Analyst to join Marble and help us coordinate the backstage of building breakthrough climate companies — source great individuals, support the delivery of a great founder programme experience, and grow the broader Marble community through events, both in-person and online.

Reporting to our Talent & Platform Associate, you will work with the whole Marble team and brilliant founders on a mission to turn the tide on the climate crisis. This is a unique opportunity to work with some of the brightest and most driven individuals you’ll meet!

You will be immersed into the worlds of climate and deep tech venture creation. Expect direct exposure to the many aspects of running a climate tech studio: talent sourcing, programme operations, founder experience, events, and much more.

Location: HQ in Paris.

Language: English and French fluency required.

Availability: 6-month internship starting Sept 2024

Responsibilities

The Junior Operations Analyst internships is focused on four main pillars:

  • Talent Operations. You will identify and reach out to passive outlier candidates with unique technical or domain expertise, and strong founder potential. You will help coordinate our processes for evaluating their overall potential.
  • Programme Operations: You will work across the full team to support the delivery of the Marble venture creation programme. You’ll have a front seat at the innings and backstage of building climate deep tech companies, from theory to practice, from venture ideation to creation and securing pre-seed investment. You’ll ensure a prompt feedback loop for all our ventures - equipping our founders and the overall ecosystem with tools to catalyze their learnings.
  • Events Operations: You will drive the organization of digital and physical events to help gather our communities, while having the chance to network with some of the most brilliant minds in climate tech. You will also be part of some of the most active climate tech digital (slack) communities, and engage with like-minded individuals.
  • Tools & Automation: You will ensure that our talent & programme runs smoothly on a daily basis to deliver an outstanding experience for our Founders-in-Residence, from onboarding to work-sessions, investment committee, and more. You have a knack for low code tools, AI-powered processes, and automation to help supercharge our efficiency.
