What is cleantech?

Cleantech, clean technology, green tech, carbon tech, environmental technology…. is any technology, process or know-how that improves air, water, energy, climate change and natural resource conditions for sustainable life on earth.

How does Getcleantechjobs work?

If you’ve ever joined a dating site this may seem strangely familiar! Getcleantechjobs is a crowd-built database, powered by a unique matching algorithm. It will create matches based on the content that you put in your profile, whether that content be about your academic career, your thesis project, projects you’ve worked or your career interests, or all of the above. When there’s a match in the getcleantechjobs database to your profile, we’ll send you an alert. It’s as simple as that. Then it’s up to you to decide to do something about it (we’ll share tips on that too).

How can I get better matches?

Our algorithm reads text paragraphs, and identifies and ranks matching concepts in paragraphs elsewhere in our database. For optimum matching results, approximately two pages of prose description are recommended. This can be pasted into the description, or referred to by a webpage URL.
