Chief Advisor

CERT Systems Inc (CERT) is on a mission to transform the way the world’s most important chemicals are made and be a leading player in the transition to a sustainable future. We seek a standout candidate in the top of their field to chair our Advisory Board and play a critical role in the building and scaling of our company.

About CERT

CERT has developed a breakthrough route to convert captured carbon dioxide (CO2) into valuable fuels and chemical feedstocks using our proprietary electrochemical technology. By using CO2 and renewable electricity instead of fossil fuels, we aim to avoid over 500 million tonnes of emissions by 2040. CERT recently competed as a finalist in the NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE and was awarded over $1M in non-dilutive funding through the Breakthrough Energy Solutions Canada program. 

About the role:

We are seeking an experienced advisor to work with our founding team to bring our breakthrough technology to market. In this role, you will work closely with the founders to build an advisory board, provide business guidance, and promote CERT’s mission and vision externally.

The ideal candidate will:
