People are the most important part of every organization, and ACTUAL is no exception.


About us

Climate change is the defining challenge of our time, so at ACTUAL, we are building a software platform to help organizations of all kinds to break through decision paralysis and begin turning their sustainability goals into meaningful, measurable action. Think of ACTUAL as a scaled up take on the “SimCity” planning games you may have played growing up (or as an adult, we don’t judge). Our software enables corporations, governments, and change-making organizations to plan sustainability initiatives with ease and rapidly assess the environmental and social impacts of their operations. Drawing on inspirations from urban planning, game design, journalistic data visualization, and scientific computing, ACTUAL is helping our users reimagine their supply chains, workplaces, factories, and cities for a more sustainable future. We are well funded, with a growing pipeline of enterprise customers and worldwide projects. Our interdisciplinary team has widely varied backgrounds, unified by a shared commitment to build a more optimistic future. We believe stellar candidates can come from anywhere, so we encourage you to apply if you feel you would be a great fit, even if you don’t exactly meet the listed requirements.
