long-lasting climate impact


Embark on a transformative journey to change the future of sustainable building with Preoptima. Shape your career around impactful advancements in sustainability in the built environment. With us, your work matters. 

Our Company

At preoptima we are united by an ambitious, purpose-driven mission: avoiding and minimising impacts in the global built environment, which accounts for 37% of global emissions.

We help bring critical carbon considerations in design upfront, allowing people and organisations to achieve low carbon outcomes in their early-stage projects.

Preoptima is a pioneering software platform that uses sophisticated AI algorithms and generative design to offer a unique, iterative approach to designing low-carbon buildings. We allow building stakeholders to make data-driven decisions when it matters most, eliminating the limitations of the traditional resource-intensive linear design-assessment process. 

If you want to join a fast-moving start-up on a save-the-world mission, there’s never been a more exciting time to join! We’re currently a team of eight with expertise in business leadership, academia and sustainability, data science, software engineering, and marketing. We are well-funded and have the ambition to quickly scale into a global company.

We value diversity – in background and experiences. Climate change is a universal concern, and we need people from all backgrounds to help shape the future of the built environment. We are deliberate and self-reflective about the kind of team and culture that we are building, seeking people that are not only strong in their own aptitudes but care deeply about supporting each other's growth.
