For starters, the pure satisfaction of finishing your work day knowing that you are pushing the world into the right direction.
Second, you would be joining a highly collaborative, flexible and international team. Our floor is always open for suggestions and opinions on how we can optimize our operations and maximize our impact on the planet.

About Kelp Blue
At Kelp Blue, we’re striving to find long-term solutions to help restore the planet’s equilibrium and providing planet friendly products to some of the world’s largest industries.
Our goal is to re-wild the oceans by growing giant kelp forests at scale, beginning off the coast of Luderitz. These giant kelp forests will lock away CO2 forever, boost marine biodiversity and have an enormously positive social impact on coastal communities through job creation and education. Our company growth will be financed by the harvesting, processing and sale of the kelp canopy into environmentally-friendly inputs for multiple industries.
We’re not a ‘business as usual’ company. We’re here to make a difference.
We’re a lean team, we all roll up our sleeves to get the job done, whatever it may be. People who fit well will with us are independent thinkers yet team players and people who are results driven. Because some of the things we’re trying to do have never been done before, we’re looking for people who have a healthy dose of common sense, who are problem solvers by nature and that you’re comfortable getting on with tasks in an unstructured environment.
