Frost Methane’s innovative, patented technology attacks the climate change threat directly by locating concentrated, continuous methane sources and installing our devices to reduce that methane’s climate warming impact by over 90%. Methane emissions currently account for over 18% of our planet’s warming and they must be neutralized. We’re looking for passionate people who want to create breakthroughs in untapped potential for significant methane reduction - while working with and benefiting rural communities.

Your mission is to identify methane sources suitable for our devices and put in place the agreements to enable deployment. Key responsibilities include:

  • Research methane sources such as coal and trona mines, landfills, manure ponds
  • Contacting, networking and communicating Frost Methane’s value proposition to the stakeholders
  • Create the best proposal for the stakeholders and communicate clearly in both verbal and written form
  • Work with our lawyers to create a contract based on the proposal
  • Form partnerships with companies that already serve some of those methane source stakeholders for wider sales channels
  • Keep track of the progress and schedule follow-ups to keep contract completion and deployments on track
  • Manage relationships with active and potential partners
  • Proactively identify opportunities that can have strategic impact on the company’s mission

  • Learning: You are curious, adventurous  and unafraid to jump into a new area. The startup journey requires wearing many hats. We’ll provide the hats and support needed to get up to speed quickly.
