Tree-Nation is the largest reforestation platform that allows citizens and companies to plant trees all around the world and offset their CO2 emissions.
We use technology to make tree planting easy. Tree-Nation invented the virtual tree, the online forest, and many other software tools in order to provide a unique technological solution aimed at shortening the distance between remote projects and their sponsors, between people and companies that want to plant trees and don't know how to, and expert planters around the world who can take care of that.
Since our beginning in 2006, over 550,000 users and more than 15,000 companies have planted 30 million trees using our platform and we have successfully onboarded 50 reforestation projects all around the world.
Let's make a difference together!
Our team is composed from so many nationalities, cultures, backgrounds and experiences that it seems at first sight we are very different. And we sure are. Nonetheless we share a few things in common, things that are not defined by our nationality or background but by our sheer will power. A warrior spirit. A fire. The way we go through life.
We're constantly in search of individuals who embody the "Swiss knife" mentality – versatile and adaptable professionals who can seamlessly transition between various roles and tackle a wide range of challenges. Much like this iconic tool, we value team members who are creative problem solvers, resourceful, and possess a diverse skill set. (And no, this does not mean that being from Switzerland is a requirement 😀)
