Join our Team

GHGSat is a Montreal-based start-up taking on climate change using satellite technology. We are a vibrant and energetic company, in the heart of the Plateau Mont-Royal area. We launched our first greenhouse gas detecting satellite in 2016 and we are launching two more in the next year.  We work with leading-edge technology that will contribute something to the world. If that sounds like something you are interested in, check out our job postings below!



GHGSat’s capability is unique: the company provides high-resolution, local measurements of atmospheric methane and carbon dioxide concentration from space.  This further provides the company means to detect greenhouse gas emitters and to visualize and quantify their emissions.

Your mission as part of the analytics software team will be to use your software skills to help build AI that will:

  • Automatically detect greenhouse gas emitters and emissions
  • Quantify greenhouse gas emissions
  • Predict emission events



The growing GHGSat software team is a mix of junior and senior developers, working on a code base that includes embedded Linux applications, kernel modules, satellite scheduling software, data archival and management, GIS, remote sensing inversion algorithms as well as analytics code.

Working collaboratively with a multi-disciplinary team (aerospace, atmospheric science, physics, and software), your main task will be to implement greenhouse gas retrieval algorithms designed by the GHGSat Science Team, for state-of-the-art scientific instruments in space and on aircraft.

Overall, you will have strong programming and mathematical skills and be a strong team player.



The Sales Coordinator is responsible for the preparation of responses to Request for Proposals (RFPs), Request for Quotations (RFQs) and Requests for Information (RFIs). Working closely with the sales team and the other internal groups as required, the Sales Coordinator will draft proposals tailored to the specific needs of each customer.

In addition, the Sales Coordinator will be expected to support the Sales Team in sourcing leads for GHGSat’s pipeline and maintaining the company’s Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system up to date. The Sales Coordinator will also support management reporting using the CRM.



GHGSat uses spectroscopic remote sensing from small satellites to monitor greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from individual industrial sites anywhere on Earth. Our compact satellite instruments are the first of their kind – they are specifically designed for single-site GHG measurements. The successful candidate will use their expertise to support the testing and characterization of these instruments.

The candidate will join a multi-disciplinary team and participate actively in GHGSat’s instrument design cycles, integration, testing, and characterization.



Working collaboratively with a multi-disciplinary team (aerospace, atmospheric science, physics, software and algorithms), your main task will be to estimate effort to support major GIS formats, design web services API, develop backend and frontend, test and deploy on cloud instances and self-hosted servers. You will also work on interfaces with internal sub-components.

Overall, you have an excellent knowledge of web technologies, security standards, a strong motivation in tackling the important environmental issues that our planet faces today.
