Want to use your skills for a truly meaningful project? Would you like to help combat the climate crisis? Then come to SCIARA and work with us on the Climate Time Machine!

We advance climate protection with the help of computer science: With a small but powerful team, we are developing the science-based online simulation Climate Time Machine. Participants in the simulation can explore, understand and shape their footprint: a journey through time into the climate future! In this way, we increase social support for climate protection measures and thus effectively accelerate the climate turn-around!

SCIARA was founded a good two years ago by two experienced IT entrepreneurs. In addition to the founders, the company has partnered with six medium-sized premium IT companies. We cooperate closely with the famous Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.

Our team is spread across Germany and we work well together as a virtual organization via Zoom video conference, Slack, email, Jira/Confluence and GitLab.
