Founded in Paris in 2005, LGI is an independent SME that is active in more than 20 countries. Its vision is based on the belief that the major transformations required to create a sustainable world will require positive, impactful innovation. In 2020, LGI became a purpose-driven enterprise under French law (société à mission), a statutory evolution reflecting its commitment to an objective of "promoting sustainable innovation as a vector for solutions to global climate, environmental and societal challenges".
LGI has built lasting relationships with 500+ partners worldwide to tackle challenges related to climate, biodiversity, low-carbon energies, climate-smart cities, mobility, circular economy, social innovation, and nature-based solutions, among other impact areas.
LGI is always on the hunt for motivated and fun individuals to add to the team! Open-mindedness and an ability to work as part of a multicultural team while also managing one’s own deadlines is crucial. Candidates who can work the startup way (agile, focused, hacker-minded, DIY mindset) will flourish. An interest in scientific, research or innovation-oriented projects is necessary.
Excellent communication and presentation skills are important, as is being able to engage in small talk with project partners at meetings. The current team is made up of about 30 multidisciplinary backgrounds, including engineering, commerce, law and finance, tech, political science and communication.
