Who we are

Sensible is a climate and finance technology company. We’re using data and finance to confront the single largest problem facing the global economy and society: climate change.

Sensible was founded in 2019, and our first product is focused on consumer travelers and event-goers, allowing them to better understand, plan for, and mitigate weather that could negatively impact their experience. Our team combines atmospheric science, cloud architecture, product engineering, and user experience design to create useful and delightful products.

Sensible is a team built on trust, feedback, and communication. We recognize that diversity of background, skills, and experiences makes stronger teams, and we are therefore an equal opportunity employer.
