Full-time · Amsterdam

Join today, shape tomorrow.

Hello, changemaker! Do you want to join a frontrunner in sustainable technology?

Innovation defines our era, but with a cost: Humans have lost touch with nature. We’re indoors 90% of the time and our buildings emit 10B tons CO2 yearly – equal to every human circling the globe four times. A whopping 97% of them are energy inefficient. Combine this with challenges in ESG reporting, hitting net-zero carbon offset goals and creating healthy workspaces ... the stark reality is that real estate is under pressure.

We’re Next Sense. We make sense of commercial real estate, driving innovation to create climate-neutral buildings. Using data and simulations, our platform slashes energy consumption by 50% and makes a multi-year investment strategy to help buildings align with ESG benchmarks.

“Its our mission to show, not tell, that commercial real estate can be experience-driven and carbon-neutral at the same time”. – CEO, Ferdinand Grapperhaus

Commercial buildings must adhere to a maximum use of 70 kWh per square meter, annually, to be labelled Paris-proof. To date, only 3% of commercial real estate has achieved this and Next Sense aims to bring on board the remaining 97%. Already in 2024, legislating bodies, including the EU Taxonomy, CSRD and SFDR, are demanding organizations to include their carbon footprint data into annual accounts. As these requirements augment, so does the need for compliant reporting, which starts with data-driven buildings that have reduced energy consumption. Next Sense will do just that, by offering building owners performance insights that align with legislation and decarbonization options. Next to that, it will offer A.I. building control and performance optimization to owners, placing their projects onto the path to Paris-proof.
