You will assist in developing and applying cutting-edge methods for monitoring ecosystem change, and/or statistical and machine learning models for assessing risk in the Voluntary Carbon Market.

You will have scientific or industry experience in remote sensing and/or spatial statistics, and a keen interest in ecosystem dynamics and the carbon cycle. Ideally based in our London office, but we will consider remote applications within +/- 3 hrs.

  • Familiarity with any of the following would be a bonus: Postgres, PostGIS, Snowflake, AWS, Prefect, GitHub, QGIS, R, Jupyter Notebooks.

  • Have experience working with machine learning algorithms (classification/regression), experience with deep learning is a plus.

  • Are excited to work with people from a diverse range of backgrounds, spanning remote sensing, ecology, engineering, policy and finance, and from all corners of the world

  • Are positive and kind. As a team and as a company, we believe in being kind over being nice. We are constantly giving and receiving constructive feedback and we are always trying to be empathetic

Please know that even if you don’t have experience in all the areas above but think you could do a great job and are excited about building a great company culture, bringing transparency to the voluntary carbon market, and being part of a fast-growing team, we would love to hear from you!
