    The role:
    We are looking for a Senior Backend Engineer to join our team and lead the development of our core platform, which provides impactful tools and services to developers and businesses committed to combating climate change. In this role, you will be responsible for building and maintaining systems that powering our platforms and their AI and remote sensing insights. Your work will enable our customers to identify and support high-quality nature-based projects, driving positive environmental impact.

    You'll be working alongside a team of sustainability experts, forest scientists, machine learning experts, designers, and engineers to understand stakeholder needs and deliver high-quality, delightful products. The products you’ll be creating will touch a wide range of audiences in the carbon credit and forest carbon project space from the environmentally responsible corporations and individuals to the forest projects themselves.

    We're looking for engineers who find joy in the craft of building and want to make an impact. Engineers who push forward initiatives by asking great questions, cutting through ambiguity, and organizing to win. Engineers who are relentlessly detail-oriented, methodical in their approach to understanding trade-offs, place the highest emphasis on building simply, and building quickly.

    Location:
    This role is remote. However, being within 3 hours of Pacific time is preferred for this role given cross-functional communication responsibilities.

    We are looking for a Staff Data Engineer to lead the development of cutting-edge data systems backing our products for our mission to restore and protect the planet's forests. As a leader on the DMRV (Digital measurement, reporting, and verification) team, you will build, scale and deploy systems for ingesting, storing and computing the data powering our AI and Remote Sensing insights and are responsible for delivering those data insights to our customers to enable them to identify and originate the highest quality nature-based projects.
    A typical day includes collaborating across engineering and science teams to understand new dataset ingest pathways for model or algorithm features, writing code to support efficient compute and scalable transformation and algorithms to unlock insights over project data, designing systems for easy data access and experimentation pathways, pair coding with other engineers to raise the standards and bar on our technical work, and roadmapping core improvements to our data, compute or measurement stack.
    We're looking for engineers who find joy in the craft of building but live for seeing the end-to-end impact and want to rally engineers around them. Engineers who push forward initiatives by asking great questions, cutting through ambiguity, and organizing to win. Engineers who are relentlessly detail-oriented, methodical in their approach to understanding trade-offs, and place the highest emphasis on building and building quickly.
