Open Positions

Senior Forest Carbon Analyst

SIG is searching for a Senior Forest Carbon Analyst for our US operations. The successful candidate will have familiarity with a wide range of forest types in the US, work with forest inventory data, and develop complex FVS key files for silvicultural practices in the US and Canada. This role includes long-term timber management plan development, carbon quantification, cash flow estimation, and communication of results with forest carbon project participants and regulatory agencies. SIG is a digitally native organization with personnel distributed across three continents. Therefore, the position is for remote work only, preferably based in US compatible timezones.

Remote Sensing and Geospatial Data Analyst

The successful candidate will have the expertise and experience to work closely with a small geospatial programmer team and project managers in developing geospatial tools, leading capacity building activities for client groups, and completing other tasks related to GIS and remote sensing. Proficiency with Google Earth Engine is highly preferred and experience with environmentally focused mapping and forest management projects is beneficial. The position may involve occasional travel to engage with clients for workshops, when conditions permit.

Full Stack Web Developer - Clojure

SIG is searching for a Full Stack Web Developer to focus initially on developing a web application for implementing a novel carbon protocol – Avoided Wildfire Emissions (AWE) – a forecast methodology under the Climate Forward program to recognize the climate benefits associated with fuel treatment activities that lower the risk of catastrophic forest fires and the emissions associated with them.

The successful candidate will be joining a software team including developers, designers and project managers. With support from SIG’s wider group of environmental scientists and consultants, the application will leverage public and open source data and models to develop an application to implement the AWE carbon protocol. The position will grow into supporting wider web application decision support services SIG provides. Examples include wildfire work with Pyregence, and land-use change (collect.earth).

Full Stack Developer - South America

SIG is searching for a Front-End Developer for a variety of environmental mapping programs in South America. The successful candidate will be joining a twelve person software team that supports a wider group of SIG environmental scientists and programmers to develop user-driven web applications, such as a tool for visual interpretation of satellite data to inform landcover and land-use changes (collect.earth), an Illegal Mining alert system driven by ML/AI (CoMiMo), a Landscape Restoration Suitability application to better prioritize restoration activities (Se.Plan). The work is performed in a consortium model with high-profile partners such as SERVIR Global, Alliance Bioversity CIAT, ACCA, Ecociencia and Imaflora.

Software Program Manager

SIG is searching for a Program Manager for the software team who develop a variety of products relating to our Natural Hazards, Environmental Mapping and Forest Carbon domains. The successful candidate will have product and/or project management experience or have been trained in either discipline.
