ConservationTech Mid-level DevOps Engineer

ConservationTech Mid-level DevOps Engineer

Location: Hybrid, 2 days in Cambridge per month (potential for fully remote)

Salary: £40K – £44K +12% pension and benefits.

Biodiversity is a buzzword right now.

The tide is turning in terms of policy, public attention, and commitment but most importantly, in terms of funding. The 30 by 30 target and commitments from BioCOP15 are leading to real growth in our capability to protect, repair and enhance nature.

This role will sit within a team of ~30 techies, UIUX designers, product and project managers, developers, architects and more who are delivering tools and technologies for the future of nature conservation.

Building roads, mines, railways, and other infrastructure will always impact biodiversity and for the most part, the UK has high standards here.

That’s not the case for every country in the world.

Governments are scrambling to understand how valuable nature is and how their infrastructure and economic plans impact our planet. Questioning whether a forest is more commercially or socially valuable than an oil rig or palm oil plantation? How do you even track that?

Cue this organisation, the only one of their kind in the world. They build tools and offer services and support to conservation partners, companies, and governments around the world to better plan for enhancing and protecting nature.

Tech-wise, there’s lots to play with; GIS technologies and tools are used across their portfolio. Primarily integrated into web apps built with Ruby on Rails, JavaScript and Python, along with lots of SQL, PostgreSQL, GraphQL and more as they manage critical databases to leverage insights to support all kinds of conservation projects.

You’ll be managing and supporting their web services and tools, monitoring infrastructure using things like Nagios or ELK stack, and managing databases using PostgreSQL in particular. Any experience automating and using Terraform, Ansible or similar tools and deploying software, using CICD pipelines is great and experience in testing and TDD is always beneficial!

They’re not fussy about what cloud you’ve worked with but lots of their partners benefit from Microsoft Azure thanks to the discounts MS give to charities in this space.

The work you do here will accelerate the positive impacts and solutions available to wider organisations benefiting our environment. A lot of these benefits are tangible economic and social wins that in the longer term will reduce our dependency on problematic resources such as fossil fuels.

So, if you’re serious about saving our planet and turning the tide against the fight to fix our climate crisis, this is definitely a role you should apply for.

Visa sponsorship is available for the right candidate with a strong alignment using their tech stack.

What are you waiting for?

ClimateTech Software Engineering Manager – Earth Observation

ClimateTech Software Engineering Manager – Earth Observation
Location: Fully remote within Europe, +/- 2 hours of CET.
Salary: €75K – €100K + equity & benefits.

Forest management is tough. Cut too much and we release carbon, too little and the risk of wildfire or damage to infrastructure can be devastating.

Vegetation monitoring may not sound very exciting but building earth observation software, utilising satellite imagery and Machine Learning with remote sensing and geospatial presents interesting challenges.

These systems are used to efficiently manage resources and team activities, saving time and money.

Most importantly though, this saves homes, businesses and services from blackouts caused by seasonal and extreme weather events. It’s a game changer in energy and climate resilience.

The company have grown rapidly since the end of 2021. There are ~70 people now, with around 45 in development and data science across 5 teams with one core product, each being quite specialised.

You’ll lead a team of 6-8 cross-disciplined people, building out new features and implementing deeply interesting product developments. Your key focus will be optimising the team, removing bottlenecks, and supporting them individually, managing resources and planning workloads in line with changing priorities.

Data processing and pipelines are critical to the work, and it’s essential you’ve worked with machine learning products in the past. Geospatial and remote sensing data experience and any knowledge of satellite and high-resolution imagery would also be very helpful.

Their tech stack is Python, Django, Typescript, Node and React, with Google Cloud Platform for managing their services. They use a lot of PyTorch and TensorFlow and various other data libraries or frameworks so you might be getting the hint that data exp is key experience.

They’re hoping to find someone who’s been an EM in numerous companies, having seen some different approaches to leadership, process design and implementation, onboarding, and a deep curiosity for understanding people. Empathy is critical and this all feeds into building a team who are passionate about having a positive impact and compassionate towards their peers.

They also want someone familiar with startup environments, ideally who’s been through series A-C fundraises and the growth that comes with bringing on paying customers and investment simultaneously.

The team are friendly and passionate, and the company are supportive with good benefits including equity, so you’re bought into any future success.

Want to help address the climate crisis? What are you waiting for? 😁

Conservation Tech Lead

Conservation Tech Lead – Ruby on Rails & JavaScript

Location: Cambridge, hybrid – 2 days per month on-site

Salary: Up to £70K + 12% pension

Biodiversity is finally raising the agenda globally, following various agreements made at BioCOP15 in Canada in late 2022.

Monitoring and reporting financial disclosures and their impacts on nature will be compulsory for many large companies from early 2024, particularly those extracting resources, developing land or providing finance.

Working for a conservation partnership of 4 organisations this role will be working on a geospatial mapping tool which tracks biodiversity over land and oceans. The usership has doubled in the last 18 months with no signs of slowing. The platform is also used by conservation partners and governments to allow for more robust decision-making and policy creation.

You’ll work predominantly with Ruby on Rails and JavaScript to build new features, taking some ownership of design and architecture as you grow into the position and learn how your team work best. They use PostgreSQL and have lots of APIs which require maintenance.

Interestingly, you’ll have the best of several worlds in this role, being employed by a charity with a large broader tech team and a strong support network, events and workshops for upskilling and a wonderful culture, while being embedded in a specific product team.

You’ll manage around 4 people, though this will likely grow to ~7 in the next year. You’ll take ultimate responsibility for the platform, including touching on things like security, testing, documentation and coaching your team, though there are colleagues across the partnership who can support in areas outside of your skillset, e.g., security.

As the tool is geospatial / mapping focused, any experience using or building GIS tools will be hugely beneficial. Knowledge of conservation, rewilding, ecology, biodiversity, or any field within environmental science will also stand out, as will a demonstrable passion for tackling the climate crisis.

The team needs a leader with experience, someone who can manage resources, assess future priorities and requirements, identify gaps within the team skills matrix and maintain calm when deadlines are looming. This platform is the authoritative tool in the sector globally, and the aim is to maintain that prestige and impact.

So, if you’re serious about saving our planet and turning the tide against the fight to fix our climate crisis, this is a role you should apply for.

Backend Python Developer

Role:   Backend Python Developer

Salary:   Up to £44K

Location:  Cambridge, In the office twice a month

Are you passionate about conservation and the power of technology? If so, we’re on the lookout for a skilled Backend Python Developer to contribute towards building a sustainable future for the business world.

This role is being offered up by a global data centre that believe in harnessing the potential of technology to advance biodiversity research and conservation efforts. The Digital Transformation team is at the forefront of innovation, leveraging Azure’s cloud infrastructure to build robust data pipelines that enable the analysis and interpretation of complex biological data for big businesses around the world. This is the team that you’ll be joining!

As a Backend Python Developer within the digital infrastructure team, you will play a pivotal role in designing, developing, and maintaining the data pipelines in Azure. Although the company isn’t primarily a Python house now, this role is a corridor for more Python projects, and they’re hoping to build out a team of Python developers soon!

GreenTech Software Developer – JavaScript OR Ruby on Rails

Role:  GreenTech Software Developer – JavaScript OR Ruby on Rails

Location: Cambridge, flexible – quarterly office visits, maybe fully remote.

Salary:  Up to £44K (+12% pension, healthcare and more)

Biodiversity is taking a beating at the hands of human expansion.

There are lots of ways technology can be utilised to help, rather than hinder, nature and our environment to prevent mass extinctions and nature loss.

This organisation works with governments, institutes, companies, and orgs globally to build and implement solutions that improve outcomes.

From maintaining critical databases and expanding data services to delivering detailed insights and modelling. Or building tools for niche purposes, such as utilising remote sensors to track the growth of reforestation and using Geographic Information Systems to improve planning efficiency.

Governments are scrambling to understand how valuable biodiversity is and how it intersects with their economic plans, questioning whether a diverse forest is more commercially or socially valuable than an oil rig or palm oil plantation. How do you even measure that?

The aim [of the organisation] is to be more proactive in creating software and services that others can use and feed into to better deliver on their goals.

That means being more proactive in delivering software, websites, and mobile apps and coaching or supporting their somewhat junior team to avoid technical debt and reach go-live for various projects on time, enabling people to make the change that’s needed.

A lot of their projects have geospatial and mapping elements, so experience with GIS tools and PostgreSQL is handy. Their software is built with Ruby on Rails and JavaScript, VueJS and Nuxt specifically, so experience with one of those is a must. They also use Python, MySQL, GraphQL MapBox, Esri and GitHub, working in an Agile environment.

As a senior dev, you’ll have a small team of 2-6 people whom you support, depending on your preferences, coaching them and doing code reviews, pair programming and testing so they can see and learn from how you and others tackle problems.

You’ll get involved in some more complex tasks like discussions on architecture and tooling, estimations for projects, resource management, and assigning tasks within your team.

They’ll support you in your development, too. It’s not just about what you can give, they’ll ask what you need to progress too. Whether that’s paying for courses, textbooks, or conference tickets – if you think of it, they’ll consider it, genuinely.

You’ll work with scientists and researchers and all kinds of interesting stakeholders to design, build and implement tools. The people here are exceptionally passionate so will chart their own path where possible. You’ll facilitate some of that and be able to do the same.

If you’re serious about saving our planet this is definitely the role you should apply for.

ClimateTech GIS Operations Analyst

ClimateTech GIS Operations Analyst

Location: Cambridge, flexible – quarterly office visits, maybe fully remote.

Salary: Up to €75K + Equity and benefits

Biodiversity is taking a beating at the hands of human activity.

Vegetation management may not sound all that exciting but building earth observation software to integrate satellite imagery, geospatial analysis and Machine Learning with data coming in from teams, remote sensors and other hardware on the ground certainly does!

The key focuses of this role will be building and optimising GIS infographics for customers, running the more complex analysis they may struggle with and reviewing how this company structures their data for storage and reuse in future scenarios to raise the value of analysis that is completed.

Their customer base is spread across multiple regions, and they’ve expanded quickly so experience working with global or regionally diverse customers will be beneficial. Also, if you’ve worked with mapping and overlays for assets, such as EV charge points or optimising the location of remote sensors, that’d be helpful – and this can be quite broad.

They use Google Cloud Platform and Python alongside modern Typescript, ES6, ES7 and frameworks like React and NodeJS. They’re not looking for this person to be an engineer but any familiarity with those technologies will stand out.

It’s likely that this person will be an early member of the team that will need to grow through 2024, so some leadership opportunities are likely. You’ll also be establishing the standards for how they run GIS analysis moving forward, looking to reduce errors and improve customer experience.

You’ll support the development and data teams on various projects too as so much of the work here incorporates or integrates geospatial and remote sensing data. Some projects you’ll own and build out, others you’ll review and contribute to.

The team here are highly passionate, having been quickly growing this year and are set to continue that growth with the rate at which they’re acquiring new customers. In future, they will look to expand into other product lines to support additional industries in delivering climate solutions.

If you’re serious about saving our planet this is definitely a role you should apply for.

Product Manager – Sustainability

Role:  Product Manager (Sustainability)

Salary:  £50k to £60k per annum base + bonus and benefits

Location:  2 times a week in the West Midlands / Warwickshire during probation (can be largely remote thereafter)

Sector – ESG / Sustainability

You’re a highly talented Product professional.  You build rock-solid roadmaps, are highly data-led and drive product development teams forward to get things delivered.

But are the Products you are currently delivering helping to make the world a better, more sustainable place?

Perhaps that’s becoming increasingly important to you, or at the very least you like the idea of working as a PM at a company with a growing global footprint, super-talented individuals and a track record of progressing careers.

We’ve worked with this company for years and have been proud to see many of our placements go on to great things there.  The feedback from them is always positive and, whilst they have their challenges (as do all fast-growing companies), they treat people well and have everyone bought into the company vision.

In this role you will be looking after a product portfolio of 3 large internally facing products.  You will be supported by two Business Analysts and will be working with a development team based across the UK with some offshore support.

To be clear, whilst there may be some new product development, this role is more concerned with taking the company’s existing products and making them fit for the company’s growth and expansion plans.

If you are the sort of Product Manager who gets their kicks by undertaking deep user research and mapping out competitive markets whilst visioning new products this probably isn’t the role for you!

The company has a wealth of knowledge and experience that you will be able to draw on internally, so this would suit someone who has worked in a more internal delivery-focused Product Management role as opposed to a commercially driven PM background.

Your previous title is not so important, so if you are a Product Manager, a Product Owner or hold any other title, as long as you have a proven track record in developing product roadmaps and working with software development teams to ensure effective delivery of these, then you will be considered for the position.

On offer is a base salary up to £60k, a generous pension scheme, bonus, life assurance and subsidized gym membership.

Please do apply or call us to discuss further!

Senior GreenTech DevOps Engineer

Senior GreenTech DevOps Engineer

Salary: €75,000 – €90,000 + equity + remote setup, conference, and training budgets.

Location: Fully remote – Europe or UK based.

Forest management can be challenging. Cut too much and you’re causing unnecessary damage, too little and the risk of wildfire or damage to infrastructure can be devastating and costly.

Vegetation management may not sound all that exciting but building earth observation software to integrate satellite imagery and Machine Learning with data coming in from team and remote sensors and other hardware on the ground presents interesting challenges!

These systems are used to efficiently manage resources and team activities, saving time and money.

Most importantly though, this saves homes, businesses and services from blackouts caused by seasonal and extreme weather events. It’s a game changer in energy and climate resilience.

The company have grown rapidly since the end of 2021. There are ~60 people now, with around 40 of those in development and data science.

They hired a DevOps Engineer in Jan 2023 and are growing that team as they look to scale their systems and build resilience ahead of a Series A fundraiser in early 2024.

You’ll support the data and software engineering teams to ensure new features go live seamlessly, and that new services have the capacity they need to run efficiently. Ensuring monitoring and alerting is set up will also be key, as well as implementing some security protocols in collaboration with the director of CloudSec.

They use Google Cloud Platform but understand AWS is largely transferrable, alongside Docker, Kubernetes and Dagster. But experience with Argo, Airflow, Dask or others is transferrable.

If you’ve worked with satellite data or imagery, that’s hugely valuable, and Pangeo stack, so JupyterHub, Xarrat or Zarr will also stand out.

They’re keen to find someone with experience working in startups, ideally with satellite imagery in some capacity, at the very least with large and complex data systems that include high-resolution image-based and geospatial data. 

If you’ve not worked with satellite imagery or geospatial data, but you’re a bit of a security expert and are keen to expand your responsibilities there, this could still work if you’ve worked with huge data systems.

Following that, a real passion for climate solutions is something they’ll need to see.

They care about their staff. They have a 13% vacation stipend to send you on some epic holidays and contribute to your training and development, and operate truly flexibly – so long as you’re available and overlap with the team (+/- 3-hour CET is best) you can work when you chose.

If this sounds like a bit of you please reach out. They’re remote first and will consider people anywhere in Europe. They can also provide visa sponsorship via a Netherlands government salary sacrifice scheme if you’d prefer to move to the Netherlands.

GreenTech Technical Delivery Lead

GreenTech Tech Delivery Lead

Location: Fully remote within Europe, +/- 1 hour of CET.
Salary: €70K – €85K + 13% vacation supplement + equity & benefits.

Vegetation management. Harder than it sounds. Cut too much; cause unnecessary damage, too little and the risk of wildfire or damage to infrastructure can be devastating and costly.

Vegetation management may not sound that exciting but building earth observation software to integrate satellite imagery with geospatial analysis and Machine Learning with data coming in from teams, remote sensors and other hardware on the ground presents interesting challenges! 

These systems are used to efficiently manage resources and team activities, saving time and money.

Most importantly though, this protects as much nature as possible while saving homes, businesses, and services from blackouts caused by seasonal and extreme weather events. Literally improving energy and climate resilience.

The company have grown rapidly since the end of 2021. There are ~60 people now, with around 30 of those in development and geospatial / data science.

The data science team are growing to increase the capacity of their systems for their existing clients, and to meet demand as new clients with ever-more-interesting requirements come online. They need someone to support these efforts to utilise the tools they’ve built to bring value from satellite imagery and other geospatial datasets, analysing those using machine learning, and delivering the end results to customers.

You’ll work with commercial teams and customers to understand their needs, what existing solutions can be applied, what’s already planned and in development and what future capabilities can be delivered. You’ll design bespoke solutions and wrangle the necessary people to deliver those.

Also, supporting software engineering and data science teams to improve and create products and tools, define risk, strategy and resource management alongside executing delivery plans in line with estimations.

This role is somewhat hybrid, touching on technical project management, with some hands-on work using Python and Jupyter notebooks to implement fixes, optimise and configure tools and generally tie off loose ends where needed, so you’ll be ~30% hands-on.

Commercial remote sensing experience and satellite imagery exp are a huge benefit, but having experience with Python and Jupyter Notebooks is a must, and they’re keen to speak with people who’ve worked at start-ups or small companies where close customer relationships and interaction are/were the norm. 

Predominantly they use Python, but they also work pretty heavily with GIS technologies and tools. They also use PyTorth and Tensorflow, so experience with similar frameworks or libraries will be transferrable, especially if you have that remote sensing, geospatial or satellite data exp.

There will be projects that others lead, and you review or support, but you will take the lead on lots of different projects, some small, some larger. The team are friendly and passionate, and the company are supportive with good benefits including equity, so you’ve bought into any future success.

What are you waiting for – if this sounds interesting and you have done 60-70%, or more, of what’s mentioned above in some form, do hit apply.
