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 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 saves homes, businesses and services from blackouts caused by seasonal and extreme weather events. It’s a game changer improving energy and climate resilience.
The company have grown rapidly since the end of 2021. There are ~60 people now, with around 45 of those in tech.
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 would also be very helpful, or any knowledge of satellite imagery.
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 really 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.
