About CBI: The Conservation Biology Institute is a non-profit with a mission to conserve biological diversity and build a more sustainable world. We are a cohesive group of scientists, geospatial analysts, spatial modelers, and software engineers. The geospatial team works closely with other CBI staff, as well as external clients, to develop solutions to complex spatially related problems in order to help support conservation, mitigation, and recovery efforts both locally and around the globe. The software team designs and builds innovative online tools, including Data Basin (a collaborative, science-based spatial data platform), as well as numerous custom mapping applications.
Geospatial Analyst Position: CBI is hiring a full-time, permanent geospatial analyst to be a core technical member of our remote sensing and spatial modeling team. You will work closely with colleagues to apply a range of tools and technologies to create customized spatial products for conservation, restoration, and natural resource management.
We are looking for a geospatial analyst with a strong background in GIS and remote sensing, demonstrated skills working with ArcGIS ModelBuilder and Google Earth Engine, the ability to communicate results clearly to expert and non-expert audiences, and an interest in working closely with a core team to translate cutting-edge science into effective, real world conservation solutions. You will work on a diverse set of projects alongside other team members to gather and evaluate spatial data, create metadata, perform robust, innovative spatial modeling and remote sensing analyses, document your methodologies/code, and clearly communicate results through writing, visualizations, and maps to a diverse audience, including decision-makers and non-scientists. Position is full-time permanent, remote optional.
Software Engineer Position: CBI is hiring a full-stack software engineer to help build science-powered, spatially-focused web applications to inform real-world decisions about conservation and the natural environment.We are looking for an experienced and versatile developer who is comfortable working with all aspects of web application development. You will work with clients, users, and stakeholders along with other team members to conceptualize, plan, design, build, deploy, and maintain a variety of applications. You will help guide and mentor other developers, helping them debug code, develop strategies to solve problems, and test and improve code. We will try to match you with projects and roles that fit with your interests and give you opportunities to work with new technologies and responsibilities.
