GREENSTAND

Image_201911240913

We are Greenstand, we are working on creating a transparent tree tracking system and collecting data on tree survival rates, which will establish a link that can employ people to plant trees and so alleviate poverty in some of the world’s poorest areas.

Success is when planting organizations anywhere in the world can easily adapt this tool as a way to measure and bolster their current impact. We believe that with the data we are collecting we can create a system that can reverse poverty-driven deforestation and accurately measure short and long-term effects of widespread reforestation efforts. A single grown tree can capture almost 50 pounds of carbon a year. Each year there is a net loss of about 10 billion trees on earth. Think Big. We need a net positive now.

What do we need?

This position is a little different from our usual technical roles, you will be required to work mostly independently as this is a standalone role here at Greenstand, so we do require someone with experience of developing with API's and other business tools.

We are looking for a strong developer who has experience in multiple API languages to support our Business and Operations team in building organizational tools and an internal knowledge/task base.

If you think you have what it takes please sign up https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe61HDJKVH16vtTxhXpbwCH-wTVN1e6XoVU1riWjJ-ne5SIiA/viewform?usp=sf_link and once you join our Slack reach out to Abbie.Vobes for more information.
