Job Description

Who is NCX?

  • The trusted, number one provider of American-made forest carbon credits.
  • Rapidly growing and backed by top investors including Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, Union Square Ventures, Microsoft’s Climate Innovation Fund, and Version One Ventures. We’ve already doubled in size once this year and are on track for another doubling before the end of the year.
  • Creating tangible impact in communities across the US: see what our Landowners and Business partners say about us.

Our technology enables net-zero pioneers like Microsoft to pay landowners to delay timber harvests. Together, we’ve generated an expected climate impact driven by the incremental sequestration of approximately 600,000 metric tons of carbon in the first half of 2021 alone. Join us in shaping the future of forestry and climate economics and see what the world is saying about us.

Our Goal: Create a Massive Positive Environmental Global Impact

We’re democratizing access to forest carbon markets and fighting climate change - that’s no small feat. But our ambition doesn’t stop there.

Up next: wildlife habitats, fire risk reduction, water resources, and more. We are building new economic mechanisms to fully understand and fairly value forests.

At NCX, you will have a massive impact on shaping our growth, culture, and product to best serve our customers all while combating climate change.

Do the Best Work of Your Life

Engineers at NCX write software that powers the largest carbon projects by acreage in the continental US. Terabytes of geospatial data are processed into a high-precision forest inventory, underpinning our marketplace. Thousands of forest landowners with ownerships ranging from as small as 5 acres to the largest timber companies are enrolling on NC X, looking to unlock value streams that previously couldn’t be discovered or measured.

Behind the scenes, our engineering team is doing many things that won’t scale. Given recent press and landowner word-of-mouth, that scale is coming at us even sooner than expected. That’s where you come in.

We’re looking for someone to join the team who can contribute across a wide variety of challenges. These include but aren’t limited to: devops, database schema, 3rd party API integrations, geospatial data visualization, and searching “how do I vertically center a div” on Stack Overflow (we use flexbox) from time to time. We’re looking for demonstrated ability and interest in learning new tools, and excitement about writing software that affects the way the world's forests are managed.

This is a remote position.
