CarbonPlan is a non-profit working on data and science for climate action.
We aim to ensure the quality, scientific integrity, and transparency of climate solutions. We analyze solutions based on the best available science and data and build open source tools and data products. We work directly with decision makers across the public and private sector to help them achieve ambitious climate goals. You can read more about our work on our website.
The Open Science team at CarbonPlan uses software and data to facilitate our climate action goals. As the team lead, your primary responsibilities will be to manage our open source software engineering and data science efforts while providing technical mentorship across the organization. You will help align the team’s work toward our policy and product goals, including the data and engineering work that directly enables our tools, resources, and other products. You will also guide team contributions to open source and open science ecosystems, both in the context of existing grant-funded work and by identifying and pursuing new funding opportunities. In addition, you and the team will help maintain an open source software stack, and norms around software development and open data sharing, that are used across our organization. The Open Science Lead reports to the Executive Director. If you are passionate about open science and working on climate change, please apply!
