Job Description

Earthshot Labs’ is a science and technology company dedicated to planetary-scale land regeneration.

We conduct core ecological research and build technology products that inspire land stewards to restore their land, and easily onboard them to carbon marketplaces. We partner with world leading conservation and restoration organizations around the world to support them to develop, secure finance and certify their nature-based carbon project. Our just partnership model is centered on equitability, with a goal of driving as much money as possible back to the implementing organizations and communities on the ground. 

Earthshot is building two products that enable its vision: LandOS and Biome. LandOS is a platform for enabling landowners to envision and manifest the regeneration of land they have stewardship over and access carbon markets. Our intention is to build a product that inspires our customers to be bold, to delight and engage them while they envision the future possibilities of the land in ways never possible before. Biome is our Unity app that collects nature observations in the most accurate, fun and engaging way using the smartphone’s neural engine, camera, and augmented reality capabilities. The data collected is used to power both fundamental ecological research as well as to underpin our LandOS system for envisioning and manifesting land restoration.

Earthshot believes that people are most effective and happy when they bring their whole selves into their work, so they can unleash their full genius. We take shared breaths together, we discuss subjects that are deeply meaningful and at times vulnerable. We actively maintain a coherent field of deeply held love for nature and restoring humankind’s place within it. Despite our best intentions we are keenly aware of the potential problems inherent in creating a tech platform to engineer large scale land use, and so we are engaging with indigenous leaders, ecological experts, regenerative farmers, and other groups with deep knowledge of the land in order to ensure we have the highest integrity and wisdom infusing our efforts.

The Role:

We’re looking for someone with all three of product manager, designer and engineer skills who shares our passion for ecological restoration. Comfortable with frontend (React, Flutter), design (Figma), product strategy, customer / user research, who enjoys rapid prototyping and iterating to build great product to help landowners regenerate their land. We have 2 main products and teams (LandOS and Biome) and this role will be working with both. Biome builds mobile apps for collecting tree data in restoration projects around the world. This data underpins scientific work like biomass estimates and carbon project operations like MRV. And, since nature projects happen in many countries around the world, an easy to use mobile app streamlines many workflows. We have received an NSF grant for computer vision and machine learning research, to bring a futuristic technology experience to a field sorely lacking modern tools. We are looking for a navigator and synthesizer passionate about building technology to catalyze tree planting and ecological data collection at scale.

Who we’re looking for:

  • A passionate and heart-centered professional with a deep love for nature and a desire to build a more integrated future for humanity.
  • 3+ years product experience (customer development, user research, product strategy; e.g. many of the skills of a Product Manager though we are self-managed). This role will be roughly 50% product.
  • 3+ years design experience and excited to spend 25% of your time creating designs (e.g. Figma, wireframes, high fidelity mocks).
  • 3+ years engineering experience. You do not need to be an expert in React / Flutter / Unity but must be eager to learn and spend 25% of your time writing code and be self-sufficient to take your product ideas and designs to implementation (deployed code on production - of course our engineers and team are here to support and teach you!).
  • An entrepreneurial mindset - comfortable with wearing multiple hats, working closely with customers, designs and engineers to rapidly iterate toward the best possible solution.
  • Culture: The process is the product.
  • Distill actionable product feature requirements from the wide range of ops, science, and business needs.
  • Manage workflows for data collection, testing, and operations logistics.
  • Anticipate the strategic value of building technology and UX in relation to the business.
  • Develop a cohesive product technology strategy for working towards long term goals for data and machine learning.
  • Work collaboratively with a team of engineers, designers, scientists, and operations leads.

Culture: The process is the product.

By now, you’ll probably have realized that Earthshot is a different type of organization than most other companies you’ve encountered. We’re inherently mission-driven for profound human and ecological impact. Even more important is the way we work together: the quality of communication, team coherence, creating conditions for the genius and creativity of our team members, recognizing the comprehensive lives that we each lead. Our vision for team culture is informed by teal management, a shared love of nature, and the cultivation of healthy human relationships. Earthshot is fundamentally motivated by love, and is an organization where heart-centered people can together apply their world-class talent to the biggest challenges of our time. We are a natively remote organization, which means that people can choose to work from home whenever they would like, and we have team gatherings every 1-3 months to build team coherence, foster deep relationships with each other, and enjoy nature together. In the future, we imagine permanent retreat places for teams to work for weeks or months at a time together in gorgeous natural settings.

Earthshot is building a company that honors the awe-inspiring complex diversity of the whole earth. We prioritize hiring team members that expand our team’s representation of race, color, ancestry, religion, gender identity, national origin, sexual orientation, age, relationship style, and many other dimensions of diversity. We welcome introverts, weirdos, hippies, and anyone else with high emotional intelligence, passionate ecological commitment, and brilliant skills that maybe don’t fulfill the usual societal norms. This isn't just about inclusion or equity. We believe that the genius of diverse peoples and backgrounds is essential to create culture and technology that reflect the world we want to live in.
