Data Engineer

Job description

Who is NCX?

  • A marketplace to help landowners participate in the nature-positive economy
  • A venture-backed company with top investors including Marc Benioff, Union Square Ventures, and Microsoft's Climate Innovation Fund
  • Creating climate impact across the US - ten million acres and counting

Our Goal: Create a Massive Positive Environmental Global Impact

We're helping landowners participate in emerging markets for carbon, biodiversity, and other types of natural capital.

We're building a platform to fully and fairly value every acre of forest in the world.

As an early hire at NCX, you will shape our growth, culture, and product as we build the foundation of the nature-positive economy.

What can you do with a piece of land? NCX Data Engineers can tell you!

Data Engineers at NCX are responsible for developing a distinct profile of every acre of land across millions of properties in the contiguous United States. We achieve this with a variety of remote satellite imagery and open-source tools and data to come up with the key characteristics of any given parcel of land. With this knowledge, we can identify the most appropriate programs on the NCX marketplace for every landowner to find new revenue streams for their land while taking nature-positive action like tree planting or harvest deferral.

On our team you'll use Python (FastAPI, Celery), Postgres (PostGIS), eoAPI, AWS (including CDK, Lambda, Batch, Elasticache), GDAL, and more. And you'll apply your expertise to help every other team at NCX, from Marketing and Product to Business Development and Platform Engineering.

Candidates who will succeed in this role:

  • are proficient in Python
  • have advanced knowledge of geospatial concepts, terms, libraries, and techniques (PostGIS, GDAL, and shapely should already be well-loved friends)
  • have 2-5 years of experience working on geospatial problems
  • embrace the challenges of an early stage startup: are able to focus on the big picture, and are nimble in adapting to a dynamic natural capital industry

Pay Range

$120,000—$125,000 USD


Earn an equity stake in an exciting, well-capitalized start-up.

Setting You Up for Success

  • 100% fully remote workforce
  • Full technology support
  • $1,000 budget for home office set up

Generous Time Off and Perks

  • 20 vacation days 15 company holidays
  • Flexible parental leave
  • Annual in-person All Hands meetings

We're looking for mission driven candidates with a passion for their craft. We encourage you to apply if you are excited about the role and mission even if you do not have every requirement listed. To be successful in accelerating the transition to a nature positive economy, we seek to build a team of diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and talents. We're excited to hear from you!

Please let the company know that you found this position on this Job Board as a way to support us, so we can keep posting cool jobs.
