Greenstand (greenstand.org) builds a full mobile stack for reforestation tracking and incentivizing tree planting. Our platform enables individuals living in abject poverty to receive compensation for helping to solve the climate crisis by replanting forests. We would like to hire a motivated computer science student to solve and code specific API, cloud, and/or GIS requirements and help increase our velocity. We a remote team with no fixed office, but our VP of Engineering lives in Rockridge, Oakland and we hope to hire a UC Berkeley student to work directly under his supervision. The right candidate will have opportunities to gain exposure to nodejs API development, cloud deployment (ansible + digital ocean), AWS queue services, postGIS database, GIS Desktop, and/or other technologies as appropriate. The right candidate need now have high familiarity with all or any of these technologies, but will be a quick learner and an industrious problem solver. The internship is 5-10 hours per week, ongoing. Come help us use technology to solve _real_ problems and make progress where it truly counts: for the environment and for economic equality.
Our mission is to enhance ecological health and integrity of degraded lands while supporting the welfare of local communities. We do this through active forestry restoration, ecological research, and social engagement. Our goal is to create a self-sustaining restoration platform that connects local communities in developing countries with socially and environmentally concerned world citizens. Restoration efforts are informed, and adjusted, by results of basic research on ecological systems. Through local engagement, we aim to empower communities to improve their environmental integrity while providing opportunities for economic gain.
Each year, forests dwindle while people starve, unable to find sustaining work. Let’s fix both these problems - with one solution. Help build a market-driven open-source system to employ the poorest people around the world to reforest destroyed lands
