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 work closely with our VP of Engineering on our tree token trading API and blockchain sub-project.
We are a remote team with no fixed office, but our VP of Engineering lives in Rockridge, Oakland and we hope to hire a local student or recent grad to work directly under his supervision. The intern must be able to meet weekly in person with our VP of Engineering at Ace Monster Toys makerspace.
The right candidate will have familiarity with nodejs, in particular express API applications. While no previous experience with cryptocurrency is required, the candidate should have a keen interest in blockchain smart contracts, and be a self driven learner and engineer. The work will start out easy, but then can get as challenging as you want to go.
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
