Our team

Meet the forces of nature dedicated to fostering healthier ecosystems for all

Our operating principles

01

Build for speed and scale

We are up against time to keep critical ecosystems intact. We strive to turn the best possible data and science into contextualized, useful information that travels across boundaries, scales, and time.

02

Honor stewardship of our planet

We help people understand how what their decisions today impact seven generations fromnow.

03

Make data publicly available

Data representing the natural resources we all depend upon should be part of the commons. As we create novel data products, we make them publicly available.

04

Collaborate rather than compete

We partner to solve hard challenges and support others in doing the same. The only way forward is together.

Join the Vibrant Planet family

“The science is clear that we can restore ecosystem resilience, but we have to move quickly and in the right order of priority. That’s where our technology comes in. We help our customers strategically prioritize resource deployments to avoid losses and maximize community and ecosystem resilience.”

Our commitment to diversity

We encourage applicants from all cultures, races, religions, sexes, national or regional origins, ages, disability status, sexual orientation, gender identity, military, or other status protected by law to apply.

We are most interested in finding the best candidate for the job, and that candidate may come from a less traditional background, but have capacity to grow into and thrive in the position after some mentoring. We do not require that you have experience with every job description task. We will consider any equivalent combination of knowledge, skills, education, and experience to meet minimum qualifications. We encourage each candidate to think broadly about their unique background and skill set and how it may relate to the role.

This is important to us.
We aren’t just saying this, we mean it.

Open positions

Help us turn cutting-edge science and unprecedented ecological data into actionable insights.
