We are a team of leaders in science, forestry, policy, and tech, building a cloud-based, data-driven platform to increase the pace and scale of forest restoration and reduce catastrophic wildfire, tree mortality, forest degradation, and deforestation. Our current software modernizes land management planning and monitoring with AI-driven data development, user friendly scenario building and decision support, and forest resilience trends and treatment outcome detection. The system quantifies potential and actual treatment benefits, helping to grow markets for ecosystem services (carbon, water, biodiversity, sustainable forest-derived products).
Our initial platform (launched in September 2021) is focused on temperate, “fire adapted” landscapes in California and the Western US. Our mission is global; our roadmap expands into other geographies and forest types accordingly.
Driven by our sense of urgency to protect vital forests and the services they provide, we use our expertise to build sophisticated, AI/ML-driven, user friendly products to democratize the use of data and accelerate the process of stabilizing and restoring our forests.
Vibrant Planet is backed by climate and ecosystem resilience solutions leaders, including Grantham Foundation, Earthshot, Elemental Excelerator, Ecosystem Integrity Fund, Chris Cox (CPO at FB), Neil Hunt (ex CPO of Netflix), Cisco, Valia Ventures, and Halogen Ventures.

We are seeking a motivated individual to join our Partnership Success team and help guide customers as they leverage the Vibrant Planet platform to run multi-jurisdictional and community resilience planning projects. The right candidate possesses significant communication, facilitation, leadership, and/or storytelling skills, combined with community wildfire protection or landscape resilience planning experience. A background in facilitating or leading multi-jurisdictional, stakeholder-driven community protection or landscape resilience project planning is desired. Additional experience communicating technical or scientific concepts to a layperson’s audience is also a plus.
While the position is mostly virtual, travel will be required. Travel may be up to several times per quarter. The majority of this work occurs in the western United States, but software deployment opportunities may soon occur across the world.
