Forests play an outsized role in climate impact. Globally, the natural cycle due to fall and regrowth alone results in larger fluctuation in GHG than all anthropogenic emissions combined. The exponential growth in wildfires, thus, is one of climate change’s most impactful implications to both nature and humanity. And it is happening right now, worldwide. In California alone, wildfires are now causing billions of dollars in damage and emitting the same amount of CO2 as 20M cars or 10M homes each year. While wildfire prevention is 20x more cost-effective than wildfire mitigation, in the current pace and scale of mitigation projects we are falling woefully behind the need.

At Earth Force, we’re developing a software solution suite that unlocks the execution of the landscape-scale wildfire prevention projects crucial for combatting the wildfire crisis.

The Earth Force Engineering Team is seeking a highly skilled and experienced Senior Algorithms Engineer to join our team. As a Senior Algorithms Engineer, you will play a crucial role in developing cutting-edge algorithms for processing 3D point-clouds, implementing localization, mapping and sensing techniques and leveraging machine learning for advanced data analysis. You will work closely with a cross-functional team to develop our capabilities to “see” and understand the forested environment to better guide and supervise forestry operations.
