ecoPartners (, a global leader in ecosystem project development and carbon accounting consulting, is hiring an Associate Analyst to join our start-up team located in Berkeley, California.

  • The Analyst will perform spatial analysis tasks on behalf of our clients engaged in forest carbon project development.
  • Work involves analyzing land cover using ArcMap, acquiring historical satellite imagery, compiling data for analysis, documenting work products and assisting with project development.
  • The Analyst will primarily support the development of several domestic and international forest projects.
  • It is likely that the Associate Analyst will also play a key role in the development of groundbreaking technology to trace deforestation-free supply chains as a part of a global initiative to improve the environmental performance of forest conservation.

This position is a temporary, full-time appointment starting in April 2019. Most work will take place in our Berkeley office with the possibility of occasional travel (less than 10%). The position is a six month appointment, with the possibility of becoming permanent at the end of the six month period. Depending on project timelines and capacity needs, ecoPartners may hire two Associate Analysts.

ecoPartners specializes in the technical aspects of project design, planning and development: remote sensing, biometrics and accounting methodologies. ecoPartners has served as technical consultant for approximately half of all validated and verified REDD projects to date, accounting for over 60 million tonnes of verified reductions on millions of hectares world-wide. ecoPartners is actively developing projects in Brazil, Guatemala, Colombia, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea.
ecoPartners also works with landowners and project developers to build successful forest carbon offset projects. ecoPartners is working with numerous landowners in the United States to implement sustainable forest management practices and to monetize the resulting carbon sequestration value.
