Terraso is a well-funded new open source project delivering critical software tools to empower communities around the world to adopt sustainable practices. The Terraso platform will consist of web services and modular applications that support local leaders in creating, funding, and executing plans to improve both environmental outcomes and human welfare. Developing this platform will require leveraging existing open source apps while also building new tools. Terraso is the technology arm of the 1000 Landscapes for 1 Billion People initiative. 1000 Landscapes is a collaboration with six leading global environmental organizations.
Terraso is a social enterprise project of Tech Matters, a tech-for-good non-profit dedicated to systems change. Tech Matters does not consult or do software development “for hire.” Instead, we undertake and fund open source technology platforms which have the potential to impact not just one or two organizations, but an entire field on a worldwide basis.
We have been working with community leaders around the globe over the last 12 months to ensure that we understand their needs and priorities. Now it is time to build a solution for them! As the Engineering Director for this small and scrappy project, you will grow a distributed engineering team from scratch and develop the technology partnerships that will make these dreams a reality. If you are excited by the challenge and the huge opportunity for social good, please join our team!
