Our team

Our team of dedicated scientists, IT professionals and communicators are proud to be building a world-first collaborative commons and digital modelling platform to help solve the world’s ecological and environmental challenges. 

Scientists, IT professionals and communicators

We want to give our users access to trusted, world-leading tools so they can spend more time on the science that drives meaningful impact, and less time wrangling data and configuring models. We strive to build a culture of collaboration and interconnectedness to enable our users to find solutions to real-world problems – with nature at the heart of all our endeavours. We love what we do, because what we do is supported by science.

Our strengths lie in our team’s unique skill sets and experience in conservation data science, cloud architecture, software engineering, stakeholder engagement and training. Our agile team combines software development and IT operations to continuously deliver high-quality, user-driven tools, faster, and in short software development lifecycles.
