Conservation X Labs is always searching for extraordinarily creative and technologically literate individuals who are passionate about conservation.  We are looking for synthetic biologists, microbiologists, biomedical engineers, electrical engineers, geospatial analysts, data scientists, machine vision and learning experts, behavioral economists, coders (web & application), and bioinformatics experts.  As our work is moving into technology acceleration and scale, we seek individuals with experience in building funds, technology incubation and acceleration, and product development.  In particular, we are looking for smart, iconoclastic, impact-oriented, intensively curious, annoyingly-optimistic, driven polymaths, with a deep passion for technology and conservation.

We want our applicants to be individuals who want to disrupt conservation to improve it. We are looking for those who have dared mighty things by trying a path that others have not chosen.  Who have failed, but have learned from failure and risk, and whose faces are marred by dust and sweat and blood.  Who like to experiment, to make things, to hack things, to test things, and to break things (particularly dogmatic approaches to conservation).  If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you at
