Our mission is to reforest the world’s 2 billion hectares of degraded land, addressing climate change at scale and without apology.
We develop and deploy sustainable, disruptive technologies to plant and nurture trees at scale, kick-start healthy ecosystems and support the communities which depend on them. Climate-conscious brands, NGOs and governments work with us to go beyond neutralizing carbon emissions and make a meaningful change for future generations.
Land Life was founded in 2013 by Jurriaan Ruys (former McKinsey partner) and Eduard Zanen (founder of Bugaboo) on the conviction that a business approach and innovative technology solutions are critical to rebuilding this planet. We are headquartered in Amsterdam, with teams in the US, Spain, and Mexico.
In Northern Spain we work with local organisations such as the Junta de Castilla y León to restore degraded land and reforest public land. In addition to regenerating large swaths of land in rural communities, we promote biodiversity enhancement and also support conservation efforts for iconic wildlife. This area is at extreme risk of rural depopulation and climate change.
Both in Spain and the rest of the world, Land Life is growing fast, we have planted close to 1 million trees in 2019 and foresee continued high growth. In Spain, by the end of this planting season, we will have planted more than 650,000 trees and are looking to scale up. We seek an experienced operations manager who can plan, manage and monitor our large-scale projects in Spain.
The responsibilities of an operations manager will include but will not be limited to:
You will be working as part of the growing Land Life Company team in Spain, and will be based in Burgos. We are looking for a proactive person who is motivated to work independently and alongside team members, as well as enjoys dividing their time between the office and on the field. There will be regular communication with other Land Life employees in Amsterdam HQ, both over the phone, email and in-person.
The following outlines our target profile:
Competitive start-up salary, exposure to a fast-growing international reforestation company and the opportunity to travel within Spain and internationally.
Please submit your application (cover letter, resume and, if applicable, an example of previous forestry/ecology technical plan) with subject heading “Operations Manager – Spain” to Willemijn Stoffels at firstname.lastname@example.org
Revisions of applications will be ongoing. We aim to onboard our new operations manager as soon as possible.
