About Finite Carbon
Fueled by a fundamental belief that forests are critical to mitigating climate change, Finite Carbon incentivizes the protection, restoration, and sustainable management of forests by connecting landowners to the global carbon market.
With a focus on scale, we have delivered more than $500 million to landowners who have made long-term commitments to sustainable forest management on more than 3 million acres since 2009. We aim to deliver a further $1 billion to landowners by 2030. Our recently announced web-based platform, CORE Carbon, leverages satellite data and machine learning to democratize the carbon market and empower small landowners, non-profits, and communities across the globe to receive payments for implementing forest practices that store carbon.
In November 2020, Finite Carbon became a bp Launchpad portfolio company, which gives us access to significant resources to support our ambitious growth plans.
About the Role
As the Director of Forest Carbon Origination - Western Canada, you will support the development of Finite’s growing portfolio of forest offset projects. In this role, you will partner with a rapidly growing team of 26 employees, including 11 full-time foresters who provide technical expertise and implementation capabilities in both the United States and Canada. We service a wide range of clients including First Nations, land trusts, family forests, and institutional timber managers. Our solutions include project feasibility, inventory, modeling and documentation, verification oversight, timber-carbon decision support, and offset transactions. We pride ourselves on working as an advocate for these landowners and are committed to integrity and fair dealing in all our business interactions. We are seeking a like-minded individual who shares these same values to join us here at Finite Carbon.

As Director, you will develop financial models for landowners to review potential revenue and long-term monitoring and maintenance costs.
You will travel as necessary to visit with new and existing clients, team meetings, and industry conferences.
