The Ecosystem Services Market Consortium LLC (ESMC) is a member-driven consortium working to build an ecosystem service market that incentivize farmers and ranchers to improve soil health systems to help fight climate change and benefit society. The research arm of the consortium – known as the Ecosystem Services Market Research Consortium, or “ESMRC” – is investing in critical R&D for a cost-effective and scalable approach to farmer and rancher engagement in ecosystem service markets, an approach needed to scale the beneficial impacts of sustainable practice adoption on working agricultural lands.
We are working towards launching a voluntary national ecosystem services market conceived and designed to sell ecosystem assets such as carbon and water quality and quantity credits for the agriculture sector by 2022.
An important component of our market is the development of a secure Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) Platform to collect, store, and manage data inputs and outputs. The platform will include user-friendly interfaces that meet the needs of various users, including producers (for enrollment and data input and to track outcomes); technical assistance providers; program operators, including modelers; verifiers; project supporters, such as corporate partners and NGOs; and credit generation platform(s); and will provide an API to other data platforms. ESMC seeks a Senior Software Engineer to help lead product development and maintenance including both the technical aspects and product vision.
