About Us
Flash Forest is a reforestation company that uses aerial mapping software, drone technology,
automation, ecological science, and a lot of passion to reforest post-wildfire areas at a rapid pace. We
accelerate the rate of reforestation worldwide. Instead of humans on the ground, we transfer the hard
labour to drones at 10 times the speed. Living in the age of technology, we can effectively harness this to
restore entire ecosystems, scaling the global quest for carbon neutrality.

Flash Forest is here to tip the scales in the global ecological crisis.

With primary office locations in Mississauga and Vancouver, we are excited to have you as part of our
team as we expand to the world. This role is based out of our Vancouver BC location. The position will be
mostly remote, but you will be required to travel across the province for extended periods of time
(mostly in BC and AB but occasionally in other provinces and internationally).

Our Values
IMPACT – We started Flash Forest with the goal of offsetting enough carbon emissions to have a
significant and measurable impact on climate change within the next decade.
QUALITY – We work closely with plant scientists and forestry experts and will use multispectral mapping
UAV technology to select ideal planting sites and provide valuable follow up data on ecosystem health.
INCLUSIVITY – We want everyone to have a way of personally contributing to a large-scale environmental
solution through an organization they can trust.
COOPERATION – We are committed to partnering with local groups, agencies, scientists, and individuals
