Resource Innovation Institute is a non-profit organization committed to cultivating a better future for all of humanity. We measure, verify & celebrate the world’s most efficient agricultural ideas so growers can reap resilient harvests for the next hundred years. To take on the challenges of our changing world, we believe that food, medicine and other vital crops demand data-driven insights, shared with integrity.
We are seeking a Resource Efficiency Engineer to support producers with benchmarking services, education, and training. This candidate will help us reach more growers with competitive insights for their greenhouses and indoor farms. This foundational work will deepen the impact of our organization as we cultivate a better future for all of humanity.
Founded in 2016 to advise governments, utilities and industry leaders on the resource impacts of cannabis cultivation, an under-studied and resource-intensive market, we have since extended our research to other sectors in partnership with the US Department of Agriculture. We believe in making immediate impact that is deliberate by design. We are an agile startup with a diverse team with many women in leadership and fulfilling technical responsibilities.
Our consortium of members brings perspectives from across the field—uniting architects and engineers, growers and operators, researchers and analysts. By nurturing connections in our complex and dynamic industry, we can build deeply restorative systems for people and planet.
RII is funded by utilities, foundations, governments, cultivators, and leading members of the supply chain serving controlled environment agriculture (CEA). RII’s Board of Directors includes the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE) and a former board member of the US Green Building Council.
RII believes all issues are intersectional. Climate change can not be addressed unless and until true racial equality prevails. We therefore seek a virtual work environment where our employees and those we hire for project work are aligned with these beliefs and considered for their competence, not necessarily their education or experience.
Submit an application consisting of both a cover letter and a resume including a link to your LinkedIn profile. As part of the interview process, candidates will be asked to complete a pre-hire assessment. Applicants who do not submit a cover letter will not be considered.
The Resource Efficiency Engineer reports to the Technical & Operations Director (TOD) of RII.
