Join the InfluenceMap Team
We are a London UK based non-profit think tank working on the cutting edge of climate and sustainability issues. Our highly original analysis of the climate agenda has been covered by media globally, used and acted on by hundreds of investors and has informed numerous campaigns. We are probably best known for our unique platform for analyzing corporate lobbying on climate policy. Other work streams are the FinanceMap platform assessing the financial sector and its impact on climate as well as a Japanese collaborative venture (the Japan Energy Transition Initiative).
Joining InfluenceMap represents a great opportunity to be part of a friendly and dynamic team, work with our global network of partners in the finance, media, and campaigning worlds and help develop our cutting-edge content which is helping shape the agenda on the climate crisis. We offer our team members the chance to immediately make an impact on the climate emergency using the power of data and knowledge directed through powerful levers.
InfluenceMap values diversity and provides equal opportunities to all candidates. Our current vacancies are summarized below, with details and guidelines for applications in the associated PDF downloads. We also welcome hearing from you if you think, based on an assessment of our activities, you are a good fit for our team.
Front End Developer
This will be a key role within the organization, and you will greatly add value to InfluenceMap as our work is increasingly driven by sophisticated data and technology strategies. You will work on data-intensive projects and platforms within our operations. You will also help evolve the underlying data and software systems that drive our work under instruction from our Technical Director, Chris Hurst.
Our Core System is written in Python and MySQL. You will be thoroughly familiar with these and be able to contribute to its development and maintenance. You will assist the development of public and team-facing user interfaces of our web-based platforms, based on jQuery and Bootstrap.
Working closely with key external datasets we deploy for our work, you will work across InfluenceMap projects including our core activity, tracking corporate climate lobbying globally, as well as new research streams on use of social media. This position would suit a recent graduate wishing to develop programming skills with a dynamic team in a mission driven environment. The closing date for applications is mid-March 2021, with interviews taking place as applications are received. Early applications are encouraged and will be processed as received.
InfluenceMap is a highly data-driven organization, and this is a critical role in our organization, supporting our teams in ensuring our databases remain robust and accurate. You will be responsible for maintaining and updating our database of contacts in media, corporate and NGO sectors. You will also take the lead in ensuring we accurately track the links between corporations and industry associations. This is crucial information that feeds into our corporate analysis and metrics on climate lobbying.
You will also support the wider team helping to manage data gathering processes across a range of InfluenceMap’s work streams. You will work closely with the Operations Manager, Communications Manager and the LobbyMap and FinanceMap Project Teams. Central to this is the efficient use of several software and cloud tools such as Salesforce.com and its applications. While this role would suit a new or recent graduate, it has the potential to develop within our organization.
