Looking for a Tech4Good role where you can use your skills to help nature and the planet? The NBN Trust is the UK charity dedicated to “making data work for nature”. We’re a wildlife charity and tech charity rolled into one!

This is an exciting time to be involved in biodiversity data. New global and national targets for tackling the nature crisis will only work if they’re supported by sound evidence. Which is where we come in. Our NBN Atlas brings together wildlife data from 178 nature organisations across the UK and makes it accessible to all.

You’ll need full stack coding skills and be happy to get stuck in doing a bit of everything (polyglot style), with experience as follows:

  • Object Oriented Programming
  • MVC frameworks (ideally Java EE/Spring/Grails but would consider .NET)
  • Rest Web Services
  • ORM such as Hibernate
  • Working knowledge of Linux
  • MySQL or PostgreSQL
  • JavaScript, jQuery, CSS.

Sometimes you’ll be given a blank canvas, and it will be up to you to work out what to do and how to do it. You’ll also need to be happy working on complex and sometimes undocumented code – it’s all part of the challenge of working on the NBN Atlas!

We’d like you to be someone who’s passionate about making a difference, and who enjoys being part of a team but is also able to work independently using your own initiative. You should have excellent organisational, problem-solving and communication skills. Applicants must be UK-based and eligible to work in the UK. We can offer you:

A meaningful role making a genuine difference for nature.

Your place in a small, friendly and mutually supportive team.

Flexible, fully remote working with occasional travel. 28 days leave per annum.

The NBN Trust is an equal opportunities employer and we're striving to create a diverse and inclusive team. Please email us at to arrange an introductory call with our Lead Developer.
