About Mast Reforestation:  

Mast Reforestation is working to make reforestation scalable. We combine tech and traditional forestry methods to reforest land affected by wildfires with forward-looking carbon offsets to fund it all. The company is a vertically-integrated provider of reforestation services to get projects up and running in weeks, not years: planning, the largest seed and seedling supplies in the West, massive nursery operations, and seeding and planting execution. To fund its operations and open new revenue streams for landowners, Mast Reforestation sells forward-looking carbon offsets that lock in CO2 removal for at least 100 years, among the first of their kind available on the voluntary offset market.

What you'll be doing:

We are hiring a Client Solutions Manager to provide critical support to the Originations team by managing the landowner qualification process for reforestation carbon project development with the goal of increasing the number of qualified leads that turn into contracted projects. Reporting to the Senior Director of Sales Operations, the primary responsibilities include cultivating relationships with landowners, land managers, foresters, and agencies to qualify and facilitate the close of project development agreements. This role will work closely with the Director of Origination and be the primary point of contact with customers during the qualification and contracting phase of a reforestation carbon project. This individual will work with internal departments (Business Development, Forestry Operations, GIS, etc.) to qualify, nurture, and negotiate reforestation contracts leveraging the Company’s vertically-integrated platform for reforestation. The outcome of your work will be the advancement of carbon offset projects that will result in tens of thousands of legally protected acres of forest while removing millions of tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere over the ensuing decades as the forests recover from catastrophic wildfires. The ideal candidate will have experience in organizational leadership, account management, or direct customer service with a 5+ year track record of successfully closing project development or sales contracts. Experience in timber, forestry, or other natural resources industry is highly desired. Seniority level will be based on candidate experience.
