Heal the Bay’s Marketing Communications Department is
looking for a web geek with a heart of kelp. From being the primary caregiver
for our charming but aging Drupal website to improving UX to help us broaden
our audience and increase giving, we are seeking our digital unicorn. Here’s
how we’ll know that you’re ready to contribute to one of L.A.’s most successful
environmental nonprofits: You love coral reefs as much as coding. You won’t
make too much fun of the technophobes in the office. You are serious about your
work and supremely organized, but you know when it’s time to take a break and (briefly)
binge on sea otter videos. If you think you have what it takes and want to work
with 32 other passionate, funny, ocean-loving scientists and activists, we
encourage you to apply.
Heal the Bay is a regional environmental nonprofit group dedicated to making coastal waters and watersheds of greater Los Angeles safe, healthy, and clean. Progress toward the mission is achieved by effectively combining the use of science, advocacy, community outreach, and public education to create positive change in our local environment.
The Beach Water Quality Modeler position would develop and implement ‘Nowcast’ models of beach water quality at beaches around the State of California as part of Heal the Bay’s Beach Report Card program. The Beach Water Quality Modeler will be the lead technical researcher/modeler on a State funded project to extend ‘Nowcasting’ to approximately 25 beaches over a three year period. The modeler will be responsible for optimizing and calibrating multiple linear regression (MLR) models of beach water quality. This will require interfacing and networking with beach managers across the state, as well as our project collaborators at Stanford University and UCLA.
