Help us reverse the countdown on animal extinction.

Knowing that millions of species are going to disappear in the next decades drives you crazy. You want to do something about it. We are building a global online collaboration project, SIREN, with tech contributors from all over the world who team up with marine biologists to develop tools that scientists, governments and fishermen communities can use to protect endangered marine life.

We are now looking for a product manager volunteer to join our team to drive the roadmap of the SIREN citizen science software platform. After being named “Best in class” by the State of the World’s Sea Turtles (SWOT) magazine, SIREN received a lot of interest from the marine biology community from all over the world.
