Estimated Time: 20 - 50 Hours Over 5 - 10 Weeks

We are looking for a person with business analyst and project coordination skills to coordinate a project to integrate conservation data between the EcoEngage.NZ and the Univ of Auckland CatchIT data visualisation system and The Urban Rat Project system. The role will involve coordination with the CatchIT team and the EcoTrack team to define data requirements, then to liaise with the EcoTrack developer to set up the reports required to populate CatchIT, then to ensure that the integration process is working well. Volunteering your skills can make a huge difference to conservative outcomes. This project will provide vital support for the volunteers and community groups working to improve NZ's native biodiversity.

Working location

You can work from home, but may need to attend some meetings at the University of Auckland and with the EcoEngage team - either in the city or in Birkenhead.

Proposed project steps with time estimates

The project can be broken up into the following phases:
(1) Predator Data
- coordination with the CatchIT team and the EcoTrack team to identify the existing data requirements for migrating predator control data
- liaise with the EcoTrack developer to set up the reports required to populate CatchIT
- liaise with EcoTrack users to ensure that the integration process is working well

(2) Pest Plant Data
- coordination with the CatchIT team and the EcoTrack team to define data requirements for migrating pest plant control data
- liaise with the EcoTrack developer to set up the reports required to populate CatchIT
- liaise with EcoTrack users to ensure that the integration process is working well

What We Have In Place

The EcoEngage.NZ team is a group of volunteers working to provide better systems for groups and individuals doing conservation and restoration work across NZ.

The systems involved in this proposal already exist: see EcoEngage.NZ for more information.

They are in use by a range of conservation and pest free groups.

Mission
EcoEngage is a collaborative volunteer group set up to develop and support conservation software that will allow conservation groups to operate more efficiently and collaboratively - reducing the desk work and maximising conservation outcomes and the sharing of information.
What we Do
Our volunteers help to develop the conservation software EcoTrack.nz and to integrate it with other tools such as iNaturalist, CatchIT and relationship management systems. We are looking for business analysts, developers and support staff for specific projects and for ongoing support and development work. We would welcome volunteers with relevant experience and skills in helping to provide better, more integrated systems for conservation volunteers and groups.
