Job description

“A diamond-mining vessel has gone missing. Three days ago, the ship sent out a distress signal and dropped off of the face of the Earth. If you and the satellite can’t find the ship…well, let’s just that we’re likely to lose more than precious cargo.”

The Tracking Game is a puzzle that can only be solved with the help of coding skill and satellite data. Your job is to embark on a journey around the world, uncover the secrets of the sisterhood, and come out on top.

What’s in it for the world: For every 100th solver, we’re donating $1000 to The Rainforest Alliance. (Play the game to find out why.)

What’s in it for you: Solvers looking for a job with us get on our recruitment fast track.
