Team Rubicon (TR) is a nonprofit organization that serves communities by mobilizing veterans to continue their service, leveraging their skills and experiences to help people prepare, respond, and recover from disasters and humanitarian crises.
Since the organization’s inception in 2010, TR has conducted 429 operations globally, and created a roster of over 110,000 volunteers. While thousands of volunteers deploy to Team Rubicon operations each year, opportunities exist for volunteers to support remotely, including those with a background in geospatial intelligence.

Utilizing partnerships with BAE Systems and Maxar, TR has leveraged high-resolution satellite imagery for planning and executing disaster response operations globally. Volunteers part of the specially trained “GeoVis” team create geospatial situational awareness products that are used by the planning and operations team to make informed decisions after a disaster.
