The Air Quality Program (AQP) within the Department of Ecology is looking to fill two Cap and Invest positions. Apply here to be considered for both the:

  • Allowance Trading and Education Lead (Environmental Planner 4)
  • Auctions Lead (Environmental Planner 4)

Both positions will be located at our Headquarters Building in Lacey, WA. We embrace a modern work environment that includes high levels of telework, flexible work hours, and options for a compressed workweek.

Role 1: Allowance Trading and Education Lead: As the staff lead for allowance trading and entity education, you will be responsible for ensuring firms can trade—and participate—in the Cap-and-Invest market. By helping firms get comfortable with this new market and how it works, you will enable them to maintain a primary focus on decreasing emissions so Washington can meet its goal of reducing emissions by 95% by 2050.
Role 2: Auction Lead: As the staff lead for auctions, you will be a crucial member of the Cap-and-Invest team. You will coordinate and implement allowance auctions that firms participate in to meet their emissions compliance obligations. These auctions are the linchpin of the cap-and-invest program and generate significant proceeds applied towards the decarbonization of the transportation industry, improving access to clean energy, and advancing health equity and environmental justice.
