Looking for an exciting challenge and want to make a substantial difference in your profession? Then come on board as *** Co-founder & CTO *** for a great startup adventure and help us build a world innovation to address the biggest and most urgent challenge of our time: Climate Change. Lukas, our current CTO, is staying but rather not full time, so we are looking for a new co-founder and CTO.
eco.income engineering is a very early stage startup from Hamburg (not founded yet). We will help the masses to become more aware of and change their unsustainable consumption behavior. For this we are building an App to easily track and reduce personal climate footprints. The key innovation: we are working with an open banking API provider and will measure the footprints automatically and thus user-friendly on the basis of financial spending data, so e.g. any credit card swipe. We have a working prototype and are about to launch it for a test run. Afterwards we will build the real product. This is what the prototype will feel like: https://projects.invisionapp.com/share/GZRAG4IA4Q7#/screens/355344929_Track.
