So, what is vojo?
vojo is a low-carbon travel planning platform; pulling together data on the European mobility network, emissions factors and citizens’ travel behaviour.
vojo offers a new way of looking at travel. Why do we travel? What are our options and how do our choices affect society, the environment and our future?
The Sziget project:
The vojo team will partner with Sziget Festival in 2019 to inform the festival-goers about the carbon footprint of different travel options to and from Budapest. vojo will appear as a plugin on the festival web-page; displaying the relative climate impacts of different travel itineraries (e.g. combined flight, train and coach journeys). The plugin would redirect the user to the vojo website with more functionalities, whose sophistication will be decided by the next two months, on the road to the very tight deadline with Sziget
How do You come in?
We are looking for enthusiastic people, with an interest in climate issues and sustainable travelling. We want to expand our core team and we are interested in people who would also be interested in joining vojo for the long haul. We could benefit from a variety of backgrounds, but we’re especially looking for people with experience in Front-End Web Development; Systems Administration (Linux) for Web Hosting and Scalability; User Experience Design and Mobile Development (iOS/Android). Due to particularities in our funding mechanisms we are looking for Austria-based developers especially, but not exclusively.
What do we offer?
We can offer only a small remuneration at the first stages of the project. However, vojo will grow into a startup still in the first quarter of 2019. vojo is a project born from the need for climate action in the travel sector, but we expect it to grow to many times its current size, and steadily attract new funding. To all people who become a part of the core vojo team we can offer the possibility of shares in the company.
For Front-End Web Development we are currently offering a higher remuneration than for the other roles, as we are in a critical phase in developing a well functioning prototype for the Sziget project.
