ACT’s Core Infrastructure team is seeking a iOS developer to help build the zero carbon footprint future version of our planet.
Sounds interesting? Read on.
We believe that the core problem of global warming is lack of global collaboration. Our goal is to support and enhance global collaboration facilitated by an ecosystem of carefully crafted software systems.
Just like Wikipedia is a computer facilitated collaboration platform around building the world’s biggest encyclopedia so will ACT enable collaboration around green shopping and help humans ACT together for a sustainable planet so that we can do our part to end global warming and also support fair trade.
ACT is software technology with smart gamification to connect consumers around sustainable shopping and collaboration.
The immediate goal of ACT is to reduce climate gasses and possibly be the solution to global climate change.
ACT is a role model of a democratic organization : Max. factor of 8 between highest and lowest paid, all employee members have 1 vote.
ACT is an independent trusted commerce partner - no one person or organization can control ACT.
We have just finished a major design phase and now wish to start serious development of the software platform. We are looking to tell the world about our extraordinary solution for ACTion, that we believe will change the way we manage global climate change almost overnight.
We need to strengthen our team, our advisory board and council with experienced resources within multiple fields : Management, Communication / journalism / marketing, Financial management, Fundraising, Life cycle analysis & research, Graphical design, Web development, Mobile development, Backend development, Networking.
Have you ever thought that it is impossible to solve global climate change and that your effort would mean so little?
What if you had the chance to work with one of the most ambitious climate change projects? We believe that ACT is one of the most hands-on solutions to mitigating climate change.
These might sound like just 'great words,' but do the math yourself : E.g. If only 17,000 people decided to use ACT to find the least fossil fuel consuming goods, service alternatives and register their purchases it would deliver a combined purchasing power of 63 million USD / year after tax*, which is the same amount Norway uses to conserve the Amazonas rainforest! And those 17,000 people could decide to ACT tomorrow!
