Chief Financial Officer/CFO

 

Our CFO has had to resign to pursue an MBA in Switzerland, so we have to say good bye for now and thus we are now looking for a talented economist to take the position as CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER (CFO) to help build the zero carbon footprint future version of our planet. Sounds interesting? Read on.

ABOUT ACT

We believe that the core problem of global warming is lack of global collaboration and information. Our goal is to facilitate global collaboration through our ecosystem of carefully crafted software systems. Just like Wikipedia is a collaboration platform building the world’s biggest encyclopedia – ACT will be a collaboration to enhance and simplify green shopping and help people ACT together for a sustainable planet.

●    ACT is a software technology with smart gamification to connect consumers to sustainable shopping and support collaboration in identifying ‘good’ products
●    The immediate goal of ACT is to reduce climate gasses and to play a big role in reducing 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 commerce partner - no one person or organization can control ACT.
●    All software is expected to be open source and free, so that all can take action.

We are currently developing the software platform and will have the first product ready for testing this autumn. In preparation for this, we are looking to tell the world about our extraordinary solution for ACTion, that we believe has the potential to make a massive difference to global climate change very quickly.
 

WHY ACT?

Have you ever thought that it is impossible to solve global climate change and that your efforts 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: If only 1700 people decided to use ACT to find the least fossil fuel consuming goods, 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 1700 people could decide to ACT tomorrow! * Assuming a salary of 37,000 USD/year after tax.
