About CHOOOSE 

CHOOOSE was founded with one vision: to address the greatest crisis of our generation by delivering a simple, compelling way for individuals and businesses to address their unavoidable carbon emissions.  

While everyone is encouraged to work towards a lower-impact lifestyle, there are unavoidable carbon emissions associated with life in today’s world. CHOOOSE is focused on addressing this unavoidable component while accelerating the shift to a carbon-free economy.  Today, CHOOOSE provides a subscription service that enables anyone to automatically offset their carbon footprint. The CHOOOSE service is actively used by 150+ companies and thousands of climate-conscious individuals.  

CHOOOSE is building a different type of climate-focused company. Members of our team come from software, design, finance, and hard sciences. We think meaningful change requires a competitive, technology-driven mindset with a bias towards action. CHOOOSE has been recognized as one of the most exciting startups in Scandinavia; this includes being named a top 10 global startup by Richard Branson’s Extreme Tech Challenge in 2018 and winner of Best Nordic Startup XTC 2018 at CES. 

 

The Role: 

• Develop digital products in a small, growing, tech team in tight collaboration with our excellent entrepreneurial business and marketing minds.   

• Own the CHOOOSE architecture and make technology choices that ensure reliability, scalability, and security without unnecessary complexity 

• Contribute to planning, design, and implementation of CHOOOSE software

We are looking for someone who has: 

• Flexibility: the ability deliver within the range of ‘rapid prototyping’ to ‘clean, scalable and maintainable code of really high quality’. 

• An interest in solving problems without introducing unnecessary complexity, and who knows when it’s essential to invest appropriately in solving a problem thoroughly vs. when a quick solution would work well. 

• Experience defining and owning software architecture and making technological choices. 

• Experience building cloud-based solutions in an environment like Microsoft Azure. 

• Experience with modern web development and e-commerce. 

• Experience with API, App, and Blockchain related development is preferred.

Working at
CHOOOSE

Our vision is turning people climate positive. The core of the platform is low barrier and high impact climate action. We provide climate positivity (climate neutrality+) as an employee benefit and monthly subscription, as plugin to products, and are launching the world's first impact-backed token. We won DNB NXT as startup of the year in Norway in 2017, best bootstrapped company in Norway in Nordic Startup Awards - and best Nordic company in the Extreme Tech Challenge in Las Vegas in 2018. A lawyer, a serial entrepreneur, an environmental engineer, an expert on positive psychology and a communications advisor walked into a bar. This is actually the beginning of the CHOOOSE story; five people with different backgrounds starting to discuss why it was so hard for us to act and engage in climate change.
