About us

Have you ever thought about why we live in cities where we live in one place, go to work in another place, go to school in a third place, do our shopping in a fourth place and spend our spare time in a fifth place?

This is something the pandemic has put a halt to, and at Vakansa we try to make the city post-corona more sustainable by making better use of existing buildings and premises.

We know that the most sustainable building is the one that never has to be built, therefore our vision is to - Promote a sustainable urban development where premises are used by more organisations than one and therefore remove the need to add any new sqm in cities.

Vakansa helps existing & new tentants to co-use premises. Nationally we resemble AirBnB & GuestIt through our marketplace with services such as insurance, setting up contracts & facility management. Locally like WeWork by manageing our local hubs.

We already have collaborations with major real estate companies, NGO's, Associations and other organisations.

In order to expand and scale, we are looking for a full-stack developet that could take on the role of CTO in the near future! We already have a platform and are looking for someone that could continue the development of the platform. Please note that this is initially an unpaid role, meaning motivation is the decisive factor for us. If we vibe and work well together, we’re interested in retaining you long term, meaning you’ll be getting a slice of equity in the company.

What we offer

  • Meaningful work & relationships: Revolutionize the use of buildings, premises and facilities in order to empower actors in the city to access cheap and flexible spaces for an array of activies.
