Did you know that travel is the biggest source of carbon emissions in the UK and Europe, making up 32% of all emissions! Even though COVID-19 reduced the number of business flights by 75%, they're quickly returning to pre-pandemic levels and are expected to surpass them by 2026.
RouteZero is a young, fast-moving climate-tech startup that provides large public and private organisations with the only platform they need to decarbonise business travel. Our goal is to prevent millions of tonnes of CO₂ entering the atmosphere by helping customers deploy the most effective carbon-cutting actions. We achieve this in three steps:
In just one year, we've taken RouteZero from an idea to a company funded by InnovateUK, with products in customers' hands, including the UK Government, large consulting firms, and more. We've also partnered with Trainline, Voi, and other travel providers to help provide a seamless user experience in our products.
It's not easy to rebuild business travel to prioritise sustainability, but we're up for the challenge and are building the team to do it!
We've got big plans for 2024 and beyond.

We're looking for someone who enjoys ideating and inventing product improvements based on user feedback. You'll work closely with customers to understand their requirements and build features to address their needs.
We currently use Flutter as the primary language for our web apps. We use Typescript and Google Cloud Platform (Firebase) on the server side to allow rapid prototyping and release. This role is ideal if you have/are:
Nice to have:
If your skills don't match exactly, but you're enthusiastic and want to make a difference to the climate crisis, we'd love to hear from you!
We want to be a place where everyone can perform, learn and contribute with the confidence to be themselves. We are keen to encourage applications and interest from individuals typically underrepresented in the climate and technology space.
Climate change isn't waiting, and neither should you!
If you are passionate about sustainability and have the skills and experience we are looking for, we'd love to hear from you! Apply now by sending your CV and cover letter to email@example.com.
If you're shortlisted, the next step in the interview process will be a short phone call so we can learn more about you, and you can ask us any questions you have. After this, we'll explore your technical knowledge, including a coding task, and finally, we'll meet in person.
