Open Job Position: Founders Associate [f/m/d]

Founders Associate [f/m/d]

Revolutionize aviation data to help airlines become more sustainable, both economically 📈 and environmentally 🌎.

The challenge: While aircraft and airlines generate and collect massive amounts of data, this data is hardly aggregated and leveraged in the industry. As a result, decisions are often based on incomplete or even falsely interpreted data – leading to sub-optimal outcomes: unnecessary CO2 emissions and financial losses.

💻 Our solution: At Skailark we help industry stakeholders to take best-informed decisions and perform better financially and environmentally. At the heart of everything we do is a digital twin of the global aviation market. We model every seat on every flight of every airline with every aircraft. We estimate each gallon of fuel consumed and ton of CO2 emitted, how much an airline paid for each aircraft, we know the day when each component needs to undergo maintenance, how many hours each pilot sits in the cockpit, and so on…

📈 The role: Founders Associate (f/m/d): You keep the company running, setting up and driving processes to enable structured growth.
