VR & Climate Change Startup founded at MIT, seeking two Co-Founders (COO and CTO) and other team members (Summer or Full-Time)

Are you still looking for a full-time or summer opportunity? Do you want to push the creative and technical bounds of the Virtual Reality medium to change the debate on climate change? Could you help a 7-month old startup move from concept to market?

Before It’s Too Late (BITL), an emerging non-profit founded this year by MIT graduate students, has a mission to deliver cinematic multiplayer VR simulations to awaken and unite people to solve big problems like climate change. They have partnered with the City of Miami and other South Florida partners to develop their first experience, “Save or Sink Miami” to shed light on sea level rise.

BITL is seeking a Chief Operating Officer, Chief Technology Officer and other team members for Marketing & Communications, VR development and Climate Solutions/Social Science Research. Apply by sending your resume and statement of your personal goals for this venture to vrbeforeitstoolate@mit.edu.

**Note: BITL cannot pay anyone yet. Learn more at vrbitl.org.
