Skilled Volunteers

Share your skills and express your passion! At the Catfarm you have the freedom to decide where you want to invest your time and energy in. We are always looking for skillful and professional cats that want to help us bring our projects forward. From programmers, designers, builders, lawyers, gardeners, teachers, healers, cooks, electricians and pretty much any other type of professional skill and knowledge. We believe that everyone has something to offer, though if you come as a skilled volunteer, we expect you to be even more independent and open to share your knowledge with the team. Also, your main focus will be on specific tasks depending on the area you would like to work on. 

 

You may even start your own project and gather a team that you will be managing to help you make your ideas come to life. Check out our projects page to know more about this.

App Developer 

The New Pirate Economy (NPE) is about creating a sustainable marketplace that inspires genuine connection between people, creative reuse of commodities and a bold alternative to mainstream consumer culture. It is apparent that future trends are shifting towards a new economic model where money will no longer serve as the sole motivator behind trades.

This is why we are developing the Pirate App, where participants can trade goods for three things: skills, goods and stories.

The app will track each transaction using a unique QR code, showing the story behind each individual trade. The story of each trade can be recorded in video, photo or text and attached to the item through the app.

No matter where you are, the use of blockchain technology will allow us to secure, verify and authenticate this data, to make it possible for people to trade the items again. This way we can start a web of trading that we can trace in lines all over the world.

We are building an economy founded on personal relationships rather than financial worth. Trust is the currency of the future.

We are working closely together for this project with the Adventures of the Valparaíso.

This position requires coding and UX experience and it can be your official university internship.
