SAF Systems is looking to bring unique Swiss know-how and technologies in the shape of spec houses to the North American market. The key feature of these spec houses is a unique, award winning, eco-friendly, passive-solar wall paneling system that has been developed in Switzerland some time ago and applied to numerous net-zero and net-positive energy/carbon buildings.

Europe's, especially Switzerland's long standing tradition for sustainable building practices has produce unique technological inventions and decades of know-how that we, at SAF Systems, want to bring to North America's sustainable building market.

This is a developing business concept with several potential partners and clients at hand. While we are developing the business and bringing companies and investors to the table we are looking to find one or two key hires that will become a driving force in developing the business, namely finding projects on the ground.

It all start with our first demonstration project, a single family house, ultimately designed for a new age living concept "Zero energy, zero carbon" for home and car. Ultimately expanding our business to large scale green developments.

Our "Spec house" narrows the companies involved in engineering, designing, building and supplying materials for the ultimate green home or multi-unit residential building thereby giving us a higher control over quality and cost.

Candidates may consider to work on a commission basis for greater independence or apply for a higher stake in the company as far a co-founder.

  • be versatile and flexible
  • understand building a business
  • have experience in marketing
  • have experience in sustainable building practices
  • be well connected in the real estate and design community
  • work independently
  • be able to multi-task
  • have good presentation and communication skills
  • be able to negotiate and build a network of licensed partners
  • be familiar with the wood industry and construction

The early hires (co-founders or employees) may be working largely on their own, with the goal to build two locations, one in Boston or New York and the other in Vancouver, B.C.

As a reminder this is a new business in its conceptual phase with a time line of second half of 2020 in order to committ the necessary partners and investors for the go ahead.

You may and can be an essential driver to this business being launched. Other key partners (in search) are builders, real estate developers and business investors.
