We are expanding our Product & Customer Success team with ‘impact-driven’ roles in sustainable travel.

The relationship between our product and our customer’s success is the reason we exist. Understanding visitor travel, its operational, commercial, and environmental impact is central to this role. Reporting to our Head of Product & Systems Integration you will help our customers deploy YST to best effect whilst identifying challenges and feeding back ideas that can increase our impact and our customer’s return on investment in sustainable travel demand management.

Who? ‘You. Smart. Thing.’ (YST) is the leading travel demand management platform for destinations, venues, and live events.

What? Our map-based travel assistant service enhances visitor experience & increases revenues whilst reducing the disproportionate carbon footprint created by travel.

Why? A 30% cut in transport carbon emissions by 2030 equals about 16% of required atmospheric decarbonisation for climate stability. * It’s a crucial step we can take now.

How? YST helps organisations achieve sustainability ROI by providing personalised low-carbon travel plans for visitors that incentivise behaviour change.

Which? Live events account for as much as 80% of transit-based emissions. This is why we focus on the sports, music, cultural, conference, and hospitality sectors.

When? March/April 2024. Our approach is measured but there is a sense of urgency about helping our clients accelerate their journey towards net zero and beyond.

Where? Our platform and founding relationships were developed in the UK. We’re operational in Europe, North America, and Australia with roles available in each market.

*Based on 2021 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) data.
