  • Day-to-day management of operations: from budgeting and accounting to scaling up the team to implementing new HR processes.
  • Operational planning: work with the founders to identify and assess opportunities to improve Orbital Materials and accelerate our progress.
  • Conduct analysis and reporting: to inform operational decisions and ensure we’re on track to achieve our milestones and can share progress with our stakeholders (inc. investors).


  • Exceptional project and program management skills, capable of juggling multiple projects simultaneously.
  • Well-organized, with superb attention to detail and the ability to execute tasks efficiently.
  • Adaptable to changing circumstances.
  • Experience in operations and strategy, including the establishment of new processes and accounting.
  • At least 4 years experience in technology, science, operations or startups.


  • Competitive salary
