DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
Based in the San Francisco Mission, our mission is to make wood without forests. Our initial offering is Ekoa, a beautiful, structural and moldable natural grain material made of plant fibers and resins instead of trees. With the performance, look, and feel of wood, Ekoa is carbon negative and poised to supplant entire forests of rare wood. Lingrove is pre-seed funded, generating actual revenues, and winning awards for Ekoa® in applications as varied as sports equipment to music instruments with coverage in Wired, How-its-Made, and CNN. We’re a growing team of driven pros and world-class advisors to help us grow.
You have experience in materials/engineering/manufacturing. You are excited to join an early stage company and jump between different roles to make miracles happen. You are a planner, but can also execute by making stuff happen fast and crossing things off the proverbial list. You are adept at implementing new processes and lead system level optimization for our now small team via effective tools and methods and an appreciation for efficiency gains. You like to communicate, present your point of view and even be client-facing as an expert member of the team. Your role, simply put, is to have the grit to make it all work.
