Phoenix Launch Systems is looking for a new Vice-President of Operations. We recently entered into agreement with MOU for provision and support of launch service ground segment communications (more details to come soon). We are also negotiating an agreement with a partner for the design, buildout and operational support of the remaining launch infrastructure. Phoenix is also about to sign up our first launch customer pending final negotiations. Later this year, we plan to consolidate in a new facility at or near Kennedy Space Center so we can move into the manufacturing phase. Finally, there is NASA’s Venture Class Demo 2 acquisition for nanosatellite launch services which many companies in our industry niche are looking at.
Currently, we want to add a new VP Ops to our team to work with our CEO to develop and implement the planning required to complete the processes described above. Specifically, this will involve planning and executing our relocation to Florida and standing up the team there. This will include being heavily involved in the buildout of our facility and launch infrastructure and coordinating the workforce. The second main area of focus is on the creation of proposals and contracts with new launch customers, both government and civilian.
We are looking for someone with prior aerospace and/or defense industry experience, whether in the private sector or e.g. NASA. This is a Founder-Level equity position to start. We are currently working toward our next funding round and the VP of Operations will be heavily involved in that process. As such, compensation will be in the form of substantial equity to start with the commitment to salary compensation upon closing of the funding round. We anticipate this process to take 2-3 months to coincide with the high-growth period we will be entering.
