About the Company
SpaceLocker aims to make satellite missions more efficient and sustainable. To achieve this, we develop in-orbit payload hosting stations based on our docking port technology, the "USB port of satellites".
Our vision is to become the preferred solution for sending equipment into orbit, so as to reduce space pollution, and to become the leading supplier of docking interfaces for satellites.
We are not trying to build a dog picture blockchain nor the new Airbnb, but a profitable company that will provide the foundations for the next generation of space exploration. This intention is anchored to a solid technical expertise, a quick prototyping approach and a strong link to the market.
It’s the startup world, with the good stimulating aspects, and without the weird fetish for table soccer: we are a no-bullshit company that counts on senior advisors and every team member to reach credible milestones quickly and efficiently.
SpaceLocker is a company firmly engaged about diversity and inclusivity, of age, gender, origins, handicap or any other characteristic (and we are aware of the slight irony, the founder team being the most average white guys you can imagine 😀) . Progress and inclusion is not just corporate speech: we are aware it needs actual efforts and compromises.
You have a passion for the space industry and for innovation? You have have experience in the sector and at an excecutive level? Do you want to be part of a dynamic and visionary team that is revolutionizing space missions? If so, SpaceLocker is the place for you. Our early-stage startup is on a mission to make space missions more accessible, affordable, efficient, and sustainable through shared space missions and the development of orbital infrastructure-as-a-service. We are seeking a highly motivated and visionary Chief Business Officer to join our team and help us achieve our mission. If you're ready to take on an exciting challenge and make a significant impact in shaping the future of space exploration, we encourage you to apply for this unique opportunity.
As a CBO you will work closely with the CEO and executive team members to identify and pursue new business opportunities, forge strategic partnerships and collaborations, and ensure the success of the company's existing initiatives.
You will also be responsible for managing the company's financial performance, including budgeting, forecasting, and reporting, and overseeing sales & marketing. Last but not least you will be in charge, , with the cofounders, of recruiting the starting teams especially the business & sales unit.
