We are looking for someone to run Mission Control Development Seed. We are a dynamic group of engineers and designers in DC and Lisbon tackling big global challenges with open data and open technology. Mission Control will run all aspects of our business operations. You will work directly with me to help Development Seed grow, scale and maximize our impact.

In Mission Control you will lead out all of our operational streams. You will manage our DC office, run events, streamline our business processes, and help the team to run faster. Every day will be different. On one day you might coordinate team travel; review a million dollar contract; buy a flock of drones; and help us to launch a new product.

A little bit about you. You run fast and learn quickly. You don’t need to be a technologist, but you must embrace the open technology community and a humane startup culture. You are a great communicator. You instinctively distill commanders intent. You thrive in a flat organization. You take responsibility for your own time and get things done through orchestration rather than authority. You constantly look for ways to make things better. You are good person and you want to make a real difference with other fun, decent humans.

If this sounds like you, take a gander at the Mission Control job post.
