About Vow

Vow is a food company -- a very different one. We’re creating real meat products from animal cells, instead of the animal itself. We’re bringing together cutting edge innovations in science, engineering, culinary and design to make sustainable food that’s both irresistible and available to billions of people worldwide.

The work that we are doing is a critical step on the path to creating a future where humans can exist in sustainable harmony with our planet. A world we can proudly hand over to our children and grandchildren. We are achieving this by creating sustainable food that is the most delicious, desirable choice of anything available. This is a mission we believe in deeply.

We have a fast growing team of 17 hard-working people who genuinely look out for each other and are fully funded by two of Australia's most successful venture capital firms.

About the opportunity

You'll join Vow's Operations Team and be responsible for our IT infrastructure. From procurement to user support, you will be our go-to person for all things IT.

You will use your detail oriented, tech-savvy and customer focused working style to ensure that computer hardware and software, as well as networks and servers, work consistently and correctly.

You will be working alongside a team of incredible scientists, engineers and operations specialists who are passionate about food, care about our future, and are excited to both work with you and help you to achieve your absolute best.

This is an incredible time to join Vow and help set the culture of our Operations Team - a team that enables Vow to keep moving forward. Come and make the positive impact that you were born to make.

What you'll do:

  • Own the purchasing for Vow's computer and general IT needs
  • Manage the deployment of custom Vow hardware into our labs and facility, including IoT devices
  • Troubleshoots systems and hardware to help the Vow team quickly resolve technical issues
  • Manage information security, including cyber-security and facilities access control
  • Provide training to new employees and other training sessions as required
  • Enthusiastically tackle any part of the stack, including hardware, firmware, data engineering, and frontend, even if it means learning a new skill or being out of your comfort zone.

In return, we will support you with:

  • We’ll work tirelessly to provide you a productive, safe, supportive and collaborative work environment.
  • Active transparency to let you actively contribute to every facet of the business.
  • Access to gym facilities.
  • No legacy overheads -- the freedom to define the best approach to solving problems, both technically and organisationally.
  • The resources you need to succeed
  • High-stakes work that matters deeply to the company and the world. A mission for you to sink your skills and passion into.

About you:

  • You have, or are studying, a degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or a related field. These degree qualifications are not required, so if you are self-taught, then you have evidence of commensurate experience and demonstrated desire to master your craft.
  • You effectively communicate challenges, goals, technical concepts and project outcomes in clear language suitable for your audience.
  • You're mission aligned -- you want to apply your skills to build a better food system and a brighter future. For some of us this is about animal welfare, for others it’s saving the environment or caring deeply about developing incredibly delicious foods - all different perspectives on the same mission.

Ultimately this role will be shaped around the right candidate. If you love the mission and want to work on some of the most exciting and impactful problems on the planet today we want to speak to you.

Vow’s mission is to make food products for everyone, and we mean everyone. To do that well we need a workforce that’s representative of the people we serve. We celebrate multiple approaches and points of view, we are inclusive and we believe diversity drives innovation - so we’re building a culture to match. Uniqueness is powerful - be yourself and come as you are.
