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, technology, culinary and design to make sustainable food that’s both irresistible and accessible for 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, something we can proudly hand over to our children and grandchildren. We’re not only making food that is great for humans and great for the earth, but also creating food that is the most delicious, desirable choice of any food available. This is a mission we believe in deeply.
In our short history since founding in April 2019, we’ve grown to be a team of 13 and gained a lot of attention for our world-first: the first kangaroo meat cultured in a lab (Wall Street Journal, The Australian and Channel 9). We’ve now grown 7 species and counting, with an even more ambitious plan through 2021 and beyond. We’re backed by Australia’s most prolific VC firm Blackbird Ventures, alongside a long list of prominent investors and partners.
As Vow's Head of Operations you will be responsible for how we operationalise our business by both building the foundations (i.e. build out our facilities, own inventory and procurement processes, manage financials), as well as shaping how we scale (i.e. build the Operations organisation, own analytics and business intelligence, lead expansions and operations experiments)
You're a fixer - Vow's very own Superhero. You're wired to uncover and then solve the complex problems hidden from view, dealing with unblocking all aspects of the business, you love having the autonomy to turn a young scrappy startup into a hyper-growth, well-oiled machine and will be empowered to do so. Ultimately you will form the backbone of the company, and deeply enable our incredibly important mission.
