Full Time
As a Masterplanner, Opportunist, Wordsmith at Automata, you are exceptional at planning, excellent at finding opportunities, and your primary output is words - glowing, bright, shining, burning, words - spoken and written - delivered in a room full of executives and decision makers or on paper to funding bodies, R&D organisations and policy makers.

You are the initiator of new pursuits and projects - you will find new opportunities working with the Business Development team, scope them with Product and Engineering teams, create detailed project proposals to seek R&D funding and forge new partnerships, and if successful, bring them into the fold, onboarding the relevant product team and ensuring a smooth hand off.

You will operate at the earliest stages of an idea - while it is a soup of noise and chaos - at the intersection of Engineering, Business Development and Product. And in this chaos you should be able to see opportunities, plans and paths that seem like magic to others, and then lay them out for all to see.

Skills (none essential, all good to have):
* You are good at finding opportunity - in the context of the larger company mission
* You love planning - the ability to look around corners and accomodate for the unknowns
* You are a wordsmith - you will be doing this a lot
* You are creative and visionary - we don’t want bland ideas delivered with great prose
