Our mission is to provide every human on Earth with instant access to vital medical supplies. Join Zipline and help us make this a reality for billions of people.

About You and The Role

Are you someone that loves being put in a foreign environment and given the challenge to build a fully functional distribution center from nothing? The New Deployments Role will be spearheading the planning and build out of new distribution centers around the world. You'll be working with the Engineering and Operations team to tackle all the challenges you face head on to get our center up and running as quickly as possible. You will have to be technically savvy, be able to develop relationships with suppliers and contractors, and recruit a high caliber team - likely in a place where you've never been and where no one speaks your language.

What You'll Do
  • Develop and implement strategy to build up new Distribution Centers (DC) internationally
  • Source and develop relationships with outside organizations (infrastructure, site construction, etc)
  • Evaluate all options and a lean budget, select best people to ensure reliable and quality services and products
  • Understand and mitigate the risk of each DC build
  • Coordinate launch teams to rapidly and effectively build a DC
  • Create and optimize supply chains to and from the DC
  • Lead the initial in-country lead team to build and run the DC
  • Coordinate with engineering and business development to ensure the DC aligns with operational goals
What You'll Bring
  • Drive for excellence
  • 3+ years in project management experience
  • Background in construction, civil engineering, and/or project management
  • International experience, willingness and ability to spend 80-90% of time outside of your home base for months at a time
  • Ability to prioritize efforts among multiple active projects on different teams and work independently
  • Ability to execute on tight timelines and in low resource environments
  • Ability to drive effective communications despite differences in culture or timezone
