R&D Projects Manager

Website Plenty

At Plenty, we’re on a mission to give people in local communities everywhere access to the freshest, most amazing tasting produce possible. And to do so in a way that’s better for the planet.

One way that we do this is through vertical plane, technologically advanced indoor farms. Indoor farms are incredibly complex, and require massive amounts of design and process work as well as training data generation – much of this work starts in Plant Science.

We’re looking for a Projects manager who can help us build the farms of the future by being the organizational tissue between Plant Science, the rest of the Plenty organization and the outside world.  This is a project management job that will demand scientific knowledge and interest, excellent organizational and operational skills, and great people skills.

What You’ll Do
– Develop and own project management for the Plant Science team
– Help to shape a culture of creativity and innovative thinking through project planning and management, communication of planning and project progression and helping to build the organizational and logistical grid that Plant Sciences will run on.
– Assist in planning and managing our R&D projects, ensuring that contractors are meeting deadlines, and that our supply chain is being well managed.
– Occasionally help with special promotional events.
– Work closely with plant scientists to understand their needs and ensure that the office of the PM is being catalytic to science operations.
