About Redwood Materials

Redwood Materials was founded in 2017 to create a circular supply chain for electric vehicles and clean energy products, making them more sustainable and driving down the cost for batteries. We’re doing this by developing and deploying new technologies to increase the scope and scale of recycled and sustainable materials in the global battery supply chain.

Product Manager, Refining 

We are seeking a Product Manager for our Refining Business at Redwood. In our Refining operations, we take products from our Recycling operations (produced both internally and externally purchased) and convert them to nickel, cobalt and lithium intermediates capable for use in the synthesis of new battery materials.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Being the flywheel behind our refining products business, cross functionally with sales, sourcing, operations, finance, logistics, and quality. You’re part architect, part coordinator, and part strategist.
  • Trouble shooter and problem solver - responsible for making sure the business is gliding – the plant is at full utilization, with a strong customer mix, and that we’re exceeding customer expectations, producing the best recycled material in the world.
  • While you won’t be responsible for making the product (that’s operations), you’ll be held accountable for making sure the product is made profitably, considering sourcing cost structures, operating costs, and sales revenue. You’ll have the P&L memorized, with a keen eye to overall margin. You’ll balance a plethora of inputs and make hard decisions and trade-offs along the way.
  • Develop KPIs for the business and hold the org (and yourself) to them (think Excel, PowerBi). The S&IOP team is going to look to you for input.
  • Develop product pricing and product positioning strategies, working with our global sales team.
  • Create sales plans and work with supply chain on production planning and volumes.
  • Identify future growth opportunities for the Refining business. What should we do? What shouldn’t we do? How do we scale bigger and faster? What are our bottlenecks and how do we eliminate them? What should we prioritize?
  • We speak in data, so you’ll have to be able to back it up with facts, analysis, and scenario planning. You’ll develop business cases and justify them. Call it strategy, but you’ll need to bring it back down to earth too, with an actual executable plan.
  • Strong analytical skills with the ability to query data from various systems to solve problems.
  • Develop a solid understanding of the recycling and battery materials industry, our market (battery cell and EV OEMs) and technology trends.

Desired Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry, Engineering or Finance/Business Administration
  • 3-5 years’ experience in business planning, business/product management, new business development, sales & marketing, procurement, or corporate strategy; global commercial experience is a plus.
  • Battery, Battery Materials, Battery Metals (mining or recycled) industry experience is helpful.
  • Smart, scrappy, entrepreneurial – having a bias for action and a lot of grit
  • Our business is “dynamic,” meaning our market and we can change quickly. You’ll need to be comfortable in a startup environment. Think independent, motivated, self-starter.
  • Strong analytical skills are required. You should be able to interpret data/analysis and intuitively identify/troubleshoot gaps in quantitative analysis. 
  • You won’t have the entire organization reporting to you, but you’ll need to be able to influence them to accomplish your goals. An ability to foster and maintain relationships both internally and externally is essential.
  • A passion for sustainability and making the world a better place!

 

The position is full-time. Compensation will be commensurate with experience.

Form CC-305
Page 1 of 1
OMB Control Number 1250-0005

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
