About this role

You’ll need your years of experience in oil and gas (or related energy field). And you’ll have at least 10 years of field service management.

In this VP role, your focus will be on growing a new line of Operations and Maintenance business services, based at an established operator headquartered in the USA. You will work remotely, as you’ll be travelling at least 15% of the time.

You’ll be reporting directly to the Chief Operating Officer, and collaborating closely with engineering, finance, and business development teams.

In the first 6 months, your focus will be initially split across three main tasks:

  1. Identifying and winning Operations and Maintenance services contracts.
    You’ll assist in evaluating potential projects, providing input for financial and business modeling (SLAs and & risk analysis) and developing strong relationships with potential customers
  2. Leading and delivering 100% customer satisfaction with all operations.
    Hiring, training and developing a team to support you with relevant business development, operations, financial, analytical, inventory/supply chain, permit and procurement experience.
  3. Driving efforts to grow and professionalize the new organization. You’ll develop standard operating procedures, refine field safety programs, collaborate to automate performance monitoring and data reporting to customers, and regulatory entities such as EPA and ARB.

It’s going to need someone with an unusual mix of skills. Solid field experience combined with leadership skills that will influence the fastest-growing business in the organization. A skilled and experienced engineer with great people skills who can communicate a passion for operational excellence (and its value for owners, developers and financial sponsors).

There’s huge value here for you too. A negotiable competitive package, plus significant performance-related pay. We’re looking for someone for the long haul, and company equity could be part of your package.
