Job Description

Resonant Link envisions a world with untethered batteries to enable a healthier, more sustainable future. Our innovative, world-class team focuses on transforming wireless charging to:

  1. Power fleets while they work: integrating our fast, wireless chargers into the stops that already exist during fleet operation (think pick stations for robots or loading docks for forklifts).
  2. Eliminate drivelines and battery replacement surgeries, for patients, forever: integrating our fast, efficient, and tiny wireless chargers into active, implantable medical devices like neurostimulators, pumps, and pacemakers.

As our first Chief of Staff at Resonant Link, you will work directly with the CEO and Leadership Team to drive the most important organizational and strategic objectives inside and outside the company. In your 12-to-18-month tour-of-duty in this position, you will serve as an extension of the CEO to drive mission-critical programs, processes, and objectives with internal and external stakeholders.
