Fundamentally based on low-power, wireless network communications, UON Technologies opens up transformative possibilities in underwater sensing and communications.
Business Development and Marketing
Verified applications for optical underwater networks include pipeline and riser monitoring for oil & gas companies as well as perimeter monitoring and navigation for the defense industry. UON Technologies has interest and partnerships with various international system integrators, but the market opportunity has not been formally captured. This interest must be quantified with minimum technical specifications, and the business development position must work with UON engineers to determine the best path forward for research and development to capture a suitable and sustainable market. Documentation for the findings are essential, as they may be used in future rounds of funding.
While this position will deal heavily with business development, the candidate(s) will learn about technical sales and marketing, as the purpose of this position is to establish a stronger business presence.
In this environment, students must be highly motivated to help determine a future direction for the company to pursue. Experience in business development, sales, or marketing is preferred, but not required. While a technical background is not needed, the candidate must be comfortable with learning about high-tech products and R&D.
