VP of Business Development


At Zero Point Motion we are redefining inertial sensors to enable high precision
positioning and navigation. Our mission is to provide exquisitely low-noise readout of acceleration
and rotation using cavity opto-mechanics in a hybrid MEMS/photonic chip.

We’re a start-up commercialising technology invented by the CEO, Dr Lia Li, and with a founding team including semiconductor veterans, we operate a VC-funded, fabless business.

We're seeking enthusiastic engineers to join our team and shape our technology
design, strategy, and workflow. Together we will bring aerospace/defence levels of sensor
performance to commercial mass markets to transform indoor, autonomous and GNSS-denied
navigation. Can you help us disrupt the inertial sensing market?

Role Overview

As the ZPM VP of Business Development, your role will be to secure early B2B customer engagements for the novel inertial sensing products currently under development within the company. You will be working with the CEO and the Executive Chairman to refine and validate our go-to-market strategy, to identify a range of target markets and target customers within those markets, and to secure early customer engagements and co-development opportunities. A significant element of your role will be to co-ordinate with the development teams in ensuring product-market fit. You will be part of the core executive team taking the company from concept through to first sales and onward to success in our global markets. This is an exciting opportunity to join a deep technology company at an early stage and shape the future product and business development strategy. Drive, energy and enthusiasm are as important as business development experience - we are a small company with big ambitions and are looking for people who share our vision for the future and will help to make it happen.
