COO position at UNISERS

Chief Operating Officer (80-100%, m/f/d)

UNISERS AG is a young start-up from ETH Zurich with a revolutionary technology to tackle the biggest challenge in the semiconductor industry, namely contamination control. Our patented products have been validated to tremendously help the whole semiconductor supply chain (components, materials, wafers, equipment and chip fabs) with quality control by finding and identification of otherwise undetected or unknown contaminations. Therefore, we will help chip makers reducing the amount of wasted chips (often more than 50%) and hence increasing their profit substantially and at the same time contributing to less waste and CO2 emissions.         

We are looking for an experienced COO to design, implement and oversee our organization’s operations and procedures. You will be responsible for the efficiency of the overall business and report only to the board of directors. You should be aware of the diverse operational challenges of a growing high-tech startup. You have the opportunity to build “your” ideal organization and procedures almost from scratch to form the basis for success of UNISERS. You will become a shareholder of the company after a probationary period.

Key responsibilities

  • – Design, implement and lead business procedures so that all employees can work efficiently on the topics they are best
  • – Oversee daily operations of the company (focus on HR, Finance and IT, but also involvement in production, sales and marketing)
  • – Establish a company culture that is appreciated by all employees and encourages maximum performance and dedication
  • – Support the CEO and the board of directors with corporate governance, fundraising and strategic topics

Requirements and skills

  • – Proven experience as Chief Operating Office or similar role involving finance, recruiting and other HR topics
  • – Working experience, ideally both in a startup company and a larger entity
  • – Strong hands-on mentality (you enjoy doing things yourself in a small company)
  • – Growth management skills (you enjoy structured planning and communication with room for agility and flexibility)
  • – Excellent team leading skills (you enjoy leading and working with international colleagues with diverse backgrounds and characters)
  • – Aptitude in decision-making and problem-solving
