Nanoramic Laboratories is an innovative, high-tech start-up company with an amazing company culture. We trust our employees and wholeheartedly believe in the value of transparency at all levels of the company. We empower our employees to make decisions that are in the best interest of the company.

By giving our employees the power to introduce new concepts, we allow those concepts to be willingly adopted from the ground up, instead of forced from the top down. At Nanoramic, continuous learning and education will be an important part of your job. We invest in regular company-wide education days and support each employee's growth and development. We are a company of smart, talented individuals who work hard, but also understand and respect work/life balance.

As a POA, you will be assigned to a team to help increase their efficiency and you will become a fully integrated member of this team. This will be 80% of your workload. The other 20% of your time will be allocated to people-related projects surrounding recruitment, employee engagement, and culture at a company-wide level. The POAs focus is on providing structure and rituals in line with company culture and removing blockers from within their teams. This is a support role housed within the People and Operations Department with an opportunity to grow into a more senior people operations role.

The focus of this job is making connections with people, motivating and inspiring them to achieve results. Poise and an engaging, empathetic communication style based on natural warmth and enthusiasm is the key to achieving the goals of this job. The work involves driving toward results by enrolling the commitment and buy-in of others. While the job requires strong initiative and self-direction, results are only achieved with the collaboration of other people.

A sincere appreciation for people and how they are each uniquely motivated is the foundation for designing and implementing interactive communication and decision-making processes. Knowledge and skill in how to successfully influence and persuade others by understanding how their individual needs and motivations link to goals is essential.

A self-confident, extroverted style that can enliven, engage and positively impact individuals and groups is essential.

The job has variety of tasks and is dynamic and changing. Because goals and desired results can quickly change, the job requires regularly meeting and pro-actively establishing relationships with new groups.
