Office Manager



El Segundo, CA, USA
Posted on Thursday, July 27, 2023

Radiant Industries is an El Segundo, CA-based startup developing Kaleidos, a portable, containerized nuclear microreactor. Portable nuclear power with rapid deploy capability can replace diesel generators used today to provide critical asset support for hospitals, datacenters, and military bases or to power microgrids at remote sites. Radiant’s unique, practical approach to nuclear development utilizes modern software engineering to rapidly achieve safe, factory-constructable microreactors leveraging existing, well-qualified materials. Radiant is on a fast track to demonstrate the first fueled operation of a new commercial nuclear reactor design, just three years from now.

You will be Radiant’s Swiss-army knife – a sharp executor who will manage travel and calendars for our CEO, COO, and CTO, manage our office budget and purchasing, support our engineers with deliveries, and coordinate staff events with our people operations team, among other duties. We are looking for someone who is comfortable with ambiguity, eager to make an impact, has a growth-mindset, and is excited to make our vision a reality.
