About the role

Thanks for your interest in Oklo!  We are searching for a Technical Editor & Regulatory Coordinator to join our team. 

 

Position Description

The Technical Editor & Regulatory Coordinator role includes technical editing as a first priority, with a focus on regulatory technical editing.  However, it could also include editing externally-facing documentation more broadly.  This role would also be to facilitate regulatory communications (e.g., setting up meetings, tracking deadlines, putting together presentation material and meeting agendas).  This role has the potential to grow, including handling regulatory interactions or responses with external stakeholders (e.g., Nuclear Energy Institute, U.S. Nuclear Industry Council, Nuclear Innovation Alliance).  Experience working in a regulatory agency is a plus but not required.

 

Specific responsibilities may include:

  • Editing and proofreading technical and regulatory content ranging from license applications, technical reports, project plans, etc.
  • Developing presentation materials for meetings with a variety of stakeholders, primarily focused on regulatory topics.
  • Meeting setup and coordination.
  • Managing multiple complex schedules and calendars.
  • Basic project coordination skills.

 

Competencies

We are looking for a Technical Editor & Regulator Coordinator that is:

  • Passionate about clean energy 
  • Passionate about making advanced fission a reality
  • Willing and able to learn quickly
  • Eager to work on a dynamic team, receive constructive feedback, and grow with us
  • Willing to think differently and do things in new ways 
  • Comfortable in a fast-paced, highly iterative startup environment
  • Strong attention to detail
  • An excellent writer who can write in modern active voice, so make your cover letter compelling and write it well!

 

Who you are:

A startup person: You aren't driven by titles or hierarchy, and prefer efficiency to excess process. You don't need or expect to have a lot of guidance but you enjoy working in a fast-paced team. If you prefer the culture and feel of a large organization, that is great, but you likely won’t enjoy working with us! There is plenty of important work and plenty of good opportunities with organizations like that.

<u>Motivated</u>: You are self-motivated. You bring an enthusiasm to the team, and imbue a sense of passion that goes beyond clocking in and clocking out. This isn’t about a fake or arbitrary “pieces of flair” mentality or lack of work-life balance! It is about being a part of the vision and feeling a part of reaching team goals.

<u>A team-player</u>: Oklo genuinely is a team. We aren’t about taking credit for ourselves, and we aren’t about pushing blame to others. We do incredible things because we work as a team.

<u>An excellent communicator</u>: We need a person who is not only technically competent but also a clear and upbeat communicator.

<u>Creative</u>: Being creative means that when things fall outside clear scopes or processes or problems arise without clear solutions, you are able to identify it as well as invent ways to solve a problem or fill a need without micromanagement. The successful person in this job will not only be creative, but also enjoy being creative and solving open-ended problems which may change day-by-day.

<u>Detail-oriented</u>: This focus is a big part of excellence, consistency, and quality. Excellent grammar and spelling matter for both good communication as well as the image of the company that we put forward.

 

Minimum Qualifications:

  • A Bachelor’s degree or relevant work experience, more experience is a plus; 
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office, specifically in Microsoft Word;
  • Familiarity or experience in regulations and licensing associated with nuclear power is a plus;  
  • A passion for taking action to address climate change; 
  • Excellent editing and proofing skills;
  • Ability to work on technical topics and ask the right editorial questions about technical content.
