About NuminaNumina delivers real-time insights from streets to make cities more responsive. Our standalone sensing and data platform uses computer vision to measure how people and objects move in streets and public spaces.
Location: Candidates must be based in Michigan.

Numina makes a hardware and software platform that uses computer vision to help urban planners and municipal governments design better (safer) streets and public places. We sense bicycle, pedestrian, and other street traffic, and convert this data into real-time intelligence — without surveillance — to enable all sorts of partners in automation, autonomy, and development in the public right-of-way. We are looking for passionate people who would like to join us as we pursue our shared vision of more responsive cities.
WHAT YOU WILL DO HERE
As Operations Manager, you will work closely with the CEO, running both internal- and external-facing strategic initiatives to advance business goals and optimize team operations. You are organized and able to manage multiple priorities simultaneously, iterate quickly, and maintain a professional, energetic, and motivational work environment.
This role is part-time, with the potential to transition to full-time.
Act as an extension of the CEO on strategic projects — to ideate, vet, research, advocate for or against, prototype, and otherwise manage any Growth or Product projects that may advance Numina’s mission to make streets more walkable, bikeable, and equitable. Serve as a connector within the organization, and drive key projects to operational maturity.
Act as the main point of contact for our work in Michigan.
Identify - and secure - opportunities to expand our work in Michigan.
Meet with external parties, alongside or instead of company leaders such as the CEO, to represent Numina’s value, capabilities, product, and interests to potential and existing partners.
Prioritize and manage multiple projects simultaneously, proactively identifying and solving for gaps and inefficiencies.
Work with high-priority customers to ensure successful project execution.
Project operations - ensure that all project reporting and invoicing is streamlined as we execute against grants and other funded projects.
Team operations - be a team & culture champion, celebrate team wins, lead all-hands meetings, and ensure Numina is upholding our values though every layer of our operations. Our values live at numina.co/our-values.
Sales operations - learn our existing sales processes and make recommendations for further efficiencies as we scale.
This role may require travel.
