PhotonDelta Foundation is looking for a Content Manager to help accelerate the integrated photonics industry in the Netherlands.
Who is PhotonDelta?
The way we live, work, and relate to one another is profoundly changing, requiring us to rebalance demands for better lifestyles with the world’s limited resources. From ecological agriculture that can feed the growing world population to the advanced health monitoring systems enabling continuum of care, all backed by a growing appetite for data within our 24/7 connected lives. Addressing fundamental societal changes requires radically different systems than those we are using today.
Photonic Integrated Chips is a key enabling technology that is revolutionizing a wide range of industries. By using light instead of electricity, photonic integrated circuits can sense, capture, process and transmit data in a cheaper, faster, lighter, greener, more robust and reliable way.
As a pioneer in the manipulation of light and with a bright history of innovation, The Netherlands is at the forefront of the groundbreaking integrated photonics industry. PhotonDelta was set up by mandate of the Dutch government to support and accelerate the emerging Dutch integrated photonics industry. PhotonDelta builds an ecosystem of organizations that can design, develop and manufacture world-class innovative solutions based on integrated photonic technology. Within the ecosystem, PhotonDelta actively connects with the EU, Dutch government, provinces, regions and similar photonics ecosystems in Europe, North America and Asia.
Why does the world need photonic chips?
As a pioneer in the manipulation of light and with a bright history of innovation, the Netherlands is at the forefront of the integrated photonics industry. PhotonDelta was created by mandate of the Dutch government in December 2018 to accelerate the emerging Dutch integrated photonics industry and was granted € 240 million to execute the national plan for photonics.
In order to accelerate this industry, PhotonDelta builds an ecosystem of organizations that is able to design, develop and manufacture world-class innovative solutions based on integrated photonic technology. PhotonDelta actively supports its partners with coaching, funding and access to market. We also promote the adoption of photonic integrated chips worldwide, engaging with a variety of industries as well as the academic world.
As a content manager, you will be in charge of the inbound marketing activities within the organization, creating and managing top quality content that resonates with our audiences. Content is king, and your mission is to generate awareness about the technology and the benefits it brings to the world (creating a buzz). On the other hand, you will need to position the supply-chain we are building as an industry reference, creating a pull-effect from the market that will eventually lead to new partnerships as well as tangible orders for our partners.
In your day-to-day activities, you will closely work with our marketing manager and events manager, as well as the different partners within our ecosystem. Our partners are companies and knowledge institutes that are considered leaders in the field of photonic integration, each with their own distinctive technological proposition. You will also be in the lead of the collaboration with the various suppliers you work with, such copywriters, media outlets, journalists and designers.
As our content manager, you will be leading and contributing to numerous valuable activities based on (but not restricted to) the following pillars:
