Job Description

Title: Manager of Market Development
Classification: Exempt
Type/Hours: Full-time
Salary: $60,000-$75,000 (based on experience)

Founded in 2010, Oberon Fuels, Inc. (Oberon) is an innovative, CA-based company focused on challenging the status quo to enhance lives and energize the world. We implement this vision by converting waste streams, such as dairy manure and pulp mill waste, to innovative, ultra-low-carbon or carbon-negative fuels — like the versatile, hydrogen-rich molecule known as dimethyl ether (DME). In May 2021, Oberon began producing the first-ever renewable DME in North America and operates the only commercial renewable DME (rDME) production facility globally.

RDME is a powerful molecule that can be used to decarbonize transportation in three ways:

  1. As a blending agent with propane, which can significantly reduce the carbon intensity of this commonly-used, clean-burning fuel.
  2. As a cost-effective, low-carbon, zero-soot alternative to petroleum diesel.
  3.  As a cost-effective carrier for hydrogen, making it easy to deliver renewable hydrogen for the growing hydrogen fuel cell vehicle industry.

Oberon is proud to be part of a growing coalition of forward-looking vehicle manufacturers, infrastructure developers, and alternative fuel providers who are 100% committed to making rDME a key to the long-term sustainability of our local, national, and global economies.

We are changing the world, one molecule at a time…and looking for additional enthusiastic, capable, and creative team members to help us move our vision forward!
