Supply chain Developer Intern

by | Mar 25, 2021 | Internship | 0 comments


The Ventilator Project, a new non-profit startup located at MassRobotics in the Seaport district of Boston, is on a mission to construct a low-cost, universally accessible ventilator that can save the lives of Covid-19 and other patients of respiratory illnesses worldwide. Tyler Mantel, founder of Watertower Robotics, sought out to address the biggest problems with ventilators during the Covid-19 pandemic: the cost of ventilators, which can be upwards of $40,000 apiece, and the lack of parts to build them given the bottlenecks in the supply chain for medical grade parts. The Ventilator Project’s mission is thus to rapidly prototype, build and ship ventilators built from readily available parts at a fraction of the price ($5,000).


The Ventilator Project is looking for a knowledgeable supply developer. This individual ideally has experience in a supply managing, developing, or directing role. They will get opportunities at running down leads, managing suppliers and agents, and overall being a force multiplier of disciplines. 


Required Skills:

  • Excellent communicator and strong interpersonal skills
  • This position may be on-site or remote. 

Ideal Skills:

  • Comfort in understanding and utilizing advanced biological and/or engineering terminology in both writing and speaking
  • Experience with organizational analytical methods 
  • Excellent time management skills

The team comes from a diverse set of backgrounds and skill sets, but each of us share a common calling: we couldn’t continue to sit and wait. We knew it was time to step up and find a solution.

LOCATION: Boston, on-site/Remote

DISCLOSURE: Current on-site volunteers are working in an isolated office setting while practicing safe social distancing practices. We have gloves and masks readily available, and the office space is professionally cleaned several times throughout the week.
