Director of Data Center Operations$130k – $150k • 0.1% – 0.2%
Crusoe is on a mission to help the oil industry eliminate routine flaring of natural gas and reduce the cost of cloud computing and cryptocurrency mining. We build and operate mobile data centers that are deployed into the oil field and powered by natural gas generators that consume gas directly off the well head.
The Director of Data Center Operations will support the deployment and operation of Digital Flare Mitigation projects and help manage ongoing data center operations. This will involve close coordination with VP of Operations and Director of Logistics as well as coordination with Crusoe's oil and gas client partners and direct management of field operations teams. The Director of Data Center Operations will be responsible for staffing operations with appropriate personnel to assure high run times on both power generation and compute systems, and will spend time in the field to manage new project setup and commissioning. Excellent communication and planning skills, team leadership, rigorous focus on safety, cost-effectiveness, resource efficiency, and timeline management are all required for successful execution in this role. The Director of Data Center Operations will quickly learn technical, economic and operational detail related to power generation systems, computing hardware, networking systems, satellite antennae, oilfield facilities, and the overall components and variables that drive successful Crusoe projects. The Director of Data Center Operations will also sometimes work directly with the COO and VP of Business Development on special projects related to marketing, business development, government affairs, and public relations.
