Operations Manager

Swedish innovation meets Australian ingenuity; we are Orexplore.

Founded in Sweden, and a former subsidiary of Swick Mining Services, Orexplore Technologies, headquartered in Perth, is an Australian publicly listed technology company.

As our Australian HQ and world-class R&D centre in Stockholm experience rapid growth, we’re expanding our teams. On the hunt for delivery-focused team members energised by the potential to transform the mining industry from exploration to sustainability by applying our breakthrough technology platform.

A growing force in the digital transformation of the mining value chain globally, Orexplore is developing a suite of world-first technologies, generating 3D digital models of drill cores that deliver unprecedented insights for our clients globally.

What we're looking for.

Game-changers and out-of-the-box thinkers with a fresh perspective, energised by moving fast, growing high-performance global teams building lasting client relationships, and delivering exceptional service by delivering and supporting a brand-new technology in the field.

Our GeoCoreX10 instrument and Orexplore Insight® software is the company’s first technology platform to create orebody knowledge, deliver real-time, in-field exploration guidance, and improve operations and environmental outcomes for our customers.

The Candidate.

The Operations Manager is responsible for all operations globally for the group.

We are seeking a candidate with a proven track record of safely operating in the field who is passionate about people, performance, continuous improvement and transforming industries with our brand-new technology, a first of its kind in the field.

Safety is paramount at Orexplore, and as we grow globally and deploy our units in harsh, remote locations, it is essential that our safety culture, systems, processes, learning and attitudes are exceptional at all times. Therefore, a significant critical capability of this role is providing this safety leadership and instilling a high-performance safety culture globally across all our teams.


As our growth accelerates, we seek a strong operations manager who can take the reins of the operations globally to guide the successful deployment of our technology platform, improving and enhancing the growth and performance of the field-based teams across a diverse set of global locations for our customers.

The operations manager will also work closely with the Company’s Geoscience; Engineering; Data Science (Perth), and R&D teams (Stockholm) to ensure the highest levels of operational performance; reliability; productivity and safety are achieved on each project. 

A vital element of this role is also the ability to effectively communicate the value of technology to a diverse set of customer stakeholders to drive the platform’s adoption permanently in the field. This involves developing a deep understanding of the customer’s operations and an ability to discover the opportunities and problems they face daily while articulating and demonstrating the power of our platform to add value to their businesses and operations. 

This role will be the primary contact between clients and Orexplore for field-based activities associated with our Sea Container deployments.
