About Us

Red Cell Partners is an incubation firm building and investing in rapidly scalable technology-led companies that are bringing revolutionary advancements to market in three distinct practice areas: healthcare, cyber, and national security. United by a shared sense of duty and deep belief in the power of innovation, Red Cell is developing powerful tools and solutions to address our Nation’s most pressing problems.

We incubate and invest in early-stage technology-led companies in the healthcare, cyber and national security sectors.

We are a team of entrepreneurs, technologists, operators, and investors who are using big data to address our Nation’s largest problems. We believe the time for disruption is now. Heavily regulated, highly concentrated, and saddled with perverse incentives, our national security, cyber, and healthcare systems are fundamentally challenged. Without imminent action, both industries face catastrophic outcomes.


Red Cell is looking for an Office Manager to coordinate and execute administration duties and office procedures. The role will create and maintain a pleasant work environment, ensuring high levels of organizational effectiveness, communication, and safety.

Office Manager duties and responsibilities include making office supplies arrangements, conducting inventory management, greeting visitors, scheduling meetings and appointments, ensuring a clean and organized office environment, and providing general administrative support to our employees. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in office management and possess excellent communication and organizational skills. A successful Office Manager will also have experience with a variety of office software (email tools and spreadsheets) and be able to accurately handle administrative duties.

The Office manager should be able to ensure the smooth running of the office and help to improve company procedures and day-to-day operations.
