Work with Third Wave

Open Positions

GENERAL MANAGER – JOB DESCRIPTION

Summary:

Since its inception in 2015, Third Wave has focused on providing trustworthy information about psychedelic substances within a brand aesthetic that appeals to mainstream culture.

Throughout this period, our founder, Paul F. Austin, has remained at the helm of the organization, helping to write Third Wave’s first few chapters on the way to becoming one of the premier brands in the space.

With hundreds-of-millions of dollars pouring into the psychedelic space, and several paths unfolding towards the cultural legitimization of psychedelics, the third wave of psychedelics has reached an interesting and timely crest.

In taking the next step to become a best-in-class discovery platform, we have three core strategic aims:

  1. Providing trustworthy education
  2. Connecting individuals with vetted providers
  3. Cultivating an engaged and supportive community

We believe these three elements – education, trusted providers, and community – are central to the cultural integration of psychedelics.

To help us write these next chapters, we’re hiring a General Manager to handle all day-to-day decision-making, oversee P+L responsibility, and in general kick-ass for this next evolution of Third Wave.

Whoever is chosen for this role will be asked to drive two core metrics –  traffic and revenue – through three strategic avenues:

  1. Content production
  2. Backlinks
  3. Number of vetted providers on our platform

If you desire to leave a lasting impact on the world by helping millions of people to heal and transform through responsible psychedelic use, then we would love to consider you for this position.

Your responsibilities:

  • Oversee day-to-day operations, managing the Digital Content team, making daily editorial decisions, and ensuring we stay on track to hit our key metrics
    • Note: As part of this role, you will have full P+L responsibility for the entirety of the business
  • Develop and execute strategy to carry out Third Wave’s mission of normalizing psychedelic use through education, vetted providers, and engaged community
  • Manage Head of Community to ensure we are consistently onboarding new providers into our directory and engaging our broader community
  • Coordinate PR and media efforts to generate backlinks for Third Wave’s platform
  • Coordinate resource allocation and project prioritization across teams and departments
  • Pursue standardization of approaches to streamline internal systems and simplify workflows
  • Oversee the hiring, onboarding, and offboarding processes for new contractors as needed.
  • Limited public speaking at events and/or to media
  • Bi-weekly check-ins with Paul Austin to ensure we remain on track for our growth goals

Ideal Candidate:

Five or more years of relevant experience. Relevant experience includes:

  • Experience at the intersection of operations, content strategy, and executive decision making
  • Senior level operating role at fast-growing start-up
  • Moving controversial issues from the fringe to the mainstream
  • Personal experience with psychedelics and other altered states of consciousness
  • Passion for holistic wellness, personal responsibility, and mother nature

What We Provide For You:

  • Competitive salary + vesting equity
  • Flexible office hours
  • Opportunity to lead one of the premier brands in the psychedelic space
  • Opportunity to directly shape company culture and the company’s core products
  • Opportunity to have a significant impact on how psychedelics become integrated into our global culture
