What's In It for You:

  • 100% Remote Job. You get to pick your hours and work from home in your pajamas or anywhere in the world.
  • Huge Professional Growth. As my right hand (wo)man, so any promotions, salary increases or special projects will offered to you first. As we grow, your role will also grow.
  • Training Provided. so don't worry if you haven't done all of the things listed below. (Though you should know most of it…)
  • Full Autonomy. I'm here for guidance and direction, not handholding. I expect you to take the task as far as you can, then come back to me with where you're at, what your roadblocks are, and a few options you think you can proceed with.
  • No One Looking Over Your Shoulder. Think of this opportunity as more of a partnership than a manager-employee relationship. I don't actually want to manage you - we're all adults, you can manage yourself.
  • Start Up Experience. We're a small but mighty team trying to transform the world for the better. We're a purpose-driven agency that help heart-led companies grow. Come join us!


Hard Skills:

  • Technical: WordPress, Elementor, Various Email Platforms, Canva, Loom, Discord, Google Drive, Airtable, HTML & CSS would be helpful
  • Research: Use your detective-level investigation skills to find out everything you can about a topic and present that information in an easy-to-understand format
  • Writing: Document SOPs, light copy and content writing, draft emails
  • Design: Using your eye for design and understanding of the color wheel to fix up or create designs on Canva (or other software)
  • Project Management: Be the shepherd and move projects along according to time, budget and quality



Soft Skills:

  • Proactive Communication: Like any relationship, proactive, open communication is key. This means if you can't meet a deadline, tell me in advance. If you're roadblocked, tell me how I can help. Let's keep the feedback loop open!
  • Quality of Work vs Speed: Projects should be executed on quickly, but not if it compromises quality. Quality doesn't just mean double (or even triple!) checking your work to catch mistakes, it also means full completion of the task.
  • An Eye For Detail: Granularity, specificity, thoroughness in the work you produce.
  • Self-Starter, Self-Learner: If you haven't used Discord before, then turn to Google or YouTube and download it to familiarize yourself. It's always OK to do something you haven't done before, but always come at it with a curious, critical thinking, 'I'll figure it out' attitude.
  • Customer Service: You'll be in regular contact with clients, vendors and other team members, so infectious positivity is ideal!
  • BONUS if you're spiritually-minded and have interest/experience in plant medicine


HIRING PROCESS:

  1. Shoot over an application! Tell me about yourself, why you'd like to work with us and if you ever been to a plant medicine ceremony or psychedelics healing center!
  2. Quiz & Video. It's your turn to make a video now :)
  3. Trial Task. A small assignment to see you in action.
  4. Interview. Don't sweat it; I'm not going to grill you, it'll be more of a conversation.
  5. Welcome to the family!

That's it! Send in an application and let's get talking!
