<p>As General Manager / Senior Operations Manager, you&rsquo;ll be working closely with the founder to drive forward, plan and execute the company strategy. You will be picking up and leading on the operational duties within the business while the founder focuses on product and content.</p> <p>You&rsquo;ll be supporting the team in delivering according to that strategy while keeping them highly motivated and organised, making sure department projects are delivered to a timeline.</p> <p>With our platform launch next year you&rsquo;ll be playing a key role in scaling the business, finding new talent &amp; managing relationships with our partners and investors. Leading in an early stage team means your decisions will help shape the trajectory and success of the company.</p> <p>If you&rsquo;re ready to transition from a job to a calling, we want to hear from you!</p> <p><strong>COMPANY Description</strong></p> <p>Our mission is to bring out the best in people! We are modernizing the self help and personal development industry with game changing technology that&rsquo;s scientifically proven to improve users lives.</p> <p>At Psychological Technologies, we get to work with bestselling authors including Daniel Goleman, Adam Grant, Dan Pink, Johann Hari, Julia Samuel and many others to transform their teachings into interactive, award-winning app based courses that create real change. There&rsquo;s never been more interest in mental health and self development with companies like Calm, Headspace &amp; Masterclass all being valued at $1B+ as they position themselves to meet this need.</p> <p>We also strongly believe in the importance of the people you surround yourself with! Our founder previously helped set up Headspace (he was the first employee) and our advisors come from Masterclass, Audible and Headspace. We are now looking to grow our team with talented, mission-driven people like you!</p> <p><strong>The Product</strong></p> <p>Everyone wants to improve. Whether you want to become a better leader, better sleeper or reduce your anxiety, we all want to improve our lives. And where do you usually turn to? Books, audiobooks, or the internet. But if you&#39;re honest, have the self-development books or videos you&#39;ve consumed led to the changes you&#39;d hoped for?</p> <p>If not, don&#39;t worry, you&#39;re not alone. But if you think about it, if you read a book on how to ride a bike, would you magically expect to be able to ride a bike? The self-development market fails to deliver, not because the advice isn&#39;t good, but because information isn&#39;t enough, if it was we&#39;d all be multi-millionaires with perfect relationships and six-pack abs! Change requires practice. We need help putting advice into action. So that&#39;s what we do. We help you put the advice of the world&#39;s leading self-development authors into action in your life, to create real change.</p> <p>It&#39;s like a more interactive version of Masterclass, with content from the world&#39;s leading self-development authors. We take proven content, with proven demand and deliver it in a more effective way.
