Title: Executive Director
Location: Denver, CO (Remote)
Reports to: Director and Board President
Compensation: $24,000
Direct reports: #2
Type: 1099 or W2 Position Summary
In Unlimited Sciences growth as an organization, they are now entering a new chapter of building out systems and teams to handle the increased interest in this cause. Their co-founders are moving to the Board and a key hire for this next phase is a dedicated PART-TIME Executive Director, who will deliver critical results through the highest-impact engagements with our team and potential donor base, as well as build the systems, processes, and the team to support this work.

This role is meant for an inspiring leader who has been highly successful in engaging and closing through authentic one-on-one conversations, and who has expertise in evaluating and implementing efficient programs to meet the community's needs. This leader will have a unique background combination of healthcare research, brand development, and fundraising. This person is a lover of data with an extreme desire to build community.--

Assets and cool projects you'd be adopting:

  • Existing study in second year of recruitment with Johns Hopkins University
  • Developing study with major sports league and prominent university
  • Over 20 Influencers assembled ready to advance the US mission with over 3 mil reach
  • Deep bench of volunteers including co-founders with proven track record of success in previous careers
  • Psychedelic Diaries (moving video content)
  • Unlimited Voices (video podcast of some of the most influential game changers in the space)
    Key aspects of the ideal candidate include:

    1. A personal story that connects with Unlimited Sciences mission - whether from their own experience, or someone close to them, this person has seen the life-changing benefits of psychedelic therapies, or knows the impact of chronic mental health disorders on individuals and their families. This person channels their experience with a strong sense of optimism that big change is possible, and feels a personal calling to have an even greater impact in this phase of their career.
    2. Is successful in organizational leadership. This is someone who enjoys telling a great story, listening and engaging with authenticity, being bold in making decisions, transparency in communication, and persisting to get results (and modeling and coaching that for others). You must have a generosity that scares yourself and will
    balance caring about the internal team including the individual on the team while putting the individuals we serve first. In particular, the right candidate has a track record of increasing revenue in a growing organization, by employing the highest-impact approaches while leading the team to greater successes to serve the world. 3. A natural builder - this person has gravitated toward roles that didn't exist before, coming in to add structure and direction to their function, always leaving the organization in a place of stability and sustainability because he or she can balance both vision and process. This person has a start-up and growth mentality, creates things with minimal resources, and truly enjoys getting their hands dirty while figuring out the critical next steps with their eye always on the long term vision and success of the organization and its team.

    4. A strategic thinker and quick decision-maker - rather than being pulled into the weeds, he or she excels at assessing needs and gaps (especially related to systems and processes), identifying the most effective solutions and priorities, and facilitating the critical steps to move the team forward. This person always comes to the table with a thoughtful recommendation and the reasoning behind it and isn't attached to the outcome. The one thing you can count on in this industry is change and transition. This person thrives and appreciates the challenge of this dynamic environment.

    5. The highest degree of integrity - not only because this role engages with donors to responsibly steward their investments in our impact, but also because we are connected to an emerging and often misunderstood industry, and as an organization, we have a responsibility to do what is right, so that more individuals and the community may benefit. This is a person who has experience with similarly high expectations, personally takes responsibility for their actions, and cleans up their mistakes with grace.
