About Us

At Thesis, we believe that everyone has the capacity to unlock their brain’s full potential. In a world where technology is outpacing human evolution, it’s become more difficult to keep pace with the constant stimuli of the world we live in. The result? People are struggling to be present in every part of their lives. That’s why we’re building an ecosystem that helps people reclaim their focus, starting with nootropic blends to support every kind of brain.

Thesis helps people find the right nootropic blends for their brain chemistry—made from the highest quality, high potency and bioavailable blends at clinically studied dosages—to achieve their goals by boosting brain function and enhancing mental clarity. Thesis has already attracted significant attention, with over $14M raised in venture capital, endorsements from notable healthcare experts and athletes, and is advised by leading neuroscientists from Yale, Penn, and MIT. 

As we continue to grow, we’re looking for exceptional people to join us in revolutionizing cognitive enhancement. If you’re ready to contribute to a pioneering movement that promises personal growth and industry leadership, we invite you to explore a career with us at Thesis.

About The Role:

Thesis is seeking a Strategy & Operations Manager to join our growing team and help drive business expansion. In this role, you will support company priorities that unlock topline growth and enable efficient, scalable operations. Your scope will include managing cross-functional initiatives from ideation to execution, delivering data insights, and supporting the Strategy & Operations Director, Chief Business Officer and other senior leaders on special projects.

This role presents an opportunity to work with seasoned startup leaders and gain hands-on experience running and growing a startup – from day-to-day activities to strategic planning. In this role, no two days will be the same and you’ll get broad experience working with product & engineering, marketing, and operations, amongst other teams.

The ideal candidate has management consulting, corporate strategy, or investment banking experience, plus experience working at a startup. However, the most important qualification is that you are excited to work in a hands-on, agile manner to make a tangible business impact and support our mission.

How You’ll Make an Impact:

  • Build business cases to size the impact and complexity of potential product and customer experience opportunities – then prioritize initiatives accordingly
  • Develop project plans, define goals and success measures, and oversee project work and rollouts
  • Partner with cross-functional teams to ensure timely progress towards launch milestones, and proactively troubleshoot and remove blockers
  • Manage performance and customer analytics across a variety of data sources, and share data insights across the organization
  • Identify and act on opportunities to develop processes and improve structure within the organization
  • Develop a knowledge base on industry trends, customer retention strategies and innovation across the consumer space that will be utilized across the organization
  • Support quarterly and annual business planning
  • Plan agendas and content for weekly and monthly business performance reviews

We’re Excited About Your:

  • 2-5 years of management consulting, corporate strategy or investment banking experience and / or experience at an early (seed to Series B) stage startup
  • Strong data analysis, visualization, and presentation skills – experience with data visualization tools, such as Looker, is a plus
  • Razor-sharp attention to detail, excellent quality work product, and pride of ownership
  • Experience modeling business cases, projections, and other financial analyses in Microsoft Excel, and building executive-level presentations in Microsoft PowerPoint
  • Ability to execute on multiple complex projects simultaneously
  • Results-driven mentality and strong bias for action
  • Comfort with ambiguity, priority-shifting, and failing fast to get to the right answer quickly
  • Flexibility to shift rapidly between strategic thinking to hands-on execution
  • Ability to distill and communicate complex information to a variety of audiences, including executive leaders
  • Passion for nootropics and Thesis’s mission
