NYC /Fellowship / Full-Time
Thrive Global is the leading behavior change SaaS company helping individuals and companies drive high performance from a foundation of well-being, ultimately ending the stress and burnout epidemic. We’re leading the global conversation around well-being and performance and developing products and programs that help people go from knowing what to do to actually doing it.
This is a 6-month fellowship with our Executive Office team.

We’re looking to cultivate next-generation leaders who are eager to learn and evolve with our brand in real time. Whenever possible, we aim to create long-term opportunities for our fellows at Thrive and extend the fellowship into a full-time opportunity. The Thrive Global team is headquartered in SoHo, NYC, but is remote until we launch our hybrid work model post Labor Day 2021.

Thrive Global’s mission is to end the stress and burnout epidemic by offering companies and individuals sustainable, science-based solutions to enhance well-being, performance, and purpose, and create a healthier relationship with technology. Recent science has shown that the pervasive belief that burnout is the price we must pay for success is a delusion. We know, instead, that when we prioritize our well-being, our decision-making, creativity, and productivity improve dramatically. Thrive Global is committed to accelerating the culture shift that allows people to reclaim their lives and move from merely surviving to thriving.
