 Integral Institute Careers

Integral Institute is the leading destination for people seeking the map, tools and community to cultivate an Integral lifestyle, and we are offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for talented business executives to help us manage our fast growth and dynamic Integral service offering.  Integral Institute is preparing to launch a major update to its product and service suite and technology platform in order to better serve its worldwide audience of Integral practitioners and is now accepting resumes from candidates in key executive positions.

As part of the world’s leading Integral service company and working in Boulder (i.e., Denver), Colorado, one of the nicest places in the United States, you’d be a member of a special group of talented people in an amazing 2nd tier culture working to provide world-class services and products that are highly relevant to our members’ lives.  Ideal candidates are people who are Integrally-informed, capable of operating regularly from 2nd tier perspectives, and have a significant track record of demonstrable achievement in relevant professional positions.  Because each of these positions has a significant influence on II strategy it is important that the right candidates be able to communicate clearly how Integral theory and applications have influenced their own lives.  Candidates also should be able to mentally balance the broad platform of services that Integral Institute represents with the focused discipline needed to best serve our members in each area.  As a small but growing non-profit, we especially welcome candidates who are at stages of their careers where assistance can be provided on an economically advantageous basis for an introductory period.  Nevertheless, if you believe you are the right candidate and you are passionate about the Integral lifestyle and its impact on everything from politics to spirituality, medicine to relationships, than we’d love to hear from you!  Please reply to
