Professional Traits Necessary for All Ketosource
Team Members
We are looking for people who are passionate about the potential of ketone metabolism to make a difference - whether it’s via the ketogenic diet, fasting or other ketone tools.
Importantly we are looking for people who also:
● Are “ALL-IN” –​working at Ketosource requires a high ownership mentality, and is a place where you own the goals and the outcomes.
● Want to Operate in a True Meritocracy –​where the best ideas, decisions and results win out, and where responsibilities are given consistent with people’s abilities and strengths (versus based on other considerations such as tenure).
● Are Able to Work with “Transparency” –​In other words, a place where you don’t filter what you say. Information, plans, ideas are shared openly with everyone within the company so that people learn from each other and build on each others insights to find the best answers and solutions for the team (Ketosource).
● Want to Work with a High Degree of Integrity –​You are driven to contribute to true results for clients and customers, to finding the truth of any problem or solution (​no matter if it’s not what we would’ve liked)​and to contribute to the team’s evolution.
● Realize that Humility and Open-Mindedness are Required​​–​Ketosource is a place where people’s egos have to be set aside. e.g., we are all responsible for coming up with the best answers and it’s not about “being right” because no single person knows everything and everyone makes mistakes.
● Have Relentlessly High Standards –​and are constantly looking for ways to make things better, get better answers, because you know that this will enable the Ketosource team to make a bigger and more worthwhile difference in the world.
● Realize that it is Difficult to Operate in this Type of Environment​​–​but who ultimately value the personal growth, meaningful work and meaningful relationships that come from operating in this way.
● Are Data-Driven and Analytical Thinkers​​–​Ketosource is a fact-driven company which often looks to data collection and analysis to find the best answers to the challenges it faces - whether it being helping clients achieve their goals, or any other challenge.
The Bottom Line:
● Are you someone who enjoys creating innovative ways to reach ambitious goals? who is open to and energized by receiving honest feedback? and who likes asking and being asked “why?” - then we should talk.
● We don’t just look for people who can do a particular job. We look for people we want to share our lives with.
