About The Stealth Venture

Our stealth psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy medical group is on a mission to improve appropriate access to psychedelic-assisted therapy, bring strong clinical rigor through evidence-based approaches, and be the provider of choice for insurers and referring providers.

One third of American adults experience symptoms of anxiety and depression, which has only been exacerbated by the pandemic. A significant portion of these individuals struggle to see tangible results or outcomes from current prescription medications or talk-therapy. Psychedelics (i.e., Ketamine, MDMA, LSD, Psilocybin, etc.) have emerged as new forms of treatment to combat and alleviate treatment-resistant depression. This is a massive area of need, with treatment-resistant depression alone impacting 5M patients in the United States.

As our Head of Product, you will play a critical role in shaping product strategy, defining the roadmap, launching our first MVP, and reimagining the industry standard for the safe delivery of ketamine-assisted psychotherapy. The ideal candidate is someone with deep expertise in creating and scaling product organizations in the healthcare space, with deep knowledge of digital health to build patient-centric and provider-empathetic experiences.
