Earthley is Hiring Operations and Production Managers!

Earthley is looking for two new people to join our warehouse team.  An Operations Manager and a Production Manager, who will oversee different aspects of our facility at a high level. We’re seeking people who are as passionate about our mission – to change the way the world sees health care – as we are.  It’s a benefit if the people is already members of the natural-minded community and use and love our products!

Our Mission

Our mission is to change the way the world sees health care: and we mean it.  Allopathy is the dominant form of health care in this country currently and it’s broken.  Many people cannot afford the care that is available, do not receive the help they actually need through the system (many are told they’re “fine” when they are not), and do not know alternatives exist or how to access or use them.

It’s our goal to change all that.  We want natural health modalities to be as prevalent as allopathy is.  We want the public to be educated and confident in choosing to use herbs and other forms of natural health for most of their health needs.  We do this through education and providing clean, affordable products.

We are a very successful brand, growing at 100% for our first 5 years, followed by 75% in year 6 and 55% in year 7.  We are looking for someone who is excited by that success, wants to understand our ways, and help us continue to grow strongly.

Our Values

#1: We Believe in Medical Freedom

I believe in medical freedom – the right of all humans to make their own decisions about the care of their own bodies.  This includes accepting or rejecting any procedure, medication, modality, or test for themselves, and equal access to all health modalities (allopathic, naturopathic, herbal, chiropractic, and whatever else someone may benefit from or desire to use).

#2: We Only Succeed as a Team

I believe that every member of the company is important, and that we are all on the same team.  No one’s job is more or less important than anyone else’s, and we will all succeed if we work together cooperatively across all teams and departments.

#3: We Approach Situations Proactively

I believe in being proactive. It is my responsibility to take action when I see potential problems or needs, by raising attention to the situation and working with others to solve it.  I will lead by example, and help create solutions that work towards the long-term good of the company, the team, and our customers.

#4: We Value Innovation and Creativity

I believe it’s exciting to be part of a company that is growing rapidly and constantly innovating. I will never be satisfied with “because that’s how it’s done,” and will approach each new challenge with a positive attitude and enthusiasm. I will not be afraid to suggest or try new and interesting ideas, because ‘failure’ only happens when I don’t try at all.

#5: We Believe “Perfection” is Not Achievable 

I believe that perfection is not an achievable standard.  I will give grace to others when they make mistakes, and I will expect grace when I make them, too.  I will treat others the way I want to be treated.  I will also treat others the way they would like to be treated.

#6: We Believe Clear Communication is Key

I believe that communicating in a calm, clear, and respectful manner is key to our success as an organization.  If I have a concern, I will share it with the appropriate people and expect them to hear me.  I will not waste time on gossip or complaining; I will instead seek to solve the problem by encouraging sideways and down or, when needed, vent up.  I will also expect clear communication from others.
