3S Mission: [Three Ships’ mission is to enrich lives by building the world’s best digital content and products]. We operate in a variety of verticals - home, auto, health and wellness, fitness, technology, and sustainability - and are actively launching new businesses as well. Since our founding in 2009, we’ve been on a fast-paced growth trajectory, including more than 100% year-over-year growth.
Your mission: your role is to build a new P&L, anchored around a new digital product or service. You will develop a product strategy, build and iterate on a product, launch to market, and scale.

Why this role: This role is perfect for someone who wants to be an entrepreneur but is missing one or more of the key ingredients – the right idea, significant capital, or a winning team. Three Ships provides you with a platform to build an outstanding team, shape your culture, and build something that matters.

About our platform: Three Ships has a proven track record of building and scaling profitable digital-first businesses. We see a huge gap between the risk of launching a garage start-up and the boring routine of working in a large corporation to meet quarterly earnings targets. To address this gap, we designed Three Ships as a collection of independent companies whose management teams have literal and figurative ownership to chart the best course for their business. As a private company, we can focus on building long-term value for customers, employees, shareholders, and our communities without the distractions and drama that many large public or PE-owned businesses face.
