Who are we?

Tempest (formerly known as Hip Sobriety) is a female-founded, first-of-its-kind digital recovery platform that provides alcohol abuse treatment for the 46 million Americans who don’t identify as addicted. We are a modern alternative to current recovery options like AA, focused on putting people at the center of their own recovery through an approach that’s empathetic, empowering, and desirable. 

Tempest serves a customer currently ignored by the wellness, healthcare and recovery industries; deliver them to sobriety; and keep them engaged in an evolutionary pursuit at a fraction of the cost of traditional treatment modalities. We position sobriety less as a singular goal and more as a holistic, aspirational lifestyle, and communicate this through our meticulously designed brand, through the thoughtfulness and joy built into our products, and through our commitment to culture-shifting via The Temper, our media presence. 

Our current core product--an 8-week course that combines ed tech with an online support community--has been wildly successful. To date, over 4000 participants have been through the beta course with a Net Promoter Score of ~80.  About half of our sobriety school participants convert into annual members and receive access to monthly Tempest content, a supportive online community, and the opportunity to attend in real life events. 

Our coaches are responsible for providing individualized support to students enrolled in our Sobriety School.  Our coaching program focuses on brief, goal-setting oriented sessions to help students make small, sustainable changes that support them on their sobriety journey. Coaches serve as accountability partners and sounding boards to help work students work through barriers to their success. The coaching program is important to ensuring the success of the individual.  As a coach, you embody our values of empathy and support, and serve as a guide for current and future students. 

Coaches are recruited from among former students and those who have experience in other similar recovery modalities. Coaches may or may not have previous coaching experience but should identify as having been in active recovery for 6 months or longer. We provide training in our coaching approach to all new team members. 

Coaches are part-time, remote employees. Coaches meet with students via Zoom (video conferencing) and will need to have access to a computer capable of video conferencing for these meetings. Coaches are expected to take a minimum of 15 students per week which translates to approximately 8 hours per week. Evening and weekend availability is a plus, but schedules are flexible.

Role responsibilities

    • Individual Support - Coaches work closely with a number of students in the Tempest program to set intentions, define goals, and create accountability for them over the course of a month. Coaches must be available to work with a minimum of 15 students each week.
    • Team participation - Coaches are expected to join weekly rounding sessions to collectively discuss best practices and to participate in on-going training.
    • Administration and Outreach - While coaches do not provide administrative support, as part of your role, you will help manage scheduling and communication with your students. You will also provide regular updates on student attendance, and identify any potential student safety issues.

What we value and why you should join.

We’re a group of passionate and committed individuals determined not only to create a modern, feminist, inclusive, recovery modality but also to entirely upend the way our culture views alcohol—we are the anti-Rose All Day. We have a scrappy, get it done upstart ethos. We believe in showing up no matter what, honesty at all costs, persistence, straight-talking, and risk-taking. We’re not looking culture fits, we’re looking for individuals looking to build an entirely new culture. You should join if you want to make a difference in the world, and see this as the obvious way for you to do just that.
