About Headway

Managed marketplace for mental health professionals

Job Description

Headway is making quality mental healthcare accessible and affordable across the United States. 

1 in 4 people have a treatable mental health condition, but the vast majority do not get the care they need. This is primarily due to cost: 70% of therapists don’t accept insurance, meaning paying for therapy can be very expensive. That’s why Headway is building the first software-enabled national network of therapists who accept health insurance. We launched in April of 2019 and are already powering 25,000+ therapy appointments each month and continue to expand across the nation. 

To scale our vision, we’ve raised over $100 million in funding from a16z, Thrive, Accel, and Google Ventures. 

We believe a team's strength is in its people, and we cannot achieve this mission without a team that reflects the diversity of this problem - across race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and experience.

Join us, and make an impact.

As the first Engineering Manager at Headway, you will work closely with the Head of Engineering to help shape the future of the engineering organization. You’ll be instrumental in growing and leading our engineering team in collaboration with Headway’s Head of Engineering. This is an exciting opportunity for a passionate, mission-aligned engineering leader to make an immediate impact on our rapidly scaling engineering team.

You will:

  • Lead and manage a team of 6+ engineers
  • Help build out our engineering team as the headcount grows from 12 to 40+ over the next year
  • Ensure there is process and product alignment across your team
  • Develop and grow your team through weekly 1-1s, mentorship, and feedback
  • Work with and help develop aspiring engineering leaders within the engineering team
  • Contribute to the broader company strategy and product roadmap
  • Refine our Software Engineering hiring processes to meet the needs of our scaling organization

You will love this role if: 

  • You have 3-5+ years of experience as a Software Engineer
  • You have 3+ years of experience as an Engineering Manager 
  • You enjoy building things from the ground up
  • You have have a track record of working well across teams and functions
  • You have prior experience with Python and React, nice to have
  • BS, MS in Computer Science or related field, nice to have 
  • You have managed AWS infrastructure, nice to have

Headway is currently remote, and will be for the foreseeable future. However, once it is deemed safe to do so, we will be returning to our office in NYC.
