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.

You will: 

  • Push code, own architectural decisions for an engineering team deploying daily across consumer-facing, therapist-facing, and internal-facing platforms; back-end web services. Our back-end is Python.
  • Work with our Head of Engineering to build an engineering team as it doubles in size over the next year.
  • Work alongside the co-founders to help set the development roadmap and bring to market novel technology solutions to America’s mental health epidemic.
  • Grow and learn by doing. You’ll contribute to any part of the business that interests you. Interested in product management? Great -- work with us to conduct user research and build out our roadmap. Want to learn about user acquisition? Awesome -- help implement our SEO strategy.
  • Change the trajectory of a startup striving to redefine access to mental health in America.

You will love this role if: 

  • You have 3+ years of professional experience as a software engineer
  • You want to work on both the back-end and front-end of our codebase
  • 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
  • You have a 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.
