Additional info

Headway is building a new mental healthcare system that everyone can access.

1 in 4 people in the US have a treatable mental health condition, but most don't get care. The biggest barrier is cost. It's hard to find a therapist that accepts your insurance.

So Headway is building a software-enabled network of therapists who accept health insurance, making it easy for therapists to grow their practices, and possible for patients to find quality care they can afford.

Headway powers over 150,000 appointments per month.

This is a unique opportunity to join a company that is both extremely mission focused, and growing fast with a strong business. There's also a strong emphasis on transparency within the company, and of course, mental health too.

The team is values-oriented, and seeks product minded engineers. The product is a multi-sided marketplace, so a customer focus is important.

If you join a company, my general advice is to join a company on a breakout trajectory.
