Pre-Series A

1 in 4 Americans have a treatable mental health condition, but the majority of them don't get help because of access and affordability issues (80% of therapists don’t directly accept insurance). We're addressing this problem by building a marketplace that deals with the messiness of insurance behind the scenes, so patients can get affordable in-person therapy covered by insurance.

We’re freshly armed with outside funding from the world's best VCs (backers of Facebook, Dropbox, Slack, Oscar, and more) and angel investment support from the nation’s most innovative digital healthcare entrepreneurs (founders of One Medical, Flatiron Health, Clover Health—plus the founders of Seamless and Giphy because who doesn't love delivery sushi and GIFs).

Having launched in NYC in April, we're already facilitating thousands of therapy appointments for people who otherwise couldn't afford access to mental healthcare.

We're looking for great people to help us help people.

Engineering at Headway
Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team operates on project based cycles. All engineers are involved throughout the planning process including working with team leads to determine product requirements and speccing out projects. Projects often involve a combination of solo-work and pairing. We use PRs for our code reviews and are usually pushing to production multiple times a day.

Technical Challenges

We have a small but scrappy engineering team of 3 - the majority of your work will involve building products from the ground up, rather than making incremental improvements to things built by others.

Projects you might work on
  • Talk to therapists to figure out what they want in an ideal practice management software. And then build it.

  • Architect and implement a CI/CD pipeline that will let us scale from 2 engineers to 20+ engineers.
