Headway’s mission is to create access to affordable, quality mental healthcare across the United States.

We all know someone who has struggled with mental health—1 in 4 people have a treatable mental health condition—but the overwhelming majority don’t get the care they need. The primary reason is cost. Eighty percent of therapists don’t accept insurance, meaning paying for therapy is usually very, very expensive.

Headway is solving this problem by building a managed marketplace that brings together patients and therapists, and takes care of all the messy insurance stuff behind the scenes. After launching in April of 2019, we are already facilitating thousands of appointments each month, and have the backing of the nation’s preeminent VCs (backers of: Facebook, LinkedIn, Slack, Uber, Oscar), as well as the nation’s most innovative healthcare entrepreneurs (founders of One Medical, Flatiron, and Clover, plus the founders of Seamless and Giphy).

Join our team and our mission, and do something that matters.

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.
