About Headway

Do something that matters. Scale your impact. Do it by impacting people you know AND tackling a global issue. We all know someone impacted by mental health condition; 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 access 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 are solving the mental health crisis, with the backing of the nation’s preeminent VCs (backers of Facebook, Linkedin, Slack, Uber, Oscar) and 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).

Become part of our mission. Join a group of people making mental health affordable and drive both immediate and long term impact. We're growing rapidly--we’re already the biggest therapy group in NYC, facilitating thousands of appointments--and in this role you’ll help accelerate that growth by defining and executing our therapist acquisition strategy.

The Role

As an early member of our sales team, reporting to one of Headway’s cofounders, you’ll be instrumental in developing and executing the playbook that allows us to grow our community of therapists, strengthen our business and further increase access to quality care for those who need it.

As a salesperson in a highly entrepreneurial environment, you’ll identify promising growth channels, generate leads, close deals and design a repeatable sales process that will support our mission of solving America’s mental health crisis. You’re our front door for therapists, so in addition to representing our business and brand, you’ll work cross-functionally to translate the insights you glean from your sales process into products and processes that help us execute on our mission.

Ideal candidate

-3+ years experience in consultative sales or consumer sales or recruiting (bonus points if you’ve done this in a startup environment, or sold to small businesses before)
-You make people smile. You are warm and friendly and know how to connect with people whether in person, over the phone, or over email.
-You have a deep work ethic and the desire to always get better. You like to be challenged and push yourself to get better every day and in every pitch.
-You have a thick skin. Comfort thinking on your feet, trying new approaches, and bouncing back when things don’t go your way.
-You take a scientific approach to growth, experimenting with a variety of tactics to discover how to generate leads and sell. And you have the analytical ability to identify which channels warrant more investment, and which we should avoid.
-You want to learn and grow. You view this role as an opportunity to learn from a bright and talented team and are excited to take on more responsibility at Headway over time.
-You believe in our mission. You want to work for Headway because you believe in the importance of affordable and accessible mental health care, for everyone.


Competitive salary, competitive equity, and robust benefits.
As a mental health health company, we value mental health! While we work hard for our mission, we don’t valorize working hard just for the sake of it. If you need an afternoon off or a WFH day, we support you and won’t question your conviction in our mission.
