Job description

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 the vast majority do not get the care they need. The primary reason is cost: the majority of therapists do not accept insurance, meaning paying for therapy is prohibitively expensive for prospective patients. That’s why Headway is building the first 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. 

We launched in April of 2019 and are now powering 175,000+ appointments per month. To scale our vision, we’ve raised over $100 million in funding from a16z, Thrive, Accel, and Google Ventures.

Join us, and make an impact.

As Headway’s Head of Product, you will oversee the entire product, design, and research functions -  driving strategy, planning, and execution for all products across our 3 sided marketplace (patient, provider, and payer). As a member of the Executive Team, you’ll play a key role in building Headway as you significantly scale our product, design, and research teams with world-class talent.

You will:

  • Manage, hire, and establish a team of product, design, and research leaders to build Headway’s industry-changing set of products
  • Collaborate cross functionally with every organization across the company, leading with influence and ensuring product strategy is woven into each of their departments
  • Translate product strategy into an organization that aligns people and charters for maximal impact across parallel product efforts

You will love this role if:

  • You are motivated by our mission. We are working to solve the biggest problems in mental health care today (access and affordability)
  • You have 5+ years of people management experience- coaching, growing, and retaining top talent as well as developing a culture of inclusion, high trust and engagement
  • You are well versed and have seen success in building processes from scratch and repeatedly taking products from 0 to 1, all the while keeping customer insights, data, and your intuition top of mind
  • You are comfortable leading the management and execution of multiple parallel product lines with a relentless focus on creating a problem-solving culture and measuring impact
  • You are an excellent communicator- setting the bar for top-notch collaboration across EPD and partner functions
  • Strategy is your strong suit. You have an impressive track record of partnering directly with executive team members to ensure that product strategy is a key component to each of their business units
  • You are excited to work in a continuously evolving environment, where you’ll have the opportunity to contribute to various areas of the business, all the while creating immense impact

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, age, national origin, religion, family status, disability, military status, and experience.

Headway employees work remotely across the US, with the option to work from our NYC HQ. 

Headway is committed to the full inclusion of all qualified individuals. As part of this commitment, Headway will ensure that persons with disabilities are provided with reasonable accommodations.
