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 200,000+ 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.

About The Role

Headway is looking for an experienced Senior CX manager to lead a team of CX Team Leads and help scale customer services infrastructure as we rapidly expand our geographic reach. Our CX team is the tip of the spear that will make affordable healthcare a reality for millions, and you will be there to shape this experience. This is a unique opportunity in an industry that needs to be rebuilt. 

You’ll come in and manage a team responsible for providing exceptional care and service to mental healthcare providers and clients. Your team of CX team leads works with individuals contributors in the organization to help them support the team of CX Associates & Specialists. 

You will have a unique opportunity to build new systems, processes, and infrastructure for a fast-growing team. You will play a pivotal role in putting in place and consistently improve the foundation that allows us to deliver on persistently high NPS and CSAT. Beyond that, you will work closely with your fellow CX manager and the Head of CX to develop and pursue Headway’s vision for the best-in-class provider and client experience. 

You’d be a great fit if...

  • You have 3+ years of experience managing CX managers/ team leads and enjoy investing in ongoing learning and coaching 
  • You have CX support experience, empathy for clients and can bring best practices for client problem-solving to our team 
  • You are energized by ambiguous and fast-paced tech environments
  • You’re an analytical and creative problem solver: you dig into challenges, quantify them, and create “handmade” solutions
  • You have a knack for process improvement, project management, and are data-driven
  • You have passion for Headway’s mission
  • You thrive in ambiguity, and seek out opportunities to dive into unfamiliar challenges, drive towards outcomes, and shape strategy.

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. If reasonable accommodation is needed to participate in the job application or interview process, to perform essential job functions, and/or to receive other benefits and privileges of employment, please contact talent@findheadway.com.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
