Behavioral Scientist

Modern Health

Modern Health is a mental well-being platform that helps innovative companies and people thrive. We empower companies to help all of their employees be the best version of themselves, and believe in meeting people wherever they are in their mental health journey.

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution for mental well-being, which makes it hard for companies to offer benefits that cater to each employee's unique needs. That’s why we prioritized creating a platform of mental health resources for — well, everyone! Whether employees are looking for guided meditations, virtual one-on-one support from certified coaches, or in-person therapy, we make it easy for people to access the care that’s right for them when they need it.

We’re building a diverse team of driven, creative, and passionate individuals to join us in our mission to improve the way people live. We are a female-founded company, backed by investors like Kleiner Perkins, Founders Fund, John Doerr, and Y Combinator, and partner with companies like Pixar, Gusto and Okta that are taking a proactive approach to mental health care for their employees. 

We see diversity, inclusion, and belonging as key components of mental well-being in the workplace, and that starts with how we build our own team. If you’re excited about this role, we encourage you to apply, even if you don’t meet 100% of the qualifications listed.
