Wellist is seeking a hands-on client success leader to manage our employer partnerships and lead new client implementations. WellistCARES programs provide personalized, culturally-relevant navigation to improve access to all existing benefits and provide access to additional resources in their local communities. The Director of Employer Client Success will partner directly with new clients and their HR leadership to drive program engagement, ROI, and stakeholder satisfaction. 

We are seeking a scrappy, high-horsepower leader who loves partnering up and down HR organizations to drive program results. They are committed to iterative, user-centered workflow design, continuous improvement and learning. They get into the details and solve problems with a “can-do” attitude.  As a mission-driven leader, they inspire both our clients and our colleagues.

The ideal candidate for the Director of Employer Client Success has experience designing effective workflows, partnering with HR leaders, and scaling an early-stage company. 

 You should apply if:

  • You enjoy rolling up your sleeves, owning hands-on work to “get it done”; you prefer to act as an individual contributor vs. a team leader 
  • You prefer front-line client success work (e.g. program design, stakeholder management) vs. building an organization and managing operations
  • You thrive at both managing client relationships and enjoy partnering cross-functionally with internal product, marketing, and support teams to meet all service-level agreements 
  • You are excited to iterate on Wellist’s client services operating model to ensure success as we grow

Initial success metrics will include:

  • Employee program engagement (via both our digital platform and call center)
  • Client satisfaction, retention, and growth
  • Program ROI


  • 12+ years of experience in client services, relationship management or program management roles
  • 2+ years at an early-stage, venture-backed startup
  • Demonstrated success building strong partnerships with HR leadership across diverse industries and driving organizational change within large employers (5,000+ employees) 
  • Expertise in employee engagement and benefits transformation 
  • Master’s degree in Business Administration or a related field preferred
  • Ability to travel 20 to 30%, potentially increasing over time as the business grows

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.
