Headway is building a new mental healthcare system that everyone can access. We make it easy for people to find quality in-network mental health care by removing historic barriers faced by mental health providers, payers, and patients.

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. This is where we got our start – Headway has built 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 400,000+ appointments per month. To scale our vision, we’ve raised over $100 million in funding from a16z, Thrive, Accel, and Google Ventures.

About The Role:

Join Headway and be on the frontlines of our work to go deep with health plans. The first of its kind, the Payer Marketing Strategy Associate role will be relationship-obsessed with our current and future health plan partners. They will build and execute on outstanding in-person and virtual convenings, drafting insight-driven case studies and white papers, and equip the business development team with opportunities to deepen relationships with key stakeholders.

The right candidate is a “healthcare nerd” who is hungry to continue to understand mental health care strategy, and learn how health plans work and make decisions. Organizational excellence, an attention to detail, and the ability to proactively solve problems amidst ambiguity are key. This person is as much an air-traffic controller and seamstress with precision, as they are a creative health care wonk. A knack for excellent distillation of ideas into clearly written collateral, desire to tell the story of Headway to enterprise executives, and hunger to produce the best in-person events will make this person shine.

You will…

  • Develop a deep understanding of mental health care strategy, writing compelling white papers, case studies, and other collateral for a health plan exec audience
  • Lead on content strategy and operational execution for Headway’s Strategic Advisory Council
  • Collaborate cross-functionally to ensure business development and customer success colleagues have the necessary resources to pursue sales with health plans
  • Run operations and logistics for Headway-led summits, payer convenings, and company attendance and engagement at conferences
  • Take initiative to source and lock in creative, desirable elements to bring Headway-led events alive (e.g. location, venues, menus, experiences, transportation, and more)
  • Manage guest lists, attendance, and creation and distribution of invites
  • Build and manage budgets for conferences and Headway-led events
  • Support with Headway participation on panels and other external engagements

You’d be a great fit if...

  • You have 2+ years of professional experience working in healthcare (consulting a bonus!) and running high-profile campaigns
  • You have attention to detail and can manage complex processes with precision
  • You are able to coordinate large, disparate amounts of moving pieces and distill them into a clear, concise attack plan
  • You are a self-starter and highly operational, with strong project management skills
  • You are an exceptional written and verbal communicator (bonus if you’ve done this in a customer-facing environment!)
  • You thrive in fast paced, ambiguous environments, and love getting in at the ground-level to build 0 to 1
  • You are very eager improve access to mental health care at scale in the US
  • You’re gritty, results-oriented, and self-driven

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.
