Headway’s mission is a big one – to build a new mental health care system everyone can access. We’ve built technology that helps people find great therapists with the first software-enabled national network of providers accepting insurance. 

1 in 4 people in the US have a treatable mental health condition, but the majority of providers don’t accept insurance, making therapy too expensive for most people. Headway is building a new mental healthcare system that everyone can access by making it easy for therapists to take insurance and scale their practice. 

Headway was founded in 2019 – since then, we’ve grown into a diverse, national network of over 25,000 mental healthcare providers across all 50 states who run their practice on our software. We’re a Series C company with over $225m in funding from a16z (Andreessen Horowitz), Accel, GV (formerly Google Ventures), Spark Capital, Thrive Capital, and Health Care Service Corporation.

We want your time here to be the most meaningful experience of your career. Join us, and help change mental healthcare for the better.

As a Principal, Payer Partnerships, you will own the strategy and execution of C-level partnerships with leading health plans across the United States. In this role, you will unlock Headway’s expansion into new geographies, reimagine how mental healthcare networks are built, measured, and curated at scale, and bring affordable mental healthcare to hundreds of thousands of Americans.

  • You have a deep understanding of payer business models and economics.

  • You are motivated by the opportunity to face off against one of our generation’s defining problems: access to mental healthcare.
