Head of Product


 

Mission and Overview

My Wellbeing is building the platform for personalized emotional health so the millions of Millennials yearning for stronger mental health will know where to go, what to read, and who to talk to in order to feel better. Beginning with compatible lead generation (through which we have already served thousands of seekers and hundreds of providers), My Wellbeing looks forward to expanding into data and analytics, community building, media hosting and sharing, practice management, and more.

As our Head of Product you will be responsible for setting the strategic direction of the product and driving all product initiatives from inception to execution.

You will own all direct responsibilities for our current solution and will be working closely with the executive team and a team of engineers to build roadmaps & run experiments that inform My Wellbeing’s future. Your performance in this role will be measured through user insights and behavior, products that you launch, the way you lead and inspire a team of engineers, and the way you collaborate with non-technical teammates. You must be equal parts self-starter and team player--capable and interested in owning the product roadmap and implementing efficiently while taking into close consideration the perspectives of other team members and the My Wellbeing community of therapists and therapy-seekers.

You will be My Wellbeing’s first in-house, full-time product hire. You will work with a team of engineers to implement our roadmap. We are seeking a passionate, talented product manager with a background in software engineering who is interested in taking on an impactful leadership role at a young and quickly growing startup in the mental health and wellness industry.
