Job overview

Omada is hiring a Senior Behavior Scientist to support the Health Coaching and Product teams.  This role is responsible for subject matter expertise in the science of behavior change and clinical best practices in lifestyle management.  You will shape the approach and practice of applying behavior change theory and techniques to our intensive behavioral counseling platform.
