Who are we and why should you join us?

BetterHelp is on a mission to remove the traditional barriers to therapy and make mental health care more accessible to everyone. Founded in 2013, we are now the world’s largest online therapy service – providing affordable and convenient therapy in 210 countries and over 60 languages across the globe. Our network of over 30,000 licensed therapists has helped millions of people take ownership of their mental health and change their lives forever. And we’re not stopping there – as the unmet need for mental health services continues to grow, BetterHelp is committed to being part of the solution.

As a Clinical Operations Manager at BetterHelp, you’ll join a diverse team of licensed clinicians, engineers, product pros, creatives, marketers, and business leaders who share a passion for expanding access to therapy. And as a mental health company, we take employee mental health just as seriously as we do our mission. We seriously invest in our team’s well-being and professional development, because we know that business and individual growth go hand-in-hand.

At BetterHelp, you’ll carve your own path, make an immediate impact, and be challenged every day – with a supportive community behind you the whole way.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for a hard-working, passionate, fast-paced individual with experience providing direct clinical care to join our Clinical Operations Team. Our Clinical Operations teammates are the liaison between BetterHelp members, the therapists, and the technology platform; and they consistently help our company to improve efficacy and quality between the three.

You are a self-starter with a growth mindset that spans clinical quality, business development, and the rapid pace of change characteristic of a tech startup. With your experience and opinions from direct clinical care, you are confident in your abilities to apply the best of “what’s working today” in the mental healthcare system, while being a vocal proponent of what “red tape” should be eliminated or redesigned to better serve clients and their therapeutic progress.

This is a role that is primed for extreme individual career growth and development, combined with the opportunity to change how mental healthcare services are accessed both domestically and internationally.

What will you do?

  • You will provide support via email, phone, and chat on a daily basis to our rapidly growing counselor network, in order to ensure they are always well-equipped to provide high-quality clinical care to our members.
  • You will act as a point of escalation for complex customer and counselor questions to ensure quality Improvement, and you will organize cross-functional teams as needed to resolve any escalations.

  • You will monitor the clinical capabilities and relevant work experience of counselors applying to be part of the BetterHelp platform.
  • You will proactively conduct outreach and maintain productive communications with counselors to get feedback, improve satisfaction, and prevent churn.
  • You will learn how to articulate new product ideas and/or enhancements to existing product features for our Engineering Team, and you will work with them to get those ideas implemented.
  • You will stay up to date with the regulatory environment, with support from our Legal Team and our Provider Network Team, and you will clearly communicate changes to the organization to support compliance with mental health ethical and legal standards.
  • You will work closely with Creative Director and participate in public speaking events, media interviews, and appear on BetterHelp's social media channels.

What will you NOT do?

  • You will NOT worry about funding. We have startup DNA, but we're fully backed and funded by our parent company, Teladoc Health.
  • You will NOT be confined to your "job". We believe in nurturing employees’ interests and passions – even if some of them lie outside of your core responsibilities.
  • You will NOT be bogged down by office politics, egos, or bad attitudes. Only positive, pleasure-to-work-with people are allowed here!
  • You will NOT get burned out. We work hard, but we also believe in maintaining sustainable work/life balance. Seriously.
  • You will NOT have to wonder why you’re doing the work you’re doing. Our day-to-day operations translate into people getting the help they need.
