Real is building a more equitable and fair infrastructure to research, define, and prove mental health patterns in the US. Separate from building a product that helps members, we care deeply about building a stronger understanding of mental health in America as a whole — tracking, proving, and sharing with the world, what mental health looks like across the diverse population of the US using all we’re learning internally, and more. The ideal candidate falls under the definition of a PhD dropout — you’re passionate about furthering our understanding of mental health in America, you excel at discovering patterns amidst a sea of quantitative and qualitative data, you can easily see the issues in healthcare research today, and you probably didn’t love the narrow constraints and political funding nature of academia.
The Head of Health Research will contribute to the company’s growth by expanding their role as a thought leader in mental health. They’re looking for someone who has the technical skillset to drive findings amidst large datasets, alongside empathy for and an understanding of people today to drive new, relatable learnings — you may be an Anthropologist, you may be a Statistician, you may be a really empathetic person who rocks at math. They’re eager to bring on a self-starter with a passion for mental health who will thrive in a fast-paced startup environment. You’ll report to the CEO, and also work closely the CMO, the full Therapy Team, and Data & Analytics.
