Hinge Health is improving the lives of everyday people with chronic musculoskeletal health conditions by digitizing the delivery of care. As a healthcare co-pilot, we are ensuring health doesn’t get in the way of participant's goals and are laser focused on getting participant's the right care. We are achieving remarkable outcome improvements - helping people conquer chronic pain, avoid surgery, return to work, and get back to doing the things they love. To do this, we go beyond best practice care. We treat the whole person. We empower behavioral change. We make it easy.

You'll be joining a team of 100 employees entering a pivotal time in our lifecycle - we raised our Series B 6 months ago, are rapidly signing customers, and are in a period of hyper-growth as a company. As a still small but rapidly growing company, we're firm believers in letting you own your role and in continuous learning. To that end, we have a book club where we discuss topics in digital health, design thinking, entrepreneurship, sales, and more.

As we grow, we're looking to expand our Health Coaching team with industry-leading health coaches. We are looking for people who are fully committed to the mission of Hinge Health, and the lifestyle changes we inspire, excited about the possibilities of digital health, and who want to jump right in and have immediate impact. If you're the right fit for us, you'll wake up each morning inspired to do what it takes to get things done, and foster an environment for each of your 100+ participants to succeed.

  • A compassionate and empathetic people person - you're a great listener, you have an impeccable character, and you're always a pleasure to speak to.
  • Outstanding and professional communication skills - you'll be liaising via email, phone, and text with patients and your internal team.

  • You'll be on the front-line of our product - interacting with patients every day. That'll give you an incredible opportunity to see what's working and what isn't.

  • Commuter benefits
  • In office wellness initiatives + gym membership monthly stipend
  • Annual Professional Development Stipend
