Big Health (CA) – Why Work For Us?

Ingenuity is our secret weapon

Hard problems are best solved with applied creativity. When a door is locked shut, we hunt for a window. When humans don’t scale, we create virtual therapists. Even in the tightest of spots, with just our wits, lateral thinking, and a blowtorch, there’s nothing we can’t solve. Although in practice we rarely need the blowtorch.

You gotta have soul

There’s a certain energy to people who work here. A positivity, an infectious curiosity, an emotional generosity. We celebrate our differences, care for our users and look after each other. It’s what the French would probably call joie de vivre, and so would we if we could spell it. After all, the whole reason for good health is to enjoy life.

Greatness through humility

We hire brilliant people who ask stupid questions, give their best ideas away and celebrate others before themselves. And brilliant people know they can always improve. We admit when we’re wrong, take responsibility by default and embrace failure as a step towards greatness. We’re constructively honest with our peers – not to lay blame but to ask how we can all do better. That’s why there’s no I in Bg Health (ahem).

The tenacity to move mountains

It takes unbelievable grit, resilience and plain old hard work to achieve the apparently impossible. And we’re willing to do the hard yards to transform healthcare. Even when it feels like walking over hot coals. Or pulling teeth. Or any other painful metaphor you can dream up. Because nothing worth achieving is easy. Now, where do you want that mountain?

Our purpose is to help millions back to good mental health

This is what drives us. It’s why we're creating automated behavioral programs scalable enough to help everyone in need - what we call "digital medicine”. It’s why we align our incentives with the interests of our users. It’s why we collect gold-standard clinical evidence and treat ethics as a duty, not a chore.

    I have been working at Big Health (CA) full-time (More than a year)


    Working at Big Health is a pleasure. It's all good work, good people, and good science. We have an incredibly smart, creative, and fun team designing and distributing evidence-based animated mental health apps. In addition to the talented in house team, we all elevate our game through close access to top-tier advisors -- world-leading clinical experts from Oxford, UCLA, etc and top creative advisors from Pixar, Radiolab, etc.


    Effectively addressing the mental health difficulties of billions around the world is a challenging problem. We've had a lot of success, but want to be able to move faster in finding solutions for all the different populations including those less likely to engage in behavior change programs.

    Sales Director Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Big Health (CA) (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.


    Started with phone calls with the hiring manager, learned more about the company and asked about my background. From there, I met with the hiring manager onsite and we did a roleplay. I wasn't given much in terms of what to prepare for, so it required research and knowledge from our initial call. He was primarily looking for how I approached calls. I also presented a 90 day plan.
    After that, I was invited onsite again to meet with the team. I met with members cross-functionally and had a social team lunch to get to know everyone.
    The final step was an offer!
