Description

About Greenspace Mental Health

Greenspace (www.grnspace.com) is transforming mental health systems through the use of data, collaboration and transparency; enabling healthcare providers to help their patients get better and stay better. Mental illness has passed HIV/Aids, malaria and diabetes as the leading cause of disability in the world. While there is no cure, psychotherapy is the most cost and clinically effective form of treatment. Greenspace has developed solutions that draw on technology and clinical research to impact patient outcomes within this traditional psychotherapy model.

We are an early stage company based in Toronto and Kelowna. Since launching in 2016, the platform is already being used by thousands of therapists and patients and growing rapidly across Canada and the US. Having secured two rounds of financing, Greenspace is backed by a group of industry leading advisors, including Mary Deacon (the Chair of Bell Let’s Talk), Dr. Vicky Stergiopoulos (Chief Psychiatrist at CAMH) and Dr. Ryan Van Wert (CMO of Vynca and a Clinical Instructor of medicine at Stanford University).

Overview – The Role

The candidate will work directly with the CTO and the rest of the dev team and have an opportunity to lead a number of key product development initiatives. We are an early stage company, which means that you will get a ton of responsibility and have an opportunity to play a pivotal role in the development and growth of the product.

We are passionate about improving the quality of mental health care and improving the lives of millions of people. We believe in a collaborative work environment where everyone's view carries equal weight. Good ideas are good ideas and it doesn't matter whether they come from the CEO or the newest employee.
