Reimagining Mental Health
Legion Health is looking to use technology to solve one of the hardest problems in health care—the massive shortage of mental health professionals in the United States (estimated at a 240,000-clinician deficit by 2025). We believe that, by supporting psychiatric practitioners' independence, everyone in the ecosystem wins. Practitioners win because they're able to achieve financial independence, flexibility, and clinical autonomy, and patients win because they're able to access a high-quality, available, and affordable practitioner.
Our startup has a very strong emphasis on quality—this includes hiring only the best clinicians, deploying an outcomes-based measurement approach, and building a best-in-class standardized clinician training program.
Early-stage venture progress: • Backed by Y Combinator, the most prestigious tech accelerator in the world (Group partners: Michael Seibel, Tim Brady, and Diana Hu) • Rapidly scaling our mental health network and building software to solve the hardest problems in this space • Raised a venture capital financing round from some amazing venture capital firms and angel investors • Revenues in excess of >$1M
A position is open for the Business Operations Internship. The Business Operations Intern will report directly to the Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer (Yash Patel).
Criteria for selection: • Quick work pace and very strong work ethic • A willingness to jump in wherever needed and an interest in solving real business problems • Business intuition and operational excellence (i.e., business, finance, sales, or startup experience is a plus, but creativity, people skills, and work ethic are most important) • Executive communication style and professionalism (i.e., the ability to correspond with C-suite leaders and health care professionals)
General requirements: • Must be available to work 45+ hours per week during the summer • Must be able to start ASAP and work until September 2023 (and into the fall if you're awesome) • Must be able to work remotely • Rising freshmen ('27), rising sophomores ('26), and MBA students who are looking to gain experience in entrepreneurship, technology, finance, business, and health care are especially encouraged to apply.
What's in it for you? • Monthly stipend • High-growth, early-stage startup experience + ownership of projects critical to the company (no BS work) • Credibility of having worked at a fast-paced Y Combinator/venture-backed company • Rare resume opportunity and guaranteed recommendation for future jobs (past interns now work at BCG, Netflix, Jane Street, etc.) • If you're really fantastic, we'll probably try to hire you full-time
