About Daybreak

Daybreak Health (http://www.daybreakhealth.com/) is creating a world where every young person can access—and benefit from—mental health support. We provide evidence-based virtual therapy with licensed clinicians to kids ages 6-19. We do this primarily by partnering with school districts to provide free, accessible mental health care to all kids.

We’re a YC-backed company that raised its Seed from Maven Ventures and Series A from Lightspeed Ventures (a Top 10 VC). We’ve had tremendous success in the past 2 years and are growing quickly and efficiently. We’re hiring for critical roles to continue our acceleration and national expansion.

As a team, we are all aligned with our North Star mission. We collaborate and execute incredibly well by doing more with less (we value efficiency and output over hours worked!) and we communicate clearly using writing (vs. unnecessary meetings). We are fully remote with team members across the country and will stay that way. We value mental health: the willingness to be vulnerable is a requirement to join Daybreak. We have regular mental health days (at least once per quarter!). Last but not least, we value fun and hold regular virtual and in-person activities.
