About Swell: 

Swell is on a mission to improve mental health for the military through our primary mental health care platform.

In January of 2023, we launched our mobile-based telehealth therapy application, intended to help military members and their families access evidence-based mental health therapy when they need it, without paying out of pocket. Our product combines traditional 1:1 video therapy sessions with a mobile application designed to enhance skill adoption outside of the session, and reduce the overall time-to-benefit in therapy. 

We’re a small startup created by a group of therapists, social workers, military spouses, and former service members. We’re passionate about improving access and outcomes for the military community and are looking for therapists (full or part time) to join our team. If you’re excited about our mission and eager to support this community, then we want to talk to you!

We’re building a distributed team located across several states and leveraging tools to make working remotely work for us. We have a wonderful supportive team that stays connected via slack and video calls. We’re looking for someone who can embrace the work-from-anywhere lifestyle while participating in a culture of collaboration and inclusivity across our team.
