Life at mpathic:


Prioritizing Work-Life Balance

As a remote-first company, we emphasize work-life balance. Twice-yearly in-person retreats, quarterly hackathons, flexible work location policies, other benefits such as 100% funded healthcare benefits, flexible-managed PTO, training and education funding, are all part of life at mpathic.

We respect the whole person, acknowledging that quality benefits are a fundamental part of an empathic society. Our dedicated Ombudsperson, DEIB Director, and People and Culture Ops Lead Head of People and Culture are here to make your time at mpathic safe, values-aligned, and designed to foster growth (we are an empathy company after all!).


Promoting Inclusion and Diversity
At mpathic, we welcome underrepresented individuals in tech and outside of tech. Maybe you've been overlooked, faced a glass ceiling, a paperwork barrier, couldn't code switch exactly right, had to up-manage others while doing all the work, don't want to have to deal with feeling tired or like an outsider anymore. We are a tech company run by a psychologist in a tech environment that has a history of systemic problems; we are approaching that history and re-imagining start-up life together, intentionally.


Our workplace values include equality, transparency, and inclusion. We take pride in managing systemic bias within the company. Our Board of Directors and VCs are all 100% women or non-binary, and our company includes more than 60% persons of color (BIPOC).

mpathic is an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristics protected by law. We believe in diversity and inclusion, and we welcome applicants from all backgrounds to join our team.


Salary is dependent on experience. Following our Equal Pay Commitment, we have salary banding and established vesting schedules for equity.

The first year of this position will emphasize stability as the cadence for repeating sales is established, and thus will reflect higher-base salary (e.g., 80% base 20% variable ) and will move to a different OTE split (e.g., 60/40 or 50/50 OTE) in 2025 or post-Series A when sales are consistent to ensure greater upside for the salesperson. This position receives commission on new business, not contract expansion or renewal.

We’re excited to meet you!
