Product Manager

  • Product & Engineering
  • New York, NY, United States


The client’s mission is to end the stress and burnout epidemic by offering companies and individuals sustainable, science-based solutions to enhance well-being, performance, and purpose, and create a healthier relationship with technology. Recent science has shown that the pervasive belief that burnout is the price we must pay for success is a delusion. We know, instead, that when we prioritize our well-being, our decision-making, creativity, and productivity improve dramatically. They are committed to accelerating the culture shift that allows people to reclaim their lives and move from merely surviving to thriving.


The client engages individuals in behavior changes that positively and measurably impact their well-being and performance. We focus upstream before stress and burnout lead to symptoms, and create sustainable behavior change by leveraging our compelling content and IP, and developing and deploying innovative tools to engage users and help them go from knowing what to do to actually doing it.
Our product vision is to build a comprehensive Behavior Change Platform to individual and enterprise customers, consisting of two main areas.
1) a mobile application that identifies pain points through an onboarding assessment and continually monitors stress and well-being through automated tracking and routine check-ins. Employees receive personalized behavior change recommendations (Pathways and Microsteps) and relevant Thrive Journal content
2) a measurement tool providing a quantitative view of individual and company performance 3) a data and analytics layer with APIs connecting HR systems and third party apps/devices (e.g. wearables).
We are in the early stages of executing against the product vision and this role will have a big opportunity to shape the future of the company.
