Customer Success Manager

San Francisco, CA
Business Development
At Karuna Health, our mission is to give every patient a guide in the healthcare system.

Karuna's software allows patients to stay in touch with their care teams using the same channels they use with friends and family: from Whatsapp and text messaging to voice calls and video. To handle the increased volume and quality of interactions, our automation tools help care teams prioritize, measure their performance, and cut through back office work so that they can focus on doing what they do best: building authentic relationships with the patients who need them most.

Our focus today is on care management, a niche part of the healthcare ecosystem dedicated to serving the most vulnerable and sickest members of our communities. In the future, we will enable healthcare organizations to build deeper, more impactful relationships with every patient, while also helping them expand the scope and accessibility of their services for all.

As the first customer success hire at Karuna, you will lead the charge to make sure our customers are satisfied and retained as we move from a handful of early clients to reaching and empowering 100,000s of patients around the country.
