Unmind is a workplace mental health platform. We empower employees to live more fulfilling and balanced lives by changing the way organisations around the world think about mental health. We believe that everyone has the right to a healthy mind – because we all have mental health, all of the time – and we’re striving to create a world where mental health is universally understood, nurtured, and celebrated.
In the past 18 months, Unmind has grown from a 30 person team to a fast-growing, 120 person global organisation with offices in London, Sydney, and New York. With the recent announcement of our Series B funding, we’re looking forward to our next stage of growth which will enable us to deliver on our mission to improve the mental wellbeing of ten million people in organisations around the world.
We have ambitious plans to change the perception of mental health and we still need help in achieving them– which is why we’re looking for an exceptional individual to join as a Head of Product.

The Role – Head of Product – Wellbeing
The last 18 months have been a transformative period for the topic of mental health. We’ve all gone on our own wellbeing journeys – for many, it has been a time of grief, loneliness, and anxiety while for others, it has been an opportunity for reflection and growth. If there is a silver lining from the last year it’s that the appreciation, education, and investment in mental health and wellbeing has been accelerated.
We have spent the last 5 years creating the Unmind experience as a small UK startup. We are now ready to take that to the next level, making it best in class, a truly market-leading B2B experience with a B2C calibre. This is where you come in. We are looking for someone who understands the power of digital products in transforming people’s habits and who is energised to change the relationship people and organisations have, around the world, with the topic of mental health.
As the Head of Product for Wellbeing, you will be responsible for leading and growing a brand new Collective, along with our existing Collectives to ensure happy, healthy teams as we scale. We plan for Collective leadership to be shared between you and our current Head of Product as we grow, once she returns from Maternity leave in autumn 2022.
Here’s how you’ll contribute as Head of Product – Wellbeing:
- You’ll support the product teams to build high-quality products, driven by a deep understanding of our customers and how to bring impactful products to market.
- You’ll help develop the product vision, strategy and capabilities along with the VP of Product and other Leaders to deliver against the Unmind mission.
- You will support the product teams in setting clear measurable goals and relating them back to our customers priorities.
- You’ll promote a learning mindset and not only be constantly ensuring Unmind is at the forefront of the latest product development thinking, but also constantly learning about its users & customers through continuous discovery and delivery.
- You’ll promote an environment of diversity, transparency and trust, where your team can feel empowered to share ideas, be challenged, and fulfill their potential.
