Apply for this job

SimplePractice is the fastest growing SAAS company in the behavioral health practice management space. Our offices are just 5 blocks from the beautiful beaches of Santa Monica. We’re looking for unique individuals who will help us take our product and services to to the next level. We’re looking for a friendly, eager-to-learn Technical Product Specialist to join our Customer Success team.

Minimum Qualifications

This is a full-time position. There is some flexibility with working hours over time, but we request you to be present in the office in Santa Monica at 9am for the first 3 months.
