Full-time, San Francisco, CA

about us

Kip is a technology startup in the mental health space. Our mission is to build a clinic that bridges the gap between what human beings need to effectively heal, and what they’re getting from the mental health industry today. You might assume that we’re building a powerful, yet user-friendly technology platform that allows you to communicate with clients and monitor their response to therapy. However, we think that you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that we don’t see technology as the complete solution. In fact, our technology exists to support the strong, therapeutic alliances that our clinicians are empowered to build with their clients and the thoughtful interventions that our clinicians use to help their clients feel better.  

our philosophy

At Kip, we believe that providing a better experience for clients starts with building a better workplace for clinicians – a clinic where:

  • Therapists see clients based on goodness-of-fit, not by random assignment, or through the financial pressures of private practice
  • Therapists are free to individualize treatment to address the unique needs of each client
  • Therapists are given the tools and technology necessary to properly diagnose, treat and monitor the progress of their clients
  • Therapists are free to spend their valuable time healing people, not marketing themselves, scheduling sessions, billing clients and drowning in paperwork
  • Therapists are valued, respected and supported as they strive to deliver the best possible care to their clients

our model

To turn our philosophy into action, we are developing a clinical model that puts people first.

  • Kip attracts the best therapists by offering competitive salaries, benefits and equity – because we are only as good as our people
  • Kip retains the best therapists by providing a work environment that combines the autonomy of private practice with the security and community of a clinical model  
  • Kip maximizes client progress by allowing therapists to accept clients based on goodness-of-fit and treat each client based on their needs

our technology

To deliver the best outcomes for our clients in the shortest period of time, we’ve built a technology that supports (not replaces) the therapeutic process.Through Kip’s secure and HIPPA compliant platform, therapists can:

  • Message with clients between sessions
  • Set notification reminders for clients to complete homework assignments, practice mindfulness exercises, write in their mood journal and much more
  • Aggregate and analyze data about how their clients are doing
  • Share insights with their clients based on their personal data, like a thought pattern that might be worth exploring in session, or a positive trend in a key metric that may indicate progress toward a client’s goal
