Health Coach - US
Job description

Do you have an unrelenting commitment and passion to help others achieve their physical, mental and emotional health goals?

If you answered yes to these questions, then serving as a Behavior Change Specialist Health Coach at LifeDojo may the perfect opportunity for you.

LifeDojo coaches are person-centered, resourceful, personable, and know that treating end-users as one would treat a friend, rather than a patient or client, is the key to helping people ambivalent about or intimidated by making a change in their life.

The role also includes serving as an effective concierge and referrer to more in-depth, clinical healthcare interventions as are needed to best serve each client.

LifeDojo coaches interact with users via phone coaching sessions and online chat depending on the preference of the client. LifeDojo Coaches are independent contractors who choose their own hours, methods, and approaches, and LifeDojo supports them through our platform.

For this role, LifeDojo is seeking coaches that are able to provide at least 5 hours per week to the role, and as many as 20 hours is welcome.

Company reviews
"Great vision, constantly changing aspects of the job"
Current EmployeeCoach
The hardest part of the job besides surviving 3 layoffs has been the constantly changing upper management, great ideas that don't get time to implement, seems like there's constantly changing priorities

"New leadership destroyed the company "
Former EmployeeNetwork Manager
Once new leadership came to ontrak, it put so much unnnecessary pressure on network management. They made so many changes to the department and put unqualified individuals in leadership positions and destroyed all of the progress

"inacessible management and co workers...hated it"
Former EmployeeSenior Help Desk Analyst
it was a horrible place to work, inacessible management, poor training, communication with the team , seriously wanting.this place was not worth going to

"Loved Ontrak but many negatives "
Former EmployeeCoach
I loved working at Ontrak. When I started I had a very good supervisor who cared about her staff. Many changes came about and 4 layoffs in 1 year was very stressful for staff and there was absolutely no support nor acknowledgment of the.needs of their employees. I’m sure I have PTSD from this company. Beware is all I have to say. You are tethered to the phone for 10 hours.
