Job Description

The majority of people with depression aren’t getting the care they need. Fewer than half seek care and a small fraction of those who do seek care receive treatment in line with best practices.

Brightside ( is a better approach to depression care, combining a consumer experience with evidence-based approaches, artificial intelligence, and a team of experienced providers (Psychiatrists and PMHNPs) to deliver personalized treatment, right from your phone. We’re redefining depression care for the telemedicine age and are on a mission to be the largest and best provider of depression care in the US.

We’re using innovative, evidence-based approaches to expand access and improve outcomes, including:

  • Telemedicine: Direct-to-consumer access via telemedicine, including asynchronous case review, video consultation, and e-prescribing, lowers the barriers to accessing high quality and affordable care.
  • Measurement-Based Care (MBC): In line with best practice, we measure symptoms, adherence, and side effects weekly through the active treatment phase and automatically trigger treatment reviews if patients are not improving. We are redefining the provider: patient relationship, replacing encounter-based care with remote and proactive oversight enabled by technology.
  • Machine learning-powered Clinical Decision Support: Contrary to conventional practice, data can help match patients to medications for better outcomes. Using machine learning and real-time data from patient monitoring, we are building a highly effective clinical decision support for antidepressant prescribing.

We’re seeking-forward thinking and experienced PMHNPs who understand the magnitude of the need and want to be part of the solution. Working with Brightside means the ability to practice with clinical autonomy with Psychiatrist support and receive competitive compensation while working flexible hours from anywhere. You’ll use the latest tools, including custom-built practice management, EMR, and clinical decision support, all truly designed to be easy to use.

Brightside offers the opportunity to shape the future of depression care and have a major impact in a high need area.
