Health Coach (Remote)
Hello 👋 I’m Grace, Chief Medical Officer at Miga.
I’m excited to open this position for a full-time health coach to join Miga and help us prevent the next million heart attacks and strokes.
Every 20 seconds someone has a heart attack or a stroke. Our mission at Miga is to overcome this unacceptable status quo. The health coach will be an important part of our team and integral to the number of lives we can serve (and save).
The ideal candidate has a background in nutrition, exercise science, or behavioral health, has experience with face-to-face coaching and/or motivational interviewing, feels at ease with technology, is excited to work in a fast changing and scaling organization, and brings creativity and an ownership mentality to program design and management. You will play an integral role in motivating patients around habits and lifestyle change, as well as help to manage our remote patient monitoring (RPM) program.
Who is Miga?
Miga is a virtual cardiometabolic clinic.
We prevent and manage obesity, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and diabetes, using medications and intensive lifestyle interventions.
Our clinical care is delivered over video visits and async chat by physicians, Advanced Practice Providers (APPs), registered dietitians, and health coaches.
Care is augmented by a character-driven, gamified app, connected devices, and our own tech platform that enables scalable, efficient, and high-quality clinical services.

What’s the bottom line?
Early-stage digital health company that has raised a $12 million seed round.
Searching for full-time health coaches with a background in nutrition, exercise science, or behavioral health with a passion for supporting patients in achieving their health goals as part of a multidisciplinary team in an innovative and rapidly evolving care model.
Remote work and can be located anywhere in the United States.
Salary range = $60,000 - $75,000 per year.
What is my mission?
Provide guidance, accountability, and motivational interviewing to patients on lifestyle (nutrition, physical activity, stress, sleep, and tobacco use), habits, and health goals through video visits, and document interactions to share with the rest of a multidisciplinary team.
What will I do?
Complete 30-hours of synchronous video visits with Miga patients per week.
Prepare for visits by reading chart notes from the rest of a patient’s multidisciplinary team (including a provider [physician/NP/PA] and registered dietitian) so that other team members’ recommendations can be reinforced during visits.
During visits, coach patients on lifestyle, habits, and health goals across nutrition, physical activity, stress, sleep, tobacco use, and medication adherence.
Retain over 80% of patients that start health coaching with you in the health coaching program.
Clearly and concisely document video visits within 24 hours in a health coaching note template so that the rest of the multidisciplinary team understands the content of the coaching visits.
Incorporate coaching around remote patient monitoring (home weight and blood pressure readings) into patient visits.
Escalate too high or too low blood pressure readings to clinicians.
Encourage patients to monitor their weight and/or blood pressure daily.
Communicate with patients asynchronously using our provider app.
