Prince Harry’s new favorite startup is actively hiring MBA graduates. The Prince has just joined mental health and coaching startup BetterUp, valued at $1.7 billion, as its chief impact officer.
BetterUp is a Silicon Valley rising star that this year secured unicorn status alongside $175 million in series D funding. As chief impact officer, Harry’s role is to drive advocacy and awareness for mental wellness, guiding the company’s social mission and expanding its global presence.
Harry’s interest in BetterUp is nothing new. The firm helped Harry in his own mission for mental health support and coaching.
In a statement, the Prince said: ‘I was matched with my coach who, quite frankly, is truly awesome and has always given me sound advice and a fresh perspective, which is so valuable’.
MBA jobs at BetterUp
It’s not just ex-royalty joining the team at BetterUp. The firm is hiring across the United States, with roles available in Texas, Minnesota, New York, Arizona, California, and Washington, as well as in Canada .
BetterUp is looking for experienced and tenacious candidates to apply for roles in marketing, analysis, operations, product and more and some positions require an ‘MBA or equivalent degree from a premier institute’.
Roles of particular interest to MBAs include director of value management and VP of network operations.
Many of the roles BetterUp is advertising offer a competitive salary, 13 days paid holiday, medical, dental and vision insurance, volunteer days and learning and development days.
Salaries for these types of roles tend to be between $130,000 and $250,000 per annum, placing BetterUp among some of the best-paying MBA employers, including the top consulting firms.
BetterUp has earned itself an excellent rating for employee satisfaction on Glassdoor and 85% of employees would recommend the company to a friend. Employees share how diverse, flexible and inclusive the firm is, and its mission is understood by employees at all levels.
BetterUp’s co-founder Eduardo Medina is an MBA of sorts too. After meeting fellow co-founder and CEO Alexi Robichaux at the University of Southern California while studying a bachelor’s in business, he went on to pursue an MBA from Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley.
Eduardo hasn’t actually completed his MBA yet—he left Haas to launch BetterUp in 2013. Now, he’s in the company of (future) kings.
