About the Role
Channel Partnerships are a new and emerging growth segment for Lyra.

As a Channel Partnerships Manager, you are in a highly visible role where you own your accounts from implementation to fruition, creating and maintaining key relationships, driving revenue and opportunities and working cross-functionally to ensure the success of these relationships.

You will work collaboratively across Finance, Marketing, Sales, Sales Enablement, Product and other teams to implement and grow these channel partnerships. In this capacity, you will be the liaison between Lyra’s partners and go-to-market teams in order to execute on growth strategies, competitive differentiation, new market opportunities and will be a catalyst in moving Lyra to the next stage of growth.

You will perform analysis and dedicate time to deeply understand our partners’ businesses and goals, to identify opportunities to drive revenue growth and new ideas. You will think creatively with our sales, business development and marketing teams to develop and execute these programs with our partners. 


  • Work closely with the Director of Channel Partnerships and AVP of Channel Partners to maintain and nurture relationships. The success of these relationships will depend on your ability to evolve these relationships as the business needs evolve with them.

  • Passion for mental health
