Behavioral Tech, LLC is recruiting a part time Client Services Specialist (32 hours/week) to join the Client Services Team, providing support internally to sales staff and externally to our customers.   


Behavioral Tech is a mission-based organization that trains therapists around the world in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) - an evidence-based behavioral health therapy model developed as a treatment for individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), and particularly those with chronically suicidal behavior. Our customers are clinicians that work across a spectrum of settings from traditional healthcare systems and community health centers to inpatient hospitals and prisons.  For more background, you can watch this series of videos: What Is DBT?  In short, practicing DBT is life changing for both clients and the therapists, who make a long-term commitment to working in DBT teams with other therapists. The DBT global community is a dedicated, passionate bunch, and the Behavioral Tech (BTECH) staff is no different.  

Begun by the founder of DBT, our history spans two decades, but in many ways we are like a startup, a small, hard-working group with low turnover that genuinely cares about each other. By adapting and changing, Behavioral Tech survived and thrived during the pandemic, and we plan to keep moving on delivering new trainings in new ways. We are excited to streamline our processes with the latest technology and grow into our next phase.  This role will evolve as our processes evolve. The successful candidate will join a thriving, dedicated team.   


The Client Services Specialist is a new role that combines assisting potential and existing customers with also supporting our sales team in their work, thereby laying the groundwork for a move into sales if this is of interest (but not required). The Client Services Specialist will become well-versed in customer types and needs, and the types of DBT trainings we provide.

  • Represent the Customer Service perspective in training event debriefs

Although our physical address is in Seattle, not surprisingly, we are moving into a mostly remote work environment, opening the door to working with amazing people in any location. The Client Support Specialist is a part time position at 32 hours per week.  

Work hours are flexible other than a general overlap with staff for required meetings, and a required availability for the first few hours of new trainings (3-5x/month) to assist participants who need help in using our online Learning Management System. Note: Depending on where you live, this might mean sometimes starting the day earlier than usual as some trainings begin on East Coast time.

  • You are open to change as the organization changes. 
  • If you live in a different time zone, you are able to work mainly in Pacific Standard Time for scheduled meetings and collaboration with teammates, but are very flexible overall.
