We are a mindfulness-based mental health company looking for experienced software engineers to join our remote team. We create evidence-based digital therapeutics that help our users change their behaviors for good by overcoming habits and addictions like anxiety, emotional eating, and smoking.

We develop and maintain several hybrid mobile apps and various web applications and tools. We value code written for humans and developers’ happiness.

  • Integrating services with 3rd party APIs (i.e. Stripe, Intercom, Drip)
  • Investigating customer issues when needed
  • Continuously Improving the CI&CD processes


  • Are you self-organized?
  • Do you enjoy writing clean and optimized code that performs well and is easy to debug?
  • Do you listen to user feedback and pay attention to the details that make great user experiences?
  • Are you interested in mindfulness, meditation, behavior change, and/or neuroscience?
  • Do you want to work someplace that prioritizes developer happiness, learning and flow in the service of reducing suffering in the world – no matter where you’re working from?

    • (Postgres)SQL proficiency
    • Strong understanding of the HTTP protocol and security implications
    • Good Knowledge of modern web technologies (HTML/SCSS/JS)

    • DevOps and/or UNIX/Linux experience is a plus
    • Excellent verbal and written communication skills


We are a mixed international team with most developers based in Europe. The work environment is relaxed and built around asynchronous communication. We communicate using microsoft teams and slack and we trying to keep the number of meetings to the necessary minimum. While the position is fully remote, we prefer people based in Europe or the Eastern US region for timezone overlapping.

We all know how fast stacks change these days, so we appreciate developers who are comfortable switching between technologies and willing to learn when a new skill is required. We also believe that your experience is a valuable asset and you will be part of the decision-making process to improve the quality of our programs and our architecture.

Hiring Process

  • Initial call with our Director of Engineering
  • Take-home assignment (You will work on it remotely at your own pace and if you have some code you could share with us we can skip this step)
  • Short meeting with our team to get to know each other.
