We have partnered with a brand new startup which have just secured $4m of seed funding for a new Mental Wellbeing app. This is a unique opportunity to have a huge impact on a potentially very important product which could help millions of people. 

They are currently a team of 3 who are searching for a person to head up everything Frontend Mobile.

Role Description / Requirements

Product will be mobile first, likely built using React Native with some custom tailoring then for each of the two major operating systems. This is a very design centric product in terms of UI/UX, so we need a mobile front-end engineer who is both very experienced and creative in her/his approach. This person should not only be well versed in the latest state of mobile front end development, but be someone who can push the boundaries even further on what’s possible.

For the initial team, we will be pairing this person with our senior back-end lead as well as a couple full-stack engineers as well. So we need this individual to be fairly self-sufficient and to role up her/his sleeves in being both an individual contributor and a strategic leader in the early phase. We do anticipate building out this team further post launch, so this person can move into more of an engineering lead role managing a team of ICs, but early on, we need everyone involved writing code.

This person should also be comfortable working very early stage. This means working with lots of unknowns and playing a critical role in shaping the product strategy. We do not see this as an execution only role. This is someone who is part of our senior leadership team having a strong voice at the table. We are a very collaborative, transparent, and open team and we need someone who fits that culture.

We are very competitive on salary + equity, especially for an early stage company. We are flexible on location at this time. We want to find the best candidate possible and we will figure out how to make it work!
