About Unmind

Unmind is a workplace mental health platform. We empower employees to live more fulfilling and balanced lives by changing the way organisations around the world think about mental health. We believe that everyone has the right to a healthy mind – because we all have mental health, all of the time – and we’re striving to create a world where mental health is universally understood, nurtured, and celebrated.

In the past 12 months, Unmind has grown from a 30 person team to a fast-growing, 120 person global organisation with offices in London, Sydney, and New York. With the recent announcement of our Series B funding, we're looking forward to our next stage of growth which will enable us to deliver on our mission to improve the mental wellbeing of ten million people in organisations around the world.

We have ambitious plans to change the perception of mental health and we still need help in achieving them– which is why we’re looking for an exceptional individual to join as a Senior Full Stack Engineer.

Responsibilities

We’re scaling quickly, which means that the focus and responsibilities of any position can be quite dynamic – but here’s how we initially see your skills and passion coming to life at Unmind

Build - You will be responsible for solving complex problems, working closely with your cross-functional team, initially focusing on features that guide our users through their personal wellbeing journey.

Own - You will be involved from ideation to deployment and beyond as we build key features of our platform and product. You will take the architectural lead for some of the features or services your team owns, and guide your team in finding the right balance between technical excellence and delivery of value that brings you closer to your team's North Star.

Mentor - As a Senior Engineer within the team you will be responsible for mentoring more junior members of the team as they navigate their careers with Unmind. You will also drive quality and engineering best-practice within the team.

Skills and Experience

We firmly believe that no one is the finished article and that there should be learning in every role you do. However, some experience of the following is important for the role.

  • Experience of working at a Senior level as a Full-Stack Engineer. We don’t mind if you’ve previously leaned more towards the front or backend but it would be useful if you have an appreciation for both.
  • Experience with most of our Tech Stack (Node.js, React, Typescript, GraphQL, ES2015, AWS, Cloud-based application development)
  • Experience of working in an agile environment with good engineering standards (testing, continuous improvement, frequent deployment)
  • Passionate about mental health, tech-for-good, and generally improving people’s lives
