Alpha Health – Engineering /
Full-time
Alpha Health will soon become Koa Health. After 4 years of intense research and product development on breakthrough digital mental health solutions; Alpha Health is graduating from Telefonica’s moonshot factory. 

Koa Health
Koa Health is a digital mental health company bringing high quality mental healthcare to people around the world.  Targeting a significant market opportunity, Koa is building solutions that are comprehensive (from prevention to cure), effective (with a uniquely strong evidence-base), ethical (e.g., managing personal data), and personal (rather than one-size-fits-all). 

Koa launched its first commercial product in the US and UK in February (Evermind) and launches Mindset in the US later this year. In parallel, Koa is developing a pipeline of clinical products, including Perspectives and Foresight. 

At Koa, we have built a fantastic team of designers, engineers, researchers, and commercial leads.  We also partner with the very best clinicians and academics in the US, the UK, and Europe. 

About the Role
We are looking for talented engineers in Barcelona (flexible to remote work from other cities in Spain), that can contribute technically and also from a business perspective. You will join our engineering team (around 25 engineers) in one of our product pods (4-6 engineers) and work on mobile apps and backend services, from definition to deployment, collaborating with QA and DevOps.

From a development perspective, we have implemented a career ladder so our Team Leads can help you take control and enable your personal progression. Also we're always looking to use the latest technologies and have a way of working that allows us to help mentor team members technically too.

We don’t only care about your experience, it doesn’t matter if you are a junior or a senior; we want people who take pride in their work, are eager to learn and share their knowledge. If you are curious about us but think you don’t match our tech stack then feel free to apply - we are looking for attitude rather than knowledge and we would still like to meet you.

The purpose of Koa Health is develop products that are truly effective in delivering high quality, digital mental health care; we want to work with like-minded people who can help us achieve our goal to create the most widely used products in this space.
