Tech Lead (InsideOut)

London, United Kingdom
Accelerator – Engineering
Full-time
About Us:

InsideOut is changing the way mental healthcare is provided in the workplace. We provide on demand mental health tools, matching you to personalised content and experts.

This is an acute pain point that InsideOut’s founder Laura felt first hand while working as a management consultant. She knew that people, including herself, were in need of advice and support but due to the stigma around mental health did not know who to talk to or where to access help.

InsideOut was created so that everyone has access to personalised content and health experts in a trusted environment. We are not just a platform or an app, we are a workplace wellness movement that is changing the way we view mental health so that everyone can be a better version of themselves and thrive in life and in the workplace. 

Mission: Everyone has mental health. We are here to help you look after yours. 

Vision: A world where, the stigma around mental health has been overcome through honest conversation, with accessible tools. 

We’re looking for a Tech Lead to own the build and strategy of our product.
