Backend Developer (m/w/d)
7Mind was founded in 2014 to bring meditation and mindfulness into our modern world. With almost 1,300,000 downloads to date, 7Mind has already become Germany’s most popular online meditation training (available for iOS, Android or via web app) and is still growing.
Our goal is to help people pay as much attention to their mental well-being as they do to their physical health. In cooperation with seasoned meditation teachers, as well as healthcare experts, we strive to develop high quality training that provide the easiest access possible to meditation and mindfulness.
