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.

We are a young and highly moti­va­ted star­tup team based in Berlin-Prenz­lauer Berg. As a part of our team, you would help us deve­lop and main­tain our next gene­ra­tion micro-ser­vice powe­red backend with Elixir and Ruby on Rails.
