Working Stu­dent / Intern: Ruby on Rails and/​or Elixir Deve­lop­ment


7Mind was foun­ded in 2014 to bring medi­ta­tion and mind­ful­ness into our modern world. With 800.000 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 well­being as they do to their phy­si­cal health. In coope­ra­tion with sea­so­ned medi­ta­tion trai­ners as well as health-care experts we strive to deve­lop high-qua­lity trai­nings that pro­vide the easiest access pos­si­ble to medi­ta­tion and mind­ful­ness.
