Wavepaths delivers experience as medicine - we are transforming mental health care through life-changing experiences with music at scale.
Our generative music technology integrates psychedelic science, machine learning, music theory and experience design to facilitate experiences that improve mental health and well-being. We provide technology solutions to both care seekers and care providers.
We’re now looking for a full stack engineer to join our team. You will collaborate with our small team of designers, product managers and engineers to bring music curation for vulnerable clients to our therapists. Later in the year, we plan to expand this to consumer web and mobile apps and an API interface with to cloud-based generative music system.
Working with Wavepaths will offer you the freedom and responsibility to steer the technical direction of our platform with the rest of the engineering team and directly with the founders. Our team is mostly remote, with a home base in London, and we offer both options.
The right person for this role will be a highly internally motivated technical contributor, with strong experience shipping production level code with strong back end competency. It is important that you have an understanding of, and can manage, the end-to-end lifecycle of a development project, from local development and version control, through to both front end and back end development, server setups and management, as well as deployment and maintenance processes.
Being an integral part of a small startup, it is also important that you have the ability to prioritize and focus and communicate to both technical and non-technical audiences. Most of all, you’re interested in using your engineering capabilities to make a foundational contribution to our mission, realizing a new category of well-being products and services that help people reconnect with their innate capacities to heal.
You’ll be someone who is excited to work among a diverse, expert team leading the forefront of generative, adaptive audio-visual systems, and work with world-class therapists, engineers, researchers, artists and musicians.
