Senior Software Engineer



Software Engineering
London, UK
Posted on Thursday, July 4, 2024

Unmind is the leading workplace wellbeing platform, on a mission to create mentally healthy workplaces where employees can flourish.

Grounded in science and built for enterprise, we drive people-first performance at some of the world’s biggest brands, including Uber, Major League Baseball, NHS, Disney, Standard Chartered, Mediacom and British Airways.

Our services support the whole organisation with data-driven performance insights for leaders, training for managers, wellbeing tools for all employees, as well as access to a global network of accredited mental health practitioners.

Our internal standards are as high as those of our clients. We’re an ambitious VC backed software business on the exhilarating 10-100M phase of our growth journey. It’s hard and rewarding work and we’re determined to be our very best case study along the way.

Unmind believe high performance will hinge on the powerful harmony between our relentless drive for results and creating an environment that elevates our people's wellbeing. This wouldn’t be possible without a dedication to our core values:

  • Be Human
  • Grow Your Mind
  • Innovate at Speed
  • Inspire & Impact

To learn more about what these values mean to us, please visit our careers page.

Our DEI commitment

We strive to build a workplace that celebrates our differences, where every Unminder feels included, equal, seen and heard. This is true regardless of your age, race, gender identity, religion or belief, marital or parental status, disability, neurodiversity, or sexual orientation.

We’re proud of our culture, but not smug. So if there’s anything we can do to make the hiring process more accessible, just let us know when you apply, or email

The Role – Senior Software Engineer

The world’s approach to therapy and coaching is changing - social norms are shifting and stigma is being eradicated. At Unmind, we’re building a world class digital therapy and coaching platform that enables employees to talk to someone, no matter how big or small a challenge they may be facing.

We are looking for an experienced Senior Software Engineer to join our Unmind Talk product team. You’ll be joining our Talk Employee product team, owning the employee-facing experience - helping users to understand the benefits of therapy and coaching, matching them with the perfect practitioner and getting the most out of their care.

In this role, you’ll get to:

  • Collaborate closely with the team’s Product Manager and Designer as a member of the product-trio to solve complex product challenges
  • Identify lean solutions and guide the team to find the right balance between technical excellence and shipping value to our users
  • Own existing (and future!) user facing features and the technical systems that power them - ensuring core journeys are covered by monitoring, automated alerting and tests at the appropriate level
  • Represent your team’s domain in the wider engineering forums - contributing to shaping our technical direction, surfacing and optimising benefits to the developer experience and achieving engineering’s strategic goals

Skills and Experience

We encourage you to remove education from your CV upon application as qualifications are not a driving factor in our decision making and we are committed to tackling educational inequality. We firmly believe that no one is the finished article and that there should be learning in every role you do. However, some experience in the following is important for this position:

  • Production experience working with React (in TypeScript), at a Senior Level
  • Experience working with backend technologies, ideally within our existing stack (Go, Node.Js, AWS) or a willingness to learn (we’ll provide training and support).
  • Product-minded with a passion for delivering impactful solutions for our users and clients. You wield tech debt strategically in order to help the team ship quickly and make pragmatic tradeoffs.
  • Comfortable operating in ambiguity (we’re a startup after-all) - remaining open-minded despite uncertainty and viewing change as an exciting opportunity to learn and grow.
  • Experience mentoring/coaching other Engineers


At Unmind we believe in having a whole person approach and we hope that our benefits enhance the lives of Unminders, helping them be happy, healthy and fulfilled. You can see the full list of our benefits on our careers page, but they include:

  • Salary band: £75,000-100,000 base
  • Private Medical Insurance for you and your family
  • Unmind Equity scheme
  • Generous gender neutral parental leave
  • 25 days annual leave plus your birthday day off and 2 celebration days
  • Flexible working, including flexible use of Public Holidays and 3pm finishes on Fridays June-August
  • Hybrid working from dog-friendly Central London office (1 team day a week)
  • £1,000 annual learning budget with 2 days learning leave
  • Monthly ClassPass Subscription
  • Financial wellbeing support via Bippit
  • Access to the Unmind platform, including Talk - book free, unlimited sessions with a therapist or coach
