We are building a faith-based meditation app. Think Headspace or Calm, but for prayer & catholic spirituality. We believe that we're all looking for peace, and that there is no surer way to find it than by learning to sit in silence with God: “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” MT 11:28.
And we believe that if we’re able to combine the beauty of the Church’s prayer & meditation traditions with the world's best technology & design, it might just change the world.
Why join us?
This work is incredibly humbling. Everyday we hear amazing stories and we get the pleasure of working on something that’s impacting lives. One of our favorite user quotes: “I hate quoting an old, overused cliche, but I’ve been very lost. And I think for the first time in a while I may be found.”
You’ll get to journey with a VC-backed Silicon Valley startup from the beginning. In the past year we've gone from 500k prayers completed to almost 10m. When the company is this small, every employee is a core team member who is expected to help build the company as a whole as we settle into a culture and continue to expand the team.
HQ will be in Chicago with the full team and would love to have everyone there. That being said, we’re super flexible with location / hours; don’t care when you work just that it gets done.
Engineering at Hallow
As a small team each engineer controls the domain over their respective area. Our product team works with our designer to help build out a backlog of functionality to implement in our apps. From there, our dev team scopes out work into two week cycles. Developers work through the functionality until complete and then code is pushed to GitHub and a PR created. Code reviews are performed on the code and the functionality is QA'd before merging. Merged code is then queued to be included in the next app release.
- We are streaming terabytes of audio a day to users across the globe with varying levels of internet connectivity. Our goal is to make every request feel instant no matter where you are.
- Building algorithms to sift through our millions of prayer sessions to be able to recommend the best content individualized for each user.
