Why join us?
  • Simple Habit is more than a meditation app. We are dedicated to disrupting the mental wellness industry, a space far bigger than meditation. Netflix changed the way we watched TV. Spotify changed the way we listened to music. Airbnb changed the way we travel. Simple Habit is changing the way people manage self-care and self-improvement.

  • In just 2 years, we’ve scaled our platform, inviting 100+ experts to join our community and launching 2,000+ sessions for specific situations and moods. We’ve grown 10x to $5M in ARR with a small team and strong organic support. In the last year, Simple Habit raised $10M Series A round and grew from a team of 5 to 20.

  • Life is full of challenges - work, breakups, infertility, marriage problems, addiction, terminal illness and more. We’ve built a platform that gives users access to a variety of world-class meditation teachers, therapists and executive coaches. In turn, these experts are creating original content to address specific needs and help millions of people around the world to live better.

  • Simple Habit is backed by Foundation Capital, YCombinator, NEA, and a handful of prominent Angel Investors.


Engineering at Simple Habit
Engineering team and processes

We have a 2-person engineering team in charge of three platforms as well as the backend APIs and infrastructure. We work closely with our product manager and designer to define the roadmap and spec out the features. Our sprint is normally two-weeks long and will result in a mobile app update or web deployment.

Technical Challenges

Building data pipelines to study user behavior in content consumption and in turn build better recommendation engine to guide user through our vast library of meditations; Revamp web frontend to provide experience tailored to web users; Scale our backend infrastructure to support the tremendous growth of our user base; Optimize the workflow in our mobile apps to help users form habit of meditating daily.

Projects you might work on
  • Build a recommendation engine and related dashboard to test out various algorithms and visualize the results.

  • Work with product manager and designer to push the iOS app forward in features and optimizing its workflow.

  • Study user behavior on web to see how it is different from mobile and use the result to build an unique web experience.
