Intro

Alex is an AI-powered app created to help people break free from bad habits and into better mental health. We are looking for an ambitious engineer with an entrepreneurial mindset who’s interested in psychology, AI and want to make a positive impact in the world. You will become a core member of the tech team and take on a broad set of responsibilities - working closely with a small and highly skilled product development team. With funding primarily from Sweet Studio (the King founders), we’re now excited to continue the epic journey that lies ahead and to make our mark on the world.

Product

Our product is a mobile consumer app for Android and iOS where the users can track their triggers, get personalized support and learn about their own psychology. Smoking is the first bad habit we are targeting, and the platform is built to scale to different bad habits and mental health issues as we expand. This includes Sugar, Snacking, Overeating, Porn Overuse, Betting, Gaming, Shopping, Mild Depression, Anxiety, Sleep and Stress.

Company

Alex Health AB or “Alex” is a for-profit Stockholm based AI & psychology startup currently developing a 2nd generation behavioural change app. Alex set off with a clear mission to help 1 000 000 000 people break free from bad habits and into better mental health. The company was founded in 2018 and is currently run by a team of 5 people. Alex is currently in the process of closing their seed financing round and has closed a partnership deal with an international pharmaceutical company. The roadmap consists of creating new partnerships while maintaining our current ones and expanding our team as well as improving the product and our technology stack. The company is based in Norrsken House (Birger Jarlsgatan 57) and Sweet Studio (by the central station).

Role

You should enjoy coding and be able to take a key role in building and improving Alex’ source code and infrastructure. No task is too big or too small for you. Your primary responsibility will be to scale and expand our java-backend, but you should expect to sometimes go full-stack and work with our React Native client, or to take part in building our python powered AI modules. Aside from that we are looking for candidates who are strong problem solvers and appreciate the art of product development. We do not expect you to be an expert in all these areas, but you will be given plenty of opportunity and support to develop your skill set further. This is a unique opportunity to become an important team member of a startup with huge growth potential and to join the adventure that lies ahead.

  • Entrepreneurial mindset and not afraid to get his/her hands dirty
