At Big Health, our purpose is to help millions back to good mental health.

We do this through our digital therapeutics: Daylight™ for worry and anxiety, and Sleepio™, for poor sleep.

These fully automated cognitive and behavioral programs are as scalable and clinically validated as drugs.

And our software combines the intimacy of the human voice, engaging animation, and clinically rigorous techniques to engage people anytime and anywhere and ultimately help them overcome their mental health challenges.

Today, over 12 million people worldwide have access to Big Health’s products, via leading employers in the US (including Target, Google, and Boston Medical) and the UK’s NHS.

This is an outstanding opportunity to scale an enterprise-grade platform while having a meaningful impact on the lives of individuals.

Join us and bring your unique talents to do great things!

About our Engineering and overall Product Development team:

  • We are organized in 6 cross functional teams aligned around Products/Problem Domains. Our teams are composed of talented people across key domains of: Clinical, Product Management, Engineering Management, Frontend and Backend Engineering, QE, Design and Creative.
  • As an Engineer at Big Health, you have the choice of working on one of six distinct pods/problem domains: Sleepio (our insomnia product), Daylight (our anxiety product), Therapeutic Content Platform (the foundation for all therapeutic digital content), Enrollment (signing up users and their journey), Data, and Quality Assurance.

Our Tech Stack:

  • React.js
  • React Native
  • Typescript
  • Python
  • Zappa
  • Serverless Framework
  • Django
  • AWS
  • PostgreSQL
  • Kinesis
  • S3
  • Glue
  • Jest
  • Selenium
  • Pytest

Interview Process:

  • Each step of our interview process is a two-way conversation. While we want to assess our candidates, we also know they are assessing us. Therefore, our recruiting team will check-in at each step, and if a candidate would like to speak with anyone on our team, from another Engineer or Product Designer on their potential future pod, to our leadership team to understand our business trajectory, to someone in HR to discuss their potential equity grant, we make sure to provide that space. 
  • We also are thoughtful about which pod would be the best fit for a candidate’s career goals and what kind of work excites them, so with each conversation, we explore that further. 
  • We have a 3-4 step interview process that includes a conversation with a Technical Recruiter, a conversation with the Hiring Manager, and a final remote panel interview that is typically 5 distinct sections that we can schedule all in one day or over multiple days depending on the candidate’s needs.
  • We know that the most equitable process is one that shows what you can do, rather than what your credentials are, so there is typically a choice of a work project as well.

Life at Big Health:

  • Be part of a team that includes clinical psychologists, software engineers, business leaders and even a former professional magician [shh… it’s a secret]. 
  • Surround yourself with the smartest, most enthusiastic and dedicated people you’ll ever meet, but who listen well, learn from their mistakes and when things go wrong, generously pull together to help each other out 
  • Check out our values - they’re a living, breathing part of our culture
  • Enjoy benefits including a generous vacation policy, professional development fund, flexible working locations and more.
  • Competitive salary packages including stock options.



Because we are on a mission to bring millions back to good mental health, we believe it’s essential to reflect the diversity of those we intend to serve. We’re an equal opportunity employer dedicated to building a culturally and experientially diverse team that leads with empathy and respect.

Additionally, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with criminal histories in a manner consistent with the requirements of the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance. Big Health participates in E-Verify and will provide the federal government with Form I-9 information from all new employees to confirm that they are authorized to work in the U.S. Big Health does not use E-Verify to pre-screen applicants.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I was hired as a recruiting coordinator and very quickly moved into full-cycle recruiting. That was possible because of the team. Our VP of Engineering took the time to train me himself on hiring for the Engineering roles. After 18 months I was given the opportunity to work on marketing projects and then made the move fully to that team.
