Vision

helping the global population achieve better mental health

Why

At any given time, about 10 % of the world's population is suffering form depression and depressive symptoms. A disturbingly big portion of this group is not receiving any kind of help with their condition.

That's about to change.

We're lowering the threshold, cost and stigma. Digital don't judge.

background

cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) identifies a family of interventions that are widely recognised as the set of psychologial treatments with the most extensive empirical support.

The first generation of this tradition was behaviour therapy: the application of learning principles to well-evaluated methods designed to change overt behaviour.

By the late 1970s, behaviour therapy had moved into the era of classic CBT: a new generation of methods and concepts focused on the role of maladaptive thinking patterns in emotion and behaviour, and the use of methods to detect and change those patterns.

The “third wave” of CBT brought with it new approaches to therapy, with more focus on a person's relationship to their thoughts and emotions, rather than just the content of them. Third wave methods emphasised such issues as mindfulness, emotions, acceptance, relationships, values, goals and meta-cognition.

By helping people to reveal their true thoughts and behaviour patterns, reducing bias, and providing 24/7 follow-up, we are bringing the Fourth Wave of Cognitive Therapy to the world through Data Science.

FULLSTACK SOFTWARE ENGINEER

Vi trenger hjelp til å bygge infrastrukturen for å hente, oppbevare og prosessere sensitive data i Azure.

Vi vet vi trenger kompetanse på MS Azure for datalagring og
-prosessering med særlig fokus på GDPR og sikkerhet. 

Vi tror følgende vil være sentrale behov: API-utvikling, sikkerhet/kryptering, algoritmer, datastrukturer og effektiv datamodellering. 


Du har sannsynligvis erfaring med Azures ML-kapabiliteter, men nysgjerrighet er viktigst.

Kreativ, initiativrik og løsningsorientert innstilling er helt sentralt!

Vi er på et stadium hvor vi har stor fleksibilitet for de valgene vi skal ta, men er også avhengig av å levere verdi raskt. Dette er altså en stilling hvor du får mye spillerom til å gjøre tekniske avklaringer og undersøkelser. 

UX Designer

Lyst til å bruke design-ferdighetene dine til å gjøre livet bedre for millioner av mennesker?

Vi jobber med å forbedre og videreutvikle design på mobilappen som er brukerens inngang til løsningen vår. I fremtiden kan det være aktuelt med nettbrett/web-løsninger. 

Du identifiserer deg sannsynligvis som UX-designer, gjerne med bakgrunn innen psykologi. Har du direkte eller indirekte erfaring med depresjon er det bare et pluss.



Du har en god porsjon empati og forståelse for at vi jobber med brukere hvor kognitiv belastning og krav til egeninnsats fra brukeren er en delikat balanse. 

UX-research, brukertesting og utforming/prototyping av digitale brukeropplevelser fortrinnsvis på mobil, er kjerneaktiviteter. Erfaring med digital produktutvikling med en lite tilgjengelig brukermasse er en fordel. Du må gjerne være gira på tjenestedesign, og erfaring med markedsføring er helt supert!
