    Salary AND share options offered in a fast-growing company. Range depends on experience.


    Bearable is a purpose-driven App that makes health tracking simple, customisable, and engaging so people can effortlessly track everything in one place and get insights into their wellbeing.  

    Our mission is to help 1 billion people feel more in control of their well-being through self care!

    In just over a year we have already established ourselves as one of the leading comprehensive health trackers in the world and are fast growing in a booming mHealth market.  We are still a small company and there is plenty of opportunities for you to make a huge impact!

    We are looking for someone purpose-driven and enthusiastic who can hit the ground running.

    # The Ideal Candidate

    • You enjoy working and delivering independently
    • At least 2 years commercial development experience
    • You've built and deployed something for mobile (send us a link?)
    • Expert knowledge of JavaScript/TypeScript and modern frameworks such as React.
    • Comfortable developing React Native code for both Android and iOS (you have your own Mac)
    • You care about the product as well as the code
    • You are curious and take initiative to explore new things
    • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
    • Strong knowledge of relational databases, but also confident to set up something like Realm (which we’re considering soon).
    • Experience writing and debugging queries.
    • A good understanding of security best practices.

    # Nice to Haves

    • Experience using Google Firebase
    • A background in health tech or at least enthusiastic and passionate about this field
    • Comfortable working in an environment of rapid growth, constant change, and lots of unknowns

    # Main Responsibilities

    • Write, review, deploy, and maintain code in mostly React Native
    • Document the systems you help build, monitor, and maintain
    • Optimise all code releases to ensure ultimate performance and reliability for our end users.
    • Carry out thorough testing on both newly developed and existing functionality before it gets passed to the product team for QA and UAT.
    • Identify, prioritise and execute tasks in the software development life cycle.
    • Coordinate with the rest of the team on prioritising feature requests and bugs
    • Evaluate and recommend solutions to guide team decision making
    • Debug production issues and implement fixes for them
    • Manage other developers once you’re up to speed and review each other's code.

    # You Might Also Work On

    • Planning, prioritising & helping design new features for Bearable
    • Automating our internal processes (for instance related to growth hacking)
    • A new product: we're currently exploring Bearable Pro, a variant of Bearable for medical researchers and clinicians to more easily interact with their patients.
    • Something completely different! As an early-stage company, we tend to be pretty "all hands on deck" when something comes up that we need to get done

    # Benefits

    • This is a fully remote, full-time position. You can choose your own hours as long as your time zone is close to London's.
    • Sustainable and healthy working matters to us. We care about building delightful products for our customers, not hitting arbitrary daily hour counts. 
    • A minimum of 25 days holiday + UK bank holidays
    • Pension (if you’re in the UK)
    • If you're outside of the UK, this position will be permanent and full-time in spirit, but a contract role on paper. The reason for this is that employment outside of the UK comes with significant challenges for a small company like ours. 

    # About Us

      • James S (CEO, in charge of product strategy, finance and business dev)
      • Jesse (Marketing whizz) 
      • James A (Full stack engineer)
    • We're a profitable, bootstrapped company (no external investment).
    • More background on Bearable:
      • James designed Bearable in 2018/19 to help him understand the effect that various daily activities and other factors had on his health.
      • Since we launched Bearable in March 2020, over 280,000 people have used the app, with thousands becoming premium subscribers.
      • We have thousands of reviews (90% 5 stars) across Google Play and Apple App Stores.
      • This year we hired two new team members and want to continue growing
      • We are now well suited for growth and for making Bearable the most versatile and intelligent health tracker in the world.

    # Tools We Use

    • Segment, Mixpanel, Google Analytics
    • Our landing page and blog run on Wordpress, using the Elementor Pro plugin
    • Google Sheets
    • Zendesk
    • Figma
    • Notion
