We’re looking for bright, impactful and empathetic software engineers.

Our mission:

Type 2 diabetes has become a global epidemic; in the UK, we spend £9 billion a year alone (that’s 10% of the NHS budget) on treating this. What’s shocking is most of this is preventable – through sustained lifestyle and behaviour change.

Enter OurPath.

We’re here to help people take control of their health. By bringing together behavioural science, technology, and incredible people, our grand mission is to eradicate the global epidemic of chronic lifestyle diseases once and for all.

Our digital habit change programme – delivered digitally through mobile and web apps – helps people to improve their lifestyle, lose weight, and ultimately reduce their risk for conditions such as type 2 diabetes.

We’re also one of the few consumer health brands that are also actively commissioned by the NHS (for us, it’s to help people living with type 2 diabetes).

Our Stage:

We have just closed our Series A fundraising (Dec 2019). We have a team of 75 people, which will continue to expand over the coming years. You can find out more about working with us here and here.

The role:

We’re looking for bright, impactful and empathetic engineers to join our team and engineer solutions to this epidemic.

You’ll architect and build features across our whole product. You’ll work closely with our health coaching and growth teams to fully understand our users.

  • You embrace being a generalist, working on both frontend and backend
  • You adapt and enjoy the ride in a fast-changing start up environment
  • You are empathetic, thoughtful and dedicated

What's in it for you?

  • You’ll get to work with amazing, friendly, smart colleagues all incredibly passionate about solving obesity and lifestyle change.

  • We have regular company-sponsored socials (pub drinks, team dinners, board games and movie nights) that’ll allow you to catch up and make friends outside of your team.
  • A competitive salary and share-options package, giving you a real ownership of the company.
