Senior Software Engineer, Full Stack – Elevate Labs – San Francisco


Elevate Labs is on a mission to help people everywhere discover their mind's limitless potential.

The ability to write well and speak eloquently deeply affects your trajectory in life, regardless of profession. Unfortunately, many people leave high school and even college extremely unprepared in these areas. Our flagship mobile app, Elevate, teaches concrete cognitive skills through 35 games (with more on the way). The app has over 25 million downloads and has received numerous accolades, including Apple’s App of the Year award.


But the Elevate app was just the beginning. We've recently launched Balance, a meditation app that will focus on improving other areas of the mind, including stress management, sleep quality, and much more. It's a truly personalized experience that makes meditation more accessible to millions of people, including those who previously felt that meditation didn’t work for them.


To support our growing products, we're looking for an experienced full stack engineer to build the service infrastructure powering our experiences. We are an agile team looking to make our customers' lives better by building the future of cognitive training and proactive mental fitness.


In our collaborative environment, you’ll work across teams and projects to build amazing products that educate and delight our customers. You’ll work on our backend services, ETL pipelines, developer tooling, web-based administration portals, and more - so a love of learning new technologies (or prior experience!) is appreciated.
