At Harper Institute, we’re on a mission to change how companies deal with the wellbeing and mental health of their people.

We’re building a way to define not just how well people are but to help support staff the world over with prevention (like stopping burn out), and making that kind of help accessible for all.

We started out as one of London’s most advanced medical clinics in preventative medicine. And our proprietary clinical framework works! Now, we’re building out a digital arm to deliver that impact at scale.

We are very well funded with some tier one backing and now need someone to come on the journey to lead technology with us to create a leading digital healthcare product.

Your role is at the heart of our mission. You will lead the technical direction of the platform, architect and build our digital offering and help us change the perception of wellbeing and mental health in the workplace.
