Unmind is a workplace mental health platform. We empower employees to live more fulfilling and balanced lives by changing the way organisations around the world think about mental health. We believe that everyone has the right to a healthy mind – because we all have mental health, all of the time – and we’re striving to create a world where mental health is universally understood, nurtured, and celebrated.

In the past 18 months, Unmind has grown from a 30 person team to a fast-growing, 150 person global organisation with offices in London, Sydney, and New York. With the recent announcement of our Series B funding, we're looking forward to our next stage of growth which will enable us to deliver on our mission to improve the mental wellbeing of ten million people in organisations around the world.

We have ambitious plans to change the perception of mental health and we still need help in achieving them– which is why we’re looking for an exceptional individual to join as a Head of Engineering.

The Role – Head of Engineering - Workplace Wellbeing

We are looking for a Head of Engineering for our Workplace Wellbeing collective, a group of teams responsible for enabling our clients to create environments where their employees can flourish in their Mental Health.

As Head of Engineering you will report to our VP of Engineering and work closely with our cross-functional Product Development leadership team.

Things you'll do in this role

We’re scaling quickly, which means that the focus and responsibilities of any position can be quite dynamic – but here’s how we initially see your skills and passion coming to life at Unmind:

Building Teams - Your initial focus will be on growing our Workplace Wellbeing teams by two teams, along with management and leadership roles to support, coach and mentor teams and engineers within your collective.

Building Direction - You will collaborate with your peers, leaders and engineers on setting and evolving the technical direction, culture and practices that allow your Product Teams to hit some ambitious targets in 2022.

Collaboration & Motivation - You will work closely with leaders- and stakeholders across all of Product Development (4 collectives) to unblock our teams and give them a clear path to be aligned, supported and fulfilled in their work.

Skills and Experience

We firmly believe that no one is the finished article and that there should be learning in every role you do. However, some experience in the following is important for the role.

  • Experience supporting engineers on multiple teams in an agile environment for SaaS products
  • Experience with leading teams during innovation alongside a more established product, where experimentation and use of metrics to drive decision making is the key to a successful journey.
  • Managing managers and technical leaders
  • Leading on hiring, goal setting and performance management of engineers
  • Excellent communication and senior stakeholder management skills
  • Passionate about mental health, tech-for-good, and generally improving people’s lives
