Full Stack Engineer

  • Full-time

Company Description

The World Health Organization recently classified OCD as a top ten most handicapping condition by lost income and quality of life, since it is typically chronic, produces irrational fears, and causes extreme anxiety. Over 90,000,000 people worldwide suffer from OCD; however, only 10% of these people get effective treatment, and it usually takes 14-17 years for them to do so. As a result, OCD patients silently suffer alone, giving OCD the nickname "the secret illness".

nOCD has laid the foundation needed to solve this global problem, helping OCD patients access clinically supported treatment in minutes instead of decades, including pharmacological interventions. Our platform manages the largest community of OCD patients in the world, using both content and technology. It offers content to help patients and providers understand more about OCD  and always-on technology to engage patients to stay compliant with their treatment. We have been financially supported by some of the most experienced and influential figures in the healthcare industry, including 7wire Ventures.
