Entrepreneurial CTO and co-founder for mental health app

Salary Competitive
Equity To be negotiated

As a technical genius, you’ve probably heard this one before: “This is an exciting role with great opportunity…” Even though you might have been tired of hearing it, we genuinely believe that this might actually be one!

Here's why:

  • The problem we want to solve: 46.4% of Americans will experience a mental illness during their lifetime. And that’s just in the States… 

  • The Solution: Nuna - the trusted and personal companion for mental wellbeing, bringing evidence-based support in an affordable and accessible way with technology.

To achieve that, we are looking for an exceptionally motivated, curious and results-driven CTO to join Nuna as co-founder and help us build a world-class product.

We have already built a working app with very promising results, but we need you to sharpen the tech, so we can make it the best in the world and fuel our global expansion.

What’s the setup like?

Nuna is founded by experienced entrepreneurs together with the Danish venture studio KRING. This gives us extra firepower, as the founders can bring their expertise and drive, whereas the venture studio brings the first investment, help from their in-house venture building team, as well as an impressive network making it easier to get the next investment. 

It gives us an unfair advantage to make this happen together!

To build our solution, we mainly apply 3 ingredients:

  • Science, rooting everything we do in evidence, right now centred on psychology.

  • Design, to create a world-class and humane product experience.

  • Technology, powering the product, enabling us to scale and help people regardless of geography, time and usage.

What are my responsibilities going to be?

It’s actually quite simple: Use your tech skills to make world-class technology and ultimately shape the product towards global impact.

In slightly more details, you will be responsible for building and leading your own development team, take ownership of our tech stack and of course help building an awesome company with the other founders!

We have made a more detailed description below, but please challenge us on it → you’re the expert here, remember? ;)

What we believe you'll be doing:

  • Live out a desire to use technology for purpose and impact in the mental health-space

  • Be a member of the Nuna founder team and co-shape the overall company strategy, particularly the technology- and product direction.

  • Build and lead an engineering team (including engagement, recruitment, retention and team management)

  • Set the technical vision and -roadmap priorities

  • Continuous sparring with the rest of the team, especially around the product - Bring your technical wisdom and lead the process of taking ideas to implementations

  • Partner with engineering teams to ensure smooth implementation, operation and development - and partake yourself when and where it's needed

  • Define best practices around code practices, methodologies, development, quality assurance, data processing and -security

  • Be a continuous learner and practitioner of experiments, hacks and hypotheses challenging

What we believe we are looking for (but feel free to enlighten us):

  • 2-5 years (min. 2 years hands-on) experience architecting and building production stage tech products, preferably from pre-launch through scale

  • Strong understanding of general software architecture best practices, including the understanding of databases, security practices and cloud infrastructure (we use MS Azure)

  • technologies: Fluent in Javascript / Node.js / TypeScript and REST API design

  • Great understanding of databases (PostgreSQL, MySQL, or similar)

  • Proven ability to scale and build engineering teams

  • Strong knowledge of- and experience with the implementation of modular tech stacks and heavy use of API's and integrations

  • Experience working with open source frameworks and bending them to real applications

  • Experience with native app development is a great plus (server + client-side, e.g. techs React Native, Xamarin)

  • Experience with bot frameworks and NLP technology is a plus (Azure, RASA)

  • Relevant experience with ML, bots and MS Azure is a plus

  • Startup experience in engineering leadership positions is a great plus

  • Ability to understand and speak English (bonus points for Danish)

What do we offer?

As mentioned above, Nuna is part of the KRING Venture Studio. So besides joining an exciting

 growth journey with Nuna, we help you accelerate the company by supporting with the following competencies:

  • Product design: Assistance on the roadmap, UX, UI, etc. to help you create a successful product.

  • Setting the right board: We have an extensive network to help you set the right Board and Advisory Board.

  • Funding: We have our own fund to raise the first investment and help you raise the next as well.

  • Proven growth processes: We have a structured growth process built and applied across our different ventures to help you accelerate the growth of your future company.

  • Co-working space: KRING has a shared co-working space for you and your future company.

  • and much much more from KRING’s experience in building and co-creating ventures.

Practical stuff

We are reviewing applications and interviewing on an ongoing basis - we want to hire as soon as we find the right candidate. So you better be quick.

We are open to building with talent from around the world, but our founders must be willing to be in Copenhagen for at least 3 months for the validation phase.

So… this was quite a lot of information. But we hope it (at least) made sense and if not, feel free to reach out to Mads Friis, Partner at KRING Venture Studio for more information via the contact email

If you got inspired, we truly hope to hear from you!
