Senior Backend Engineer

About our work at Grace Health

We offer a one of a kind opportunity to grow, take real ownership and contribute with your knowledge and insights to a fast-paced startup with a true impact. Working with Grace is working in the sweet spot of cutting edge tech and impact driven entrepreneurship. Based in Stockholm, we're a passionate team committed to making female health accessible to women all around the world by leveraging tech (such as ML and NLP) to build a women's health clinic in the privacy of your own phone.

Currently we are focusing on building a chatbot that enable women to track and plan their period, understand their fertility and get answers to important questions about reproductive and sexual health. Addressing the low middle income countries (LMIC) gives us plenty of room to explore and essentially help expose new markets and its potential to the rest of the world.

What is it like to work at Grace health?

Our culture is defined by curiosity, drive and passion. We value ambition and initiative but also foster a culture of collaboration and life balance. 

We take time to have fun together and socialise which we believe is the essence of creating a well functioning team. We agree with Einstein that it’s an insanity to try to solve problems, using the same methods and expect different outcomes.

We are a collection of minds wanting to adopt new paradigm of thoughts and technologies to solve global challenges.
