Position: Full-time


Atai is a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing innovative compounds and technologies to heal mental health disorders for everyone, everywhere. We operate a decentralized model whereby Atai incubates, acquires and supports individual platform companies by providing them strategic and operational functions centrally, allowing our platform companies to stay lean and agile in their clinical pursuits, whilst also being able to leverage the expertise of a multibillion-dollar global biotechnology company. Atai is pursuing a world-first strategy to deploy our clinical compounds alongside a clinically validated digital ecosystem which aims to utilize cutting edge technology, clinical protocol, human-interaction psychology and data science to enhance the clinical efficacy and engagement of our compounds.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Senior Software Engineer in Atai’s core digital platform company, Introspect, which uses evidence-based psychological protocol and highly engaging content (across video, audio and articles) to deliver psychotherapy to patients alongside their medication regime. Introspect forms the heart of Atai’s digital strategy, acting as a point of integration for other digital platform technologies and, crucially, facilitating Atai’s data strategy to expand treatment precision and care personalization.
