Founding Product Designer – Start Up / Native App – £120,000

Greater London Permanent £80000.00 - £120000 per annum + shares

The Company

This is the first meditation app to guide you all the way from mindfulness to awakening.

Almost every meditation app on the market today actually misses the point of meditation. They all focus only on Mindfulness – the project to reduce stress, improve focus, perform better. But they leave out the Deeper side of meditation – the project to answer profound questions about the nature of yourself, your mind, your relationship to the world. This is what traditions like Zen speak to. This type of meditation practice offers far greater benefits, such as radical insights into true freedom from anxiety, and deep, lasting well-being. Historically, this teaching has been isolated in monasteries and temples in East Asia. But it doesn’t have to be.

This will be the first app to offer an accessible, understandable, long-term program of Deeper meditation for a Western audience. A proprietary curriculum of simple daily meditations, structured into a compelling pathway, that takes users from ‘beginner’ to ‘as deep as they want to go’, gradually deepening their practice and understanding over multiple years. This app will be more profound, more impactful, and more beneficial than anything else on the market today.

The Role

We have Seed funding from a top-tier Silicon Valley VC, and one of the handful of Authentic Sanbo Zen Masters in the world on board to oversee the content and teaching. Now, we’re looking for our first hire; a founding UX/UI Designer to join us on the journey and lead the charge on the creative and UX vision of the product!


  • Own the end-to-end Design process of MVP1: user research, information architecture, wireframes, prototypes, etc
  • Work on subsequent iterations of the product post-launch (MVP1, 2, 3)
  • Work on other secondary design requirements as needed (e.g. websites, etc)

Ideal Experience

  • Experience working in start-ups in 0 to 1 phase
  • Experience designing beautiful and functional B2C consumer apps


  • Deep understanding of human-centred design
  • Ability to ‘dream’ with us to help design the product from first principles – take our ‘draft feature list’ and help shape it into a workable, shippable product and contribute on product strategy from the start
  • Ability to ‘get into the head of the user’; carry out ongoing iterations of user testing with prototypes


  • Interest in meditation is a huge bonus (not necessarily a lot of experience, but a passion/interest/curiosity for the project)
  • Happy with remote/hybrid work environment

What we offer

  • We can offer competitive salary and meaningful equity in the business
  • Chance to work on a project alongside an Authenticated Sanbo Zen Master that aims to bring deep meditation practice, life fulfilment and happiness to potentially millions of users
