Job opportunity: CTO / Lead Developer at Nori Health

Company & Role Introduction

Nori Health provides evidence-based digital therapies for people living with inflammatory conditions. For improving quality of life and decreasing symptoms such as fatigue, pain, and anxiety. 

We are a seed-stage startup with a small, close team. Our mission is to close the 30% gap in quality of life between chronic disease patients and healthy individuals. We do this by providing top of class digital therapeutics (DTx), of which our first program for Crohn’s Disease & Colitis is now entering clinical trials. The company was founded by Roeland Pater, a Crohn’s Disease patient himself.

In the app, patients enroll in a 6-week program, guided by digital coach Nori. Patients have chat conversations with Nori across evidence-based topics, and based on their personal situation and (medical) needs. Insights are collected to optimize daily routines that are connected to their condition and quality of life.
