Embedded Systems Engineer

Who We Are
Our mission is to cement mental wellness as a pillar of modern life. Our first product is a handheld meditation trainer, Core, that pulses in your hands to help you focus, and analyzes heart rhythm to give you feedback on calmness and progress over time. Our first batch quickly sold out and organically attracted engagements with a Grammy-winning artist, NFL and PGA Tour athletes, Lululemon, Saks 5th Ave, and more.

Core Wellness is a startup made of a tight-knit team of bright individuals motivated to bring this vision to everyone.  We bring together expertise in Education, Hardware, Behavioral Science, Technology, and Music to create a diverse and collaborative problem solving environment. Above all we value vulnerability, excellence, and support

Where We Are
We have been testing and iterating for years, refining the product experience to make it stand out above the rest . Now we are ready to scale our entire team to get this product to market as fast as possible. This will be the most exciting and most critical time for Core. With this comes the opportunity for you to make a huge impact on Core, Core's customers, and the future of meditation.
