Our goal at Huckleberry is to build the #1 family wellbeing brand. Our first product improves children’s sleep, considered to be the top challenge for new parents, by combining AI with human experts to determine the most personalized, effective steps for each individual family, without the price tag of an expensive consultation.

The team includes Berkeley Ph.D.s in computer science and predictive analytics, a sleep researcher with 10 years at Harvard Medical School, and experienced pediatric sleep professionals trained in evidence-based practices. We are growing quickly, and will be expanding beyond sleep this year.

The Huckleberry app has 4.9/5.0 stars on the app store, with excellent engagement and strong word-of-mouth growth. Parents just wish they had heard about Huckleberry sooner. We are looking for a Senior Full Stack Developer to continue developing our Android/iOS apps and server infrastructure to deliver new products and services.

This is a role that requires strong technical skills, an eye for detail, experience delivering high quality digital products to millions of users and an ability to drive projects forward. Join Huckleberry to be a key player in improving the day-to-day lives of families around the world.
