  • Own MindLogger front-end technical orchestration, including mobile and web apps, ensuring they are responsive, intuitive, and user-friendly.
  • Drive the architecture, planning, and development of front-end features and UX, ensuring they are aligned with user needs and business goals and delivered at quality and on time.
  • Be a technical leader to our existing development team of internal and external engineers.
