An Insider's view of SonderMind

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I'm really lucky to work with a team that genuinely cares about the mission & are dedicated to making it a success. With that comes a lot of trust from leadership. We are encouraged to work efficiently, not measured by the hours we spend at our desk. As long as we are adhering to milestones & timelines, where & when we work is not questioned.

Clarissa

Manager of UX/UI Design

What projects are you most excited about?

As part of Sondermind’s goal to be a complete solution for therapists & their patients, we handle all the therapists' billing, insurance billing, & invoicing. We’re continually expanding out this functionality, & I’m really excited to provide more robust & convenient features to make it easier for people to get therapy & for therapists to get paid.

Anthony

What makes someone successful on your team?

It's important to me to find someone that is a good culture fit. This person contributes their fair share, is motivated and invested in achieving our goals, and believes in our mission. I'm looking for individuals that care for their teammates and the company and is willing to go above & beyond their job description.

Jenny

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

This all comes back to our core value of Courage. Risk-taking is part of the fabric of SonderMind & creativity is risk-taking on a very personal level. It's having the courage to think differently. The team is empowered via our very public celebrations of courage & highlighting how it's OK even when the results fall short the first time.

Brannan

Chief Development Officer

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Refreshing is the word that comes to mind! Everyone treats you with genuine care & everyone helps each other succeed which is such a rarity in my opinion. You can just feel it in the air that everyone is pushing for success because we all believe in what we are doing.
