Description

At Pear, our mission is clear: we are pioneers in Prescription Digital Therapeutics, or PDTs.  Our cross-functional team operates at the intersection of biotechnology and software technology.  Pear discovers, develops, and delivers clinically-validated software-based therapeutics to provide better outcomes for patients, smarter engagement and tracking tools for clinicians, and cost-effective solutions for payers. Every day, we push the boundaries of technology to transform medicine. Pear has a pipeline of products and product candidates across therapeutic areas, including mental health disorders, severe insomnia and multiple sclerosis. Our lead product, reSET®, treats Substance Use Disorder, and was the first PDT to receive marketing authorization from the FDA to treat disease. Pear's second product candidate, reSET-O™ for the treatment of Opioid Use Disorder, is currently under review by the FDA with Breakthrough Designation.  For more information, visit us at www.peartherapeutics.com. 

Come use your engineering talents to help people living with serious diseases, as we progress our pipeline across a range of therapeutic areas, including addiction, MS, schizophrenia and beyond.

Pear’s deep knowledge and experience in the biotech space has set us up with great partnerships and a strong product roadmap. Our engineers are platform-izing our architecture and building new mobile applications.

Our team of engineers, based in Boston and San Francisco, uses a pragmatic agile process to
quickly deliver treatments to patients. We treat each other well, believe in building
a diverse culture of collaboration, and are serious about making Pear a place that’s
good for both those who work here and the patients we serve.

We’re looking for someone to join our Mobile Team, responsible for building mobile applications that help patients living with serious diseases.
