Dedicated developers for MindRight

BY Tunga · 5 MIN READ

The Client: MindRight

MindRight is a US based technology company. Its mission is to advance health equity by making mental health care radically accessible. And inclusive of communities of color and low-income families. It partners with healthcare payers and providers to offer culturally-responsive mental health coaching over text message. Their members receive a personal team of coaches who proactively support them 7 days/week, 365 days/year. In August 2020, less than a year after launching, MindRight raised more than $1 million in venture-capital funding.

The Challenge for MindRight

Being a young company on the US east coast, MindRight was looking to build a team of high quality software engineers. Further, it was important that these engineers could commit to getting their platform to the next phase. However, the local labor market for software specialists is very tight. But then they found Tunga on Google and decided to give it a try.

The Solution

MindRight’s web platform was built using MEAN stack (MongoDB, Express.js, Angular and Node.js). Meanwhile, the messaging runs on Twilio. Firstly, in January 2020, Tunga onboarded a first fulltime developer for MindRight. After that, in the summer of 2020 a second fulltime developer.

Both developers work from Nigeria. And they have adjusted work hours to make sure there is overlap with the US team. Meanwhile they are still able to maintain a normal daily rythm.

Subsequently, the developers became an integral part of the core team. That is to say, the work is coordinated through the usual tools (Github, etc). And of course through regular meetings with MindRight’s (US based) management. As it would in any other organization.
