MindRight is a US based technology company whose mission it is to advance health equity by making mental health care radically accessible and inclusive of communities of color and low-income families. MindRight 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.
Being a young company on the US east coast, MindRight was looking to build a team of high quality software engineers that would commit to getting their platform to the next phase. The local labor market for software specialists being very tight, MindRight found Tunga on Google and decided to give it a try.
