About the role

Company Description

Flowly is a science-backed and data-driven app designed to reduce stress, anxiety and pain for improved overall wellness. Using a mobile app and VR headset, Flowly collects biometric data such as HR and HRV and converts it to visualizations in virtual experiences that reduce stress and pain by over 40%.

The founding team is made up of Yale, DreamWorks, and Hyperloop One alums in conjunction with a world-class clinical team at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and USC. Flowly has also been studied in NIH-backed clinical trials.

Flowly is venture-backed and graduate of Y Combinator. Our members report life-changing outcomes including how Flowly has empowered them to stop taking opioids, sleep through the night for the first time in fifteen years, and experience deep relaxation on a daily basis.

About Flowly

Flowly is an app for chronic pain, anxiety, and sleep management. You can think of it like the VR version of Calm, but we send all of our members a kit that includes a VR headset and heart rate sensor. Essentially, we train members to auto-regulate their nervous systems and transition from fight or flight mode to relax and restore mode. We're an early stage startup and a small team but we move quickly. We have a grant from the NIH taking Flowly through clinical trials and we're also distributing Flowly currently through the Apple App store.
