Who we are and what we are looking for

The mission we have inspires us and challenges us at the same time. It is work in which skills, thoughts and ideas are poured into a product influencing thousands of souls and hearts. And with that, comes great responsibility. It requires passion for the work we do, a high level of integrity and the willingness to try things no one has tried before.

A team full of people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world they live in.

Yes, we are a hardworking team, but not for us alone, not for money or personal fame, but for the people we serve at the center of our efforts: Our team, the clients, psychologists on our platform and supporters across the country.

We are a technology, product and design driven company, but deeply believe in the potential of humanity. Technology is an enabler for change, it speeds things up, turns them upside down. But it is done by, and should only be used for: the good of people.

After the first years in a small team, we are now ready to launch to the next phase. We need a deeply committed professional for a key role in our organization - new member of the core team.


  • Responsibility of the structure, quality and further development of the psychological content as well as the Psychologist/Psychotherapist structure on the Aepsy platform.
  • Collaborate and grow partnerships with associations, institutions and groups of interest in and around the field of psychology and mental health as a whole.
  • Coordinate Community work across the Aepsy Providers (+200 at the time) by defining standards, communicating changes, setting up structures and delegating quality-enhancing processes and initiatives.
  • Navigate the high-impact, high-dynamic environment of a fast-paced young organization with evolving priorities, limited resources and high levels of integrity and deep sense of responsibility. Flexibility, adaptability, and a hands-on approach to problem-solving are essential.
  • Empathy, (emotional) intelligence and excellent interpersonal / communication skills to understand the unique and complex needs of clients and providers in the mental health space in Switzerland. Ability to navigate sensitive discussions in the team as well as with stakeholders while maintaining confidentiality and privacy.


What is in your backpack

  • Master's degree in Psychology from a University / University of Applied Sciences and a minimum of three years of work experience (best in a start-up environment).
  • A proven track record in a leading role in which responsibility, adaptability, integrity were needed and put to work together with your know-how in psychology or psychotherapy.
  • A deep understanding of your field of work, a passion for expanding your possibilities, the desire to grow and learn beyond what others are willing to do – all in the service of people that need your support, a greater cause.
  • Fluent in English, German, and concepts of the mind and mental health.


Joining us in a senior position means you'll work shoulder to shoulder with the founders of Aepsy, defining, shaping, and co-creating the future of mental healthcare. With this responsibility comes equity compensation, which plays a key part in the remuneration package next to the cash component. We want you to be part of this journey with all we've got. You can design a hybrid work schedule (remotely if needed with some fixed days in our office in Zurich, Kreis 1). Please note that cash compensation is lower compared to the average high-paying corporate job.

Not Alone, Always together

We are a young, ambitious, and cross-functional team with diverse backgrounds and beliefs. We love conversations about the big picture and the small individual parts. We believe in what we do and work every day to turn it into reality. None of us could count hours in a big company or watch injustice happen. We are also fathers and wives, stand-up comedians, yoga novices, and Zen monks who appreciate and enjoy life.

Sleep on it, pick up the ad again. Read it through, believe that you belong to Aepsy, take a deep breath and hand in your letter of application and CV. And please don't send us standardised applications - we want to see that you really, really want this.

Mental Health Care
Seilergraben 53, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland

Why we do what we do: As humans, we perceive the world through our minds. It is like a gateway we can change, clear and learn how to navigate the inner and outer world. Knowing this, is a super power. Difficult times can turn from threats into opportunities to grow. If one learns it early enough, a mental health challenge can also be seen as a call to adventure. A start of a journey where the final destination is a calm place deep within - a unique place we believe resides in all of us.

Psychologists are experts of that process. They help us through reflection and empathy to navigate that journey. At Aepsy, we think if you are stuck at a certain point and are brave enough to reach out for help, you deserve an easy, effortless access to these experts. One that fits your needs and personality – one you can trust. And if we open up that access for enough people, a beautiful and silent revolution starts from within to the outside world. One that solves it all.
