High impact Internship in Mental Health Startup | Join a mission-driven team | Passion needed | 100% | Based in Zurich, only hybrid possible | 6 months, with possible follow-up employment

Who we are

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.


What you will work on

We are a startup with people at the center, technology at its core, and strong growth. We need support in the areas of UX/UI Design, Social Media, Sales presentation, and Communication. To be more precise you will:

  • Design user interfaces that are user-friendly, visually appealing, and intuitive.
  • Create design mockups and prototypes for testing.
  • Collaborate with product owners, engineers, and other stakeholders.
  • Create and maintain design guidelines, standards, and best practices.
  • Work with design and marketing teams to create visuals for social media posts.
  • Translate Aepsy’s concepts into internal and external presentations.

Based on your interests and strengths, we will develop a job profile together that meets these points. The person (you) is in the center, we will find out the rest together.


Key things we are looking for

  • We need someone with the potential to become an integral part of our startup team. The internship serves as an entry point. We see it as an opportunity for both sides to find out how well it harmonizes, whether it brings joy for both and whether the intensity of the job is suitable for you and your life goals.
  • You have an eye for great product experiences, design, and aesthetics to carry the message and value of the Aepsy brand across all channels.
  • Professional background or field of study is less relevant. What counts is the right intention, your will to make a difference, passion and the ability to link deep thought with concrete action.
  • When you hear about Aepsy's mission, your heart should beat faster and your hand should twitch because you don't want to miss the chance to be a part of it. Belief in what we do should be a source of strength for the big tasks ahead.
  • An understanding of the importance of our task and the joy of new things. The drive to make something out of your life that is bigger than your own universe. We need people who are crazy enough to believe that they can change the world with their actions. So, you have to be a little crazy.

In a nutshell

  • The opportunity to do a full-time internship.
  • You are fluent in Figma and other design tools.
  • You have the belief that by taking action you can improve the world.
  • You enjoy engaging with life, your mind and the universe of emotions.
  • You have an education or work experience that shows you can turn obstacles into personal success.
  • You are fluent in English (spoken and written).


The internship is remunerated in a market-oriented way and aims to permanently integrate you into our team (permanent position). For permanent employees, there is the possibility of employee equity participation.

Together with us

We are a young, ambitious 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 hard for a slightly better world. None of us could count hours in a big company or watch injustice happen. We are also friends, husbands and wives, standup comedians, yoga novices and Zen monks who appreciate and enjoy life.

Sleep on it, read it through again, start to believe that you belong to Aepsy, take a deep breath and send a personal cover letter (yes, it will not only be read, but analyzed) with your resume. Please don't send us an impersonal, standardized cover letter - it is a waste of your and our time. We want to see that you really want this. There are better things for you to do too. For example, enjoying the beautiful sun, taking a walk in the forest or talking to a friend. Life is too beautiful, to write impersonal cover letters:)

About Aepsy

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.
