Mindbloom Named One of the 50 Best Remote-First Companies to Work For
In 2021, Mindbloom was recognized by Built In as one of the "50 Best Remote-First Companies to Work For in 2021."
Mindbloom was joined by remote-first tech giants Twitter, Dropbox, and Slack, and along with Hims/Hers is one of few healthcare brands recognized by Built In in the remote-first category.
“Built In’s editorial teams have hand-selected the 50 Best Remote-First Companies to Work For. All have made long-term commitments to hiring and supporting remote employees, and we think they have the perks, culture and organizational capacity to allow all workers’ careers to flourish, regardless of location,” Built In mentions in their announcement.
Mindbloom has been a remote-first company since its inception in 2019. After piloting clinical services with a physical clinic in NYC, Mindbloom quickly adapted to the impact of COVID-19 in 2020 by offering clients fully virtual, at-home psychedelic therapy.
“Being a remote-first company, both as an employer and as a client-facing service, helps us increase access to psychedelic therapy for people who otherwise wouldn't be able to obtain it. The cherry on top is working with a phenomenal group of people around the world who are super mission-driven to transform people's lives and transform the world,” Georgette Monserrat, People Lead at Mindbloom, says, “I'm psyched to be part of such a progressive, trail-blazing company working in the cutting edge field of psychedelic telemedicine.”
