Interns

Want to build your upcoming career on purpose and meaning?


We are looking for 1 to 2 full-time interns to help us in our day-to-day administration, in order to bring state-of-the-art, free-of-charge tools for personal growth and human connection to as many people as possible.

What we believe

At 29k we believe that individuals have the capacity to change the world for the better. If we can help people live more meaningful lives, they will improve the world through their actions. 

To achieve this ambitious goal, we're developing a platform that combines proven psychology-based exercises with cultivating deep human connection through group support. Democratizing the best tools in the world and making them free.

Who we are

29k is a non-profit foundation, founded by the Norrsken Foundation and Ekskäret Foundation, with research partners at Karolinska, University of London and Harvard. We are building a free and open-source platform for personal development. Our 3-year goal is to improve the lives of 5 million people, and our long term goal is to reach a threshold where we see systemic change in the world.

Our app (check it out in 🍎 AppStore or 🤖 PlayStore), launched at the beginning of 2020, is funded by philanthropists and partnerships, and thus free for the end-users. Since the release, with very limited marketing, more than 80 000 people from 150+ countries have downloaded the app and given it an average rating of 4.9 out of 5.

In our team, we work in a self-organising manner — creating, starting and taking responsibilities for initiatives together. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to take ownership and build a team with the different skills and competencies we have in the organisation.
