    Lantern creates simple, effective web and mobile programs based in cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness. Our programs combine professional coaching with interactive exercises, giving users the skills and motivation they need to overcome mental health challenges.

    We’re not about unrealistic promises or get-happy-quick schemes. We’re about removing the stigma and barriers that prevent people from strengthening their emotional selves, offering an evidence-based approach to making every day better.

    In addition to our mission the Lantern team works hard every day to achieve our company cultural goals and aspirations. We think these cultural goals make Lantern a great place to work, now and in the future.

    Company Culture Goals & Aspirations

    Seek Balance: Work and life do not need to be at odds with one another. Maintain a flexible outlook on goals, objectives, and projects and strive to keep everything in balance.

    Have Fun Every Day: Do the little thing that will make someone else’s day more joyful. When we have fun, we like each other more, are more productive, and are more likely to want to come to work.

    Forget the Hierarchy: At Lantern, the best idea wins, no matter who it comes from. Collaborate with others as your equal.

    Strive for Inclusivity: Mental health is for everyone. When interacting with current users, approaching new users, hiring new employees, and creating new content and experiences, make decisions that strive for inclusivity.
