Join us in building a better internet — we're looking for a full stack developer to join our team in a leadership position.

Sane’s mission is to raise the collective wisdom of humanity by enabling meaningful ways of creating and sharing knowledge. We do this by conducting independent research, hosting a podcast about networked thinking, and building a tool for collecting, connecting, and sharing thought-processes. We're currently out in beta.

Our vision is to build a company that works with intention, diligence, and care to solve one of the most pertinent challenges facing society. We see technology as a means to an end — a tool in our belt where building a better internet means building a better world. We’re independent thinkers looking to build a multi-disciplinary team. We value people who are absolute masters in their craft, but are also willing to jump into new things, learn fast, and are always ready to reiterate and improve.

We’re two founders based in Europe (Barcelona and Brussels) and are looking to build a hybrid work model with an office in Barcelona where our teammates can spend as much (or as little) time as they want.

The product

We’re building a tool for collecting, creating, and sharing thought processes. The interface, the ‘thought space’, is in its essence a minimalist digital environment, combined with a set of features that enable anyone to create, collect and connect documents related to a given project. It functions as a repository for information sources that are interlinked by the user to form a network of connected nodes. Users can publish their spaces and share them as unique URLs to showcase any type of knowledge. Sane is being built for anyone who works and thinks with documents. It’s made for studying, sharing research, collecting recipes, writing fiction, sharing a professional profile, showcasing creative work, creating online courses, and everything in between.

You can think of Thought Spaces as if Roam, Substack, Are.na, and Linktree had a baby, and the godfather was Ted Nelson.
