Black Lotus Meditation App Business Development Manager

Location: Bengaluru, Karnataka.

Black Lotus is an early stage startup, creating the Internet of Kindness. The internet and social media have connected us but left us lonelier and unhappier than before through trolling, cyber bullying and negative information. This has also impacted our physical and mental wellbeing. At Black Lotus, we believe we can solve this problem – by being a productive & positive platform to connect communities and people through kindness.

Currently, the Black Lotus app helps people meditate and do kind acts for others. Users have already clocked in 60,000 kindness acts and 70,000 hours of meditation. With 50k+ installs and 700+ 5 star reviews, we are just getting started. We are taking the next big leap and building some very exciting features that will bring the app to millions of users. Come and join us on this exciting and positive adventure and together we can increase the Global Happiness Index!
