About Brain Power

Brain Power, LLC, is a mission-based neuroscience tech startup headquartered in Cambridge, MA, with strong ties to MIT, Harvard, and Stanford. We hire the best and brightest from around the world and maintain a fully virtual, work-from-anywhere company paradigm.

Our flagship product suite, called Empowered Brain, includes apps that help children (or adults) on the autism spectrum learn what other people are feeling; deliver videogame-like coaching on face-directed gaze; tutor reading and conversation skills; help users reduce repetitive motor behaviors and underlying stress; give teachers and parents numerical progress reports; and much more. We have successful customers living in 10 countries, and in schools in the US.

Our systems run on smartglasses such as Google Glass or competing headsets from Epson, Intel, and others. (Note: Google (X) recently released the third version of Glass. Brain Power is one of their few partners (listed here), allowing us to resell the device and access many resources specially for partners.)

We also have developed apps that address needs related to traumatic brain injury, job (re-)training, job coaching, eldercare, and objective measurement of behavior in support of clinical trials. Our overall aim, that binds these together, is to unlock the potential of the challenged brain. We are a truly and deeply mission-focused company.

More recently, we have leveraged our neuroscience and education expertise to create Brain Power Academy, an online school offering teachers evidence-based professional development content focused on social-emotional learning, special education and distance learning.

If you are are passionate, sharp, and have the skills and aptitude we need, there is a place for you at Brain Power!
