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 also have a large part of our team who works remotely from around the world.] We make gamified, AI-based wearable systems to help assess and coach people with brain-related challenges. 

Our flagship product suite, for Autism, includes apps that help children (or adults) 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.  

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

Join our Mission; join our Team!

Our Culture

At Brain Power, we are passionate about improving the world, treating each other with respect, and working very hard to bring our mission to reality. We focus on high-tech, science-based products, yet we believe that the human-human interactions they foster are where the magic happens. We also practice what we believe, for instance by employing people on the autism spectrum. You will work closely with the Brain Power founder and core staff, in teams and individually, in our well-equipped, windowline office space overlooking Boston and Cambridge. You will work on products that will be rapidly put into use by children and adults who can benefit.

Work in a fast-moving, award-winning startup company, take on big projects, and see children smiling in new ways at their parents because of your code or other work!
