Company Description:

We are creating the future of brain-computer interfaces: building devices now that have the potential to help people with paralysis regain mobility and independence and invent new technologies that could expand our abilities, our community, and our world.

Team Description:

Neuralink is seeking accomplished candidates with a record of outstanding achievement in software engineering. Engineers on the Lab Systems software team work closely with other teams – neuroscientists, physicists, roboticists, chip designers, pathologists, and mechanical engineers – to build Neuralink’s centralized data aggregation and analysis platform. We are building a data platform to collect, organize, and visualize a diverse set of data ranging from neural signal recordings to brain histology images to microfabrication manufacturing data. As a member of our team, you will have the opportunity to own projects that drive engineering and experimentation at Neuralink.

You will have the opportunity to fully own and drive projects, from interfacing with stakeholders, gathering requirements, and delivering exceptional software.

Jobs at Neuralink are highly dynamic; depending on your skills and our needs, you may work across a wide range of projects, from interpreting neural data to analyzing histology, building surgical tools, or developing brand-new BCI approaches. Successful candidates will be highly adaptable, able to deploy core technical and creative skills to tackle a wide range of problems and have a keen sense of urgency.

  • You are a cross-disciplinary team member. You are excited to work with and learn from software, mechanical, electrical, materials, biological engineers, and neuroscientists. You are comfortable communicating across teams.
