OUR PORTFOLIO COMPANY

Our portfolio company is a transformational technology initiative innovating at the far edges of human-computer interaction. We are pushing the boundaries in biosensing, visualizing emotion, consciousness, and wearable tech by leveraging positive and behavioural psychology, physiology, biology, neurology, and technology to redefine how humans thrive in the 21st-century. We are conceptualizing and creating interfaces, hardware, haptics and IoT devices that gently nudge humans out of the negative behavioural loops that result in them sabotaging their best efforts at happiness. By democratizing biosensing and wearable technology, we are disrupting the economics of a failed medical system. Delivering accessible-to-all digital therapeutics that delicately influence mental and biological systems, we are preventing and managing issues such as depression, anxiety, and addiction: significantly improving mental resilience, day-to-day performance, and the lives of our users.

Our goal is to understand human beings in a psychological and physiological way that unleashes people’s fullest potential by integrating technology with biology, unlocking the next evolution of humanity. You will be a key contributor in developing and executing a hardware vision and strategy that will significantly and immediately impact people’s lives for the better. Your contribution will lead to game-changing devices that influence the behaviour of the next generation of leaders who will save the world.

Our small team of data science, IOS engineering, and product leadership have been developing for a few years and are ready to take the business to the next level. We have moved from a regional focus to global best-in-class talent to break through and become the defining brand in this space.

WHAT YOU’LL DO

In this role, you will ideate and build hardware for the above portfolio company. Enabling our vision of ubiquitous and continuous biomonitoring devices that connect human biology with a supportive ecosystem that enables free mental health care for all. You will work closely with the Head of Product and Founder to deliver immediate, off-the-shelf hardware solutions while conceptualizing and rapidly prototyping next-generation wearables and a suite of IoT devices that provide the data supporting users to live their best lives. You will build wearables that capture biometrics that speak to the very core of what it means to be human bringing Navy Seal grade sensing to the masses. You will collaborate with bio-physiologists, data science and engineering innovating on the edge of how hardware meets biology to create experiences that help people lead their best life.

You will be your own test subject monitoring and testing prototype after prototype to meet requirements such as comfort, ease of use, speed to market, cleanest possible bio-signal, long-lasting, and BLE enabled so that each prototype is better than the last before. Finally, handing your creation off for scalable production. You will write the firmware for your software engineering counterparts and provide continual QA testing to help find and eliminate bugs.

You will research new and use your existing relationships with hardware manufacturers and contacts from Shenzhen to Puducherry to Silicon Valley, reducing timelines, costs and eliminating redundancies whenever possible. You will investigate new battery and rechargeable solutions, strap-free biosensing stickers, and miniaturized solid-state memory storage, all to find the most favourable location, size and device type to capture the necessary biometrics that level the biased health care system.

WHO YOU ARE

Visionary – While you live in the real world, you know that what is possible is far greater than what is done today. You spend your time dreaming up exoskeletons, implantable brain-machine devices, and AI-driven biosensing wearables that turn us into superheroes.

Curious – Others may not understand you, but they didn’t understand Albert Einstein in his lifetime either. You need to know why and how things work to make sense of them. The sum is greater than the parts, but those parts complete the machine work. You started dismantling and rebuilding small appliances as a kid, and you have never stopped tinkering running test after test after test to get consistent results.

Accelerator – In hardware, timelines matter, so you’ve developed keen project management skills that leap-frog redundant steps. Third-party manufacturing requires incredible coordination between teams inside and outside organizations. As a result, you can keep them all moving forward to a schedule because you have to ship it for people to use it, and you don’t have time for lazy.

Resourceful/Savvy – You don’t bother investigating a broken supply chair, you figure out how to bypass it. When someone doesn’t deliver, you already have a backup plan and an alternative solution, so you’re not road blocked. You know that well-formed relationships can be the deciding factor in shortening delivery times. You’ve cultivated relationships from Shenzhen to Puacherry and around the globe for precisely that reason. You don’t wait for answers. You go out and find them.

Innovational – You are an inventor at heart spending your happiest times tinkering in your self-made workshop discovering the way things work and making them work better. Inventing and improving hardware is your way of life and now you are searching for an opportunity to show the world what you can do.
