TRANSLATING PERSONALIZED NEUROSCIENCE INTO EVERYDAY CONSUMER DEVICES
StimScience is a startup with a mission to translate advances in neuroscience into everyday consumer devices. Our science team has spent the past 2+ years pioneering applications of non-invasive, personalized brain stimulation. With seed funding from Khosla Ventures, we are building a team to launch the initial product of this breakthrough research - the first consumer device to help your brain to naturally achieve a longer, higher-quality night’s sleep.

As our Science Advisor Matt Walker wrote in the bestseller Why We Sleep, “Sleep is the single most important thing we can do to reset our brain and body health each day.” Sleep health plays a central role in mental health, long-term memory, learning, and physical fitness. Despite its importance, one in three adults gets an unhealthy amount of sleep, and 51% of people are dissatisfied with their sleep.
Sleep is one of the most critical functions of the brain, and our deep understanding of the neuroscience of sleep uniquely positions us to help solve the sleep health epidemic.
As an early stage startup we have a lot to offer, but we recognize that we might not be a perfect fit for everyone.
You'll fit in well at StimScience if...
You love to learn. We encourage everyone on the team to stretch beyond their roles and develop skills in new areas, and we provide everyone with visibility into all aspects of our science and our business.
You are a challenge-seeker. Not only are we creating new-to-the-world consumer devices and services, we are inventing a fundamentally new way of interacting with the brain. While we are not cavalier about the risks, we are motivated by the level of difficulty inherent in our business.
You are passionate about how neuroscience can improve people’s lives. Our team has founded successful neuroscience companies and includes truly world-class brain researchers. You don’t need to be a neuroscientist to fit in here, but you should find it interesting.
You might not be a great fit if...
You crave structure. We are a small team with tons to figure out. We’ll offer you plenty of mentorship and collaboration, but you’ll need to set your own direction.
You believe in ‘fake it til you make it’. We definitely have a bias for action, but we also recognize the responsibility that comes with products that customers rely on every day. That means we make extra sure the science is sound and the product is worthy of customer trust before we ship.
