Location: Bay Area, CA
Position: Full time
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.
We are looking for a program manager to manage our first public beta, and to eventually manage the product development and launch of our first production consumer device. This position will be at the center of the action for our most important strategic initiatives. You’ll have an opportunity to play a major role in the launch of a highly innovative product, which if successful, will have a major impact on public health. The role will be inherently multi-disciplinary and we’re open to people from a variety of backgrounds: customer-oriented EPMs, highly detailed product managers or PMMs, or chiefs-of-staff interested in high-impact operator roles. We’re also willing to adapt the scope of the role to different experience levels.
This position is “office optional”. You can do this job remotely with infrequent office visits, but if you prefer an office environment, we’ve got a fantastic office and sleep lab in downtown Berkeley.
2+ years of program or product management experience in a consumer technology company.
Consumer product experience - health and wellness devices would be ideal!
Extraordinary organizational skills
Experience working directly with customers and business partners
Ownership - you’ve led the launch of physical products from conception to launch.
Startup experience is desired but not required - we are a small, growing team, and you should be prepared and excited to embrace a lot of change and ambiguity.
Who we look for
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 will 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 a new-to-the-world consumer device and service, 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 peoples’ 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 to improve their health. That means we make extra sure the science is sound and the product is worthy of customer trust before we ship.
