Neuralink is developing ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers. We are building a team of multidisciplinary experts passionate about making a world-changing impact. Neuralink is an interdisciplinary team of exceptionally talented people.
We are creating the future of brain interfaces: building devices now that will help people with paralysis and inventing new technologies that will expand our abilities and accessibility to our community and our world.
Developing neural interfaces is an interdisciplinary challenge. We are looking to hire a wide range of people with diverse engineering, scientific, and operations expertise. Help us build our neural network to expand and grow. No prior experience in neuroscience is necessary we will teach you everything you need to know.
Implant: The implant team is responsible for the entirety of the neural implant, from sensing the signals emanating from the neurons in your brain all the way to transmitting that data wirelessly to a smart device. Doing this in a way that’s biocompatible, lasts for many years, and can sit invisibly inside the head is no small task and requires an interdisciplinary effort from the microfabrication of electrodes, custom chip design, hermetic packaging, wireless power and data transfer, and firmware development.
Robotics: The robotics team is responsible for implanting the neural implant in our patients. A robot is two fold necessary for this: first, the threads are smaller than a human hair and cannot be grasped, manipulated, and accurately inserted by a human surgeon. Doing this requires micron precision for the grasp, tens of microns of precision for localizing and tracking the moving brain during insertion, and high speed in order to get hundreds of threads in quickly. Second, scaling to hundreds of thousands then millions of patients means that not only must the thread insertion be automated but also the planning and execution of the rest of the surgery. Without doing so, the supply of neurosurgeons quickly runs out. Executing on both of these requires novel sensing, kinematics, computer vision, precision mechanical and electrical design, optics, and really everything to do with the design, control, and use of safety critical high precision mechatronics systems.
Neuralink’s culture is one of constant learning, adaptation, and growth – we prioritize feedback and transparency. We bring together world renowned experts in disciplines spanning Neuroscience, Robotics, Chip Design, and everything in between. Neuralink’s incredible group of individuals is greater than the sum of its parts as we’ve built a collaborative, yet self-sufficient and motivating environment enabling us to push each other to move further and faster. By standing on the shoulders of giants, and sometimes leaning on each others’, we are turning science fiction into reality.
At Neuralink we value talented and mission-driven individuals who are passionate about making a positive impact through the development of high-bandwidth brain-machine interfaces. We celebrate the differences that employees from all backgrounds bring and recognize the strength that different perspectives add to our creative problem solving. Insisting on equitable practices isn’t only right, it also helps us go further by enabling each employee to realize their full potential. We take a holistic approach to diversity, focusing on all aspects of Neuralink from the moment a potential applicant hears our name to the everyday experience of each of our employees. Our diversity efforts include:
Diversity at Neuralink is an employee-driven effort that engages the company as a whole. Our diversity initiatives stretch beyond solving problems as we strive to create a welcoming and truly unique work environment.
