Why Us?

Started by Harvard & MIT trained PhDs, pymetrics ( is applying neuroscience assessment and data science to the world of career search. We replace questionnaires with neuroscience tasks and classical statistics with data science to ideally match people with jobs and companies. It is currently used by undergraduates + MBA students and consulting, finance + technology clients across the US. Bootstrapped by revenue, we recently raised $2.5M from a top tier VC firm to expand the team + product. We are looking for engineers, data scientists, and marketers to build out cutting-edge web applications and services using the best available technologies and practices.

We're building practical uses for new discoveries in neuroscience and bringing them to a large audience. This is a unique opportunity to join an early-stage team with a world-class team of scientists from top research institutions which has already found initial market fit (as demonstrated by customers and revenue) and raised sufficient seed capital to allow us to further develop our product and scale the business.
