Head of Product at NeuroNav
***San Francisco-based preferred and open to Remote***
NeuroNav is an early-stage venture-backed social enterprise with the aim of improving the quality of life for adults with developmental disabilities. We are building technology to customize and automate dynamic support plans with curated services for our neurodivergent clients.
The company launched out of Stanford in May 2020 with the support of the Stanford Innovation Fellowship. Last year, we supported over 100 neurodivergent adults in accessing life-changing services, raised $4M in a seed round, and we’re on track to quadruple our client base by next year.
If you are interested in changing healthcare to better serve individuals in inclusive and equitable ways, come join us!
If you’re familiar with the developmental disability space, you know just how challenging it is for people with disabilities to find and access support in their community that fits their goals. We aim to change that by combining technology with human kindness and human capital. We’re hiring changemakers in this space who are committed to helping the disabled community find a sense of belonging anywhere with any goal. Learn more about our mission of inclusion here.
