About the Job

We provide our APIs and SDKs to researchers and developers building better healthcare solutions, digital assistants, communication tools, and more. As part of our mission, we conduct groundbreaking scientific research, publish in leading scientific journals like Nature, and support a non-profit, The Hume Initiative, that has released the first concrete ethical guidelines for empathic AI ( You can learn more about us on our website ( and read about us in The Washington Post
