SyncThink Technical Lead


About SyncThink

Join a healthcare startup that is transforming the way medical professionals assess concussion and monitor ongoing brain performance.

SyncThink provides a fast (60 second), objective assessment that is critical to brain health and performance. Our technology characterizes an individual’s visual orientation – a critical brain function for attention and safety. EYE-SYNC has been validated over the past 10 years in 23 peer-reviewed publications; 12 granted patents; FDA clearance; and on the field and clinics of elite institutions like Stanford, Walter Reed, Texas, Notre Dame, and Mass General Hospital.


The technical lead will architect, implement, and manage SyncThink technology across the EYE-SYNC mobile platform – VR, Android, and cloud. They will manage a small, growing engineering team: personally implement key platform services; mentor less experienced team members; and set a high bar for quality and maintainability. A successful lead provides reliable deliveries; offers creative, candid advice; and avoids security and performance issues through experience. The EYE-SYNC technical lead will report to SyncThink’s CTO.

In return, SyncThink will provide access to industry-leading eye tracking and virtual reality; a rock-solid mobile and cloud architecture; a talented, dedicated team; and a meaningful pursuit in brain health.
