About Brain Power

Brain Power, LLC, is a mission-based neuroscience tech startup headquartered in Cambridge, MA, with strong ties to MIT, Harvard, and Stanford. We make gamified, AI-based wearable systems to help assess and coach people with brain-related challenges. 

Our flagship product suite, for Autism, includes apps that help children (or adults) learn what other people are feeling; deliver videogame-like coaching on face-directed gaze; tutor reading and conversation skills; help users reduce repetitive motor behaviors and underlying stress; give teachers and parents numerical progress reports; and much more. We have successful customers living in 10 countries, and in schools in the US. 

Our systems run on smartglasses such as Google Glass or competing headsets from Epson, Intel, and others. (Note: Google (X) recently released the third version of Glass. Brain Power is one of their few partners (listed here), allowing us to resell the device and access many resources specially for partners.)

We also have developed apps that address needs related to traumatic brain injury, job (re-)training, job coaching, eldercare, and objective measurement of behavior in support of clinical trials. Our overall aim, that binds these together, is to unlock the potential of the challenged brain. We are a truly and deeply mission-focused company.  

If you are are passionate, sharp, and have the skills and aptitude we need, there is a place for you at Brain Power!

    Sales and Marketing

    Sales Account Manager

    Brain Power provides a breakthrough educational technology solution that enables middle school and high school students with autism and ADHD to better succeed in school and in life. We are making the transition from being focused on product development to becoming a product company. We have spent the last half year or more selling to visionary, early adopter beachhead customers in a disciplined way. In the process we have been able to achieve some early customer success. We have defined the benefits, quantified the value proposition, and we now pretty well understand the Decision-Making JURY.

    As we see it, the buying process is driven by the school Superintendent or the person she/he designates. The JURY is typically composed of:

    • The Superintendent / designee
    • The Director of Special Education or Student Services
    • The Principal of a school for the first pilot
    • The Director of Instructional Technology
    • One or more champion Teacher

    Sales Account Manager candidates will be pleased to know that we already have in place a dream team of Customer Success professionals, and a reasonably well documented and annotated Sales Pipeline. We have one full time experienced Product Manager, helped by additional marketing support staff who drive the marketing processes, including organizing events and speaking engagements, as well as writing success stories and white papers.

    We are now carefully recruiting a small focused sales team of experienced, missionary Sales Account Managers to bring in new business and lead our go-to-market initiative as the first two sales hires. Candidates must have several years of experience successfully selling novel solutions to our jury before. Our target focus for the remainder of 2019 is Massachusetts, so preference will be given to Sales candidates who know our initial territory.

    Candidates who have sold to the Jury outside New England will definitely be considered, and we already have some delighted customers in Connecticut, Texas, and beyond.

    This is a unique opportunity for a proven missionary Sales Account Manager to leverage your network in the American K-12 education or special education fields. You will design and execute our sales strategy in the months and years ahead, while further refining a repeatable sales process. You will report to the CEO, Dr. Ned Sahin, and work closely with prospects and customers to deeply understand their needs and provide input into the Brain Power product/service strategy and marketing process.
