Cognito is a venture backed (Morningside Ventures) startup company translating scientific findings from MIT into therapeutic approaches for Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative conditions.   We are a fast moving, highly motivated team of people with the ambitious goal of helping the millions of Alzheimer’s disease patients and care partners around the world.   With our patented gamma stimulation technology, we are committed to developing non-invasive device-based therapies.  Developing this unique platform requires expertise across a range of fields - including Engineering, Software Engineering, Regulatory, Clinical, Product Design, Data Science, QA, Business Development, and Marketing, just to name a few.  We are looking to grow our world-class team of scientists and medical device innovators who want to make a difference and improve people’s lives on an everyday basis.

Summary of Role
