Beacon Biosignals is seeking an Algorithms Engineer to build out the world of EEG features that guide neurobiomarker discovery and accelerate novel therapies for neurological and psychiatric disease.

As an Algorithms Engineer, you'll work directly with neuroscientists and engineers to...

  • ...implement both online and offline approaches to processing vast quantities of EEG signals, via a combination of traditional DSP and ML-based approaches.
  • model development, anomaly detection, and other ongoing high-impact research, through short-term prototyping efforts and long-term maintainable libraries.
  • ...accomplish positively impactful solutions to real-world problems alongside a knowledgeable, supportive, and kind team.

At Beacon, we believe a diverse team builds more robust systems and achieves higher impact. We encourage people from all backgrounds to apply!

About You
  • You have demonstrable experience writing maintainable signal processing code, ideally in a production setting (e.g., industry, open-source projects, etc).
  • You think about and proactively communicate the implications of implementation choices to downstream consumers.
  • You're familiar with DSP gotchas---you've seen some horrors (and written some horrors!) and you know how to look out for sharp edges.
  • You're proactive about engineering best practices, and write tests to protect your team and future self from making the same mistakes as your current self.

This is not an entry-level position, but is otherwise intentionally open-ended in terms of required years of experience and title.

Not sure if you meet 100% of our qualifications? There are numerous reports that systemically marginalized people (e.g. women) are less likely to apply for a job, but are more likely to be hired if they do apply. If you think you could thrive in this role, we encourage you to apply even if not every bullet perfectly describes you.

An Insider's view of Beacon Biosignals

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Everyone is valued for their strengths and their contributions. Our team is supportive and celebrates individual and team wins.


Program Manager

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

As we're implementing academic research at scale, we deal with both the domain complexities of generalizing our models and the typical technical complexities of implementing ML in production. On any given day, my team might be optimizing algorithm speed or might be testing model robustness to EEG data where a lead has fallen off a patient's head.


Senior DSP Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

After just a few months at Beacon, I find myself leading an ambitious project diagnosing pediatric epilepsy. Each week, I get to flex my neuroscience skills, drive algorithm development, and build up my software engineering chops. Best of all, I can see my work make a direct impact on patient care.


Senior Neuroscientist

What is your vision for the company?

Beacon is propelled by the vision of a computing platform designed to scale the interrogation of large brain datasets with unprecedented throughput and capability. We aim to enable predictive analytics that treat and prevent neurological and psychiatric diseases for millions of patients.


Co-founder & CEO

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

To make brain data actionable, we need to make brain science iterative and data engineering self-serviceable. Using Julia, K8s, Arrow and more, we're building a tooling ecosystem that empowers each Beaconeer to perform analyses in an afternoon atop terabytes of data that would take them months in a lab atop gigabytes of data.
