Pear VC · Full-Stack Software Engineer


Our mission is to improve the quality of life for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities(IDD) like autism or cerebral palsy. If you’re familiar with the space, you know just how challenging it is for people with disabilities to find and access support in their community that fits their goals. We aim to change that by combining technology with human kindness and human capital. We’re hiring change-makers in this space who are committed to helping the disabled community find a sense of belonging anywhere with any goal.

We are a startup founded out of Stanford University and backed by Pear VC, the same investors behind DoorDash, Gusto and Heap!

At NeuroNav, we are deeply committed to building a workplace where inclusion is not only valued, but prioritized. It is important to us that you bring your authentic self to work every single day, no matter your race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, family status, marital status, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, neurodiversity, disability, age, or veteran status, or any other non-merit based or legally protected grounds. Inclusion isn’t just an initiative at NeuroNav, it is central to our mission and culture.

We highly encourage all diverse applicants to apply, particularly neurodivergent candidates. We hire neurodiverse talent, amplify neurodiverse voices, and design products with neurodiverse input.

Today, our Product and Engineering team consists of our Technical Lead and our Senior Product Manager. This role will report to the Technical Lead but we operate as a largely flat structure in our product and engineering team. We’re highly experimental and collaborative. Most of our efforts have been focused on customer discovery and prototyping as we figure out the best way to leverage software to achieve our company’s mission and complement the human-centered advocacy work of our navigator team. As a founding member of the engineering team at NeuroNav, you will have the opportunity to design and build products that help us to extend, deepen, and improve this life-changing work. If you are excited about the challenge of building from scratch (or near scratch) and want to work for a company that is truly mission driven, come join us.

Interview Process*

We want to get to know you and give you an opportunity to get to know us. The following is how we work towards that goal. If you need additional conversations to learn about us, we will make that happen. As with everything we do, we experiment, seek feedback, and adjust.

There will not be additional, live coding exercises in future rounds.

    • Goal: Determine if you have the technical skills for the role.

  • Hiring Manager deep dive (Technical Lead)

    • 45-60 min Discuss your experiences and goals

    • Goal: Determine if it is a good fit and go on to technical assessment

  • Interview Loop - 3 interviews: 30-45 minute engineering interview, 30-45 minute Behavioral Interview & 30-45 minute interview with CEO

    • 30-45 minute behavioral interview

      • You will talk with another member of our team, most likely our Product Manager during the behavioral interview. We will assess your soft skills and this will give you a chance to learn more about the culture of NeuroNav
    • 30-45 minute interview with CEO and Founder

      • The final interview is with our CEO and founder, Kim Schreiber. It will be another discussion to assess whether you and NeuroNav are a good match. You will also be able to learn more about NeuroNav, our long-term strategy, and how the unique culture of NeuroNav was created and has been continually strengthened since it’s beginning.

      • Goal: Determine if you can effectively work cross-functionally and are a good fit for the company.

    • 30 minute Interview the interviewer with Technical Lead (Optional but recommended)

      • This is an opportunity for you to ask more questions about the role. Deciding on the next step of your career is a big decision and we have this built into our process to ensure you have the opportunity to have a focused session around your questions.
