follow, not because they have to the meet regulations, but because
they can see the inherent benefit?
We need you. We have the ambitious goal of taking multiple

are at it, we should take a handful of very complex high-end

Please note this job description is not designed to cover or
contain a comprehensive listing of activities, duties or
responsibilities that are required of the employee for this job. We
are a team. We pitch in and help each other on all projects. If you
are "above" doing certain tasks, Ripple is definitely not a good
fit for you.

About RippleRipple creates life enhancing neurotechnology for
research and medical applications. Our products integrate
cutting-edge hardware and software elements designed to read and
write from the human nervous system. We are funded by our sales
revenue and grants from NIH, DARPA, and the Congressionally
Directed Medical Research Program (*sigh* that was a mouthful.)
At its core, Ripple is a community of driven people who are
choosing to work together on really hard problems. We are builders
and creators and want to see our efforts impact the world for good.
Those who thrive at Ripple are self-motivated and work well
independently. There are times of intense effort and individual
contribution and sacrifice, but we know that what we are building
will take time, and living a fulfilling life outside of Ripple will
keep team members deeply engaged.
Ripplers are given high-level tasks and a bit of context. Then,
they are expected to seek out information, standards, develop new
skills and design something great with a team of similarly
dedicated and driven colleagues.
At Ripple, team members are often asked to do things they have
never done before. We expect a lot of chances to hear differing
opinions, and to be surrounded by people who deeply care about our
projects and are interested in the big picture of what Ripple is
trying to accomplish. Ripplers are encouraged to take time to help
and teach others, and to listen, learn and change their own views
until a solution emerges.
We expect great ideas to come from everyone at Ripple. We are
passionate and friendly, patient and thoughtful, and all agree to
not work with jackasses (no matter how great you think you are).
All of us must actively contribute to the quality of our processes
and products through thoughtful effort. There is no shortcut to
making implantable medical devices or cutting-edge neuroscience
tools, but with a strong team of friends building them together, it
is worth it.
What do you think?Are you into it? Does this job posting make you
warm and fuzzy inside? Are you already on our website checking out
our products to see what you can do to make them even better?
Then what are you waiting for? Send your resume on over to with a
cover letter explaining your interest in this position, and in
working for Ripple.
We are excited to hear from you!
