Nia Therapeutics

Engineer, Implantable Neuromodulation System

Full-Time in Boston, MA - Remote OK

Nia Therapeutics is developing implantable brain stimulation devices to restore memory function after brain injury and degenerative disease. Our technology was developed at the University of Pennsylvania with funding from DARPA and we have demonstrated proof of concept to improve human memory in multiple clinical studies. Our technology has the potential to help patients by improving their memory function, reducing disability and increasing on-the-job performance.


We are looking for a very talented hardware engineer to join our team in building our smart neuromodulation platform for memory restoration. The successful applicant will play a key role in taking company's implantable and wearable medical devices from an early engineering prototype all the way to production. This includes gaining a deep understanding of system requirements and architecture, working with an external engineering team on design transfer, modifying and testing system components, and preparing devices for manufacturing.


  • BS in Engineering; advanced degree desirable
  • Strong data analysis, problem-solving, and troubleshooting skills
  • Able to communicate ideas in a coherent, compelling, and influential way


  • Experience developing engineering prototypes with sensors and microprocessors
  • Experience developing active implantable medical devices, medical device quality systems, standards (e.g. ISO-14708) and risk management activities (e.g. FMEA)
  • Broad circuit design experience including analog, digital, power supply and comms functions
  • FPGA tool flow from RTL design through synthesis, place-and-route, and FPGA bring-up
  • Embedded systems development in VHDL/Verilog and C
  • Setting up and maintaining testing environments for hardware and software systems
  • Understanding of wireless network communications concepts


This position will be based in Boston, MA. Remote work is possible through Summer of 2021.
