Mountain View, CA (HQ)
X is a diverse group of inventors and entrepreneurs who build and launch technologies that aim to improve the lives of millions, even billions, of people. Our goal: 10x impact on the world's most intractable problems, not just 10% improvement.
Our mission at X is to invent and launch "moonshot" technologies that aim to make the world a radically better place. We define a moonshot as the intersection of a big problem, a radical solution, and breakthrough technology.
About the team:
You will join the leadership team of a very early stage team exploring how a mix of new fabrics, robotics and AI/ML might help people with mobility challenges and improve quality of life for hundreds of millions of people. The team is multi-disciplinary, bringing together expertise in machine learning, biomechanics, robotics and soft goods. The project will be in a prototyping phase, rapidly iterating and implementing ideas to progressively de-risk the idea from a technical perspective.
About the role:
In this role, you will oversee all technical planning, development, and hiring. You will report to the Project Lead and help define the team’s product, strategy, budget, and culture. The majority of the role will be management but you should excel at and enjoy contributing high-impact hardware designs, code and other engineering as needed. You will regularly collaborate with Google researchers and AI experts to solve hard technical challenges, some of which have never been solved before.
This is an opportunity to leverage Google’s talent, infrastructure, and reach to create a product that could help billions of people.
Given the early stage of this project, there will be significant ambiguity but the opportunity to show considerable impact. This is an extremely dynamic team and requires high cross-functional communication, organization, and planning.
