A startup I am advising in Boston is in this year’s MassChallenge accelerator program and looking for a developer to work mainly on their iOS app. The company is AutismSees, and the description of the job is below. If interested please respond to: autismsees@gmail.com

We are looking to hire a coder who is proficient in iOS as well as web development. (Java, HTML, CSS)


Is an app that allows practice of an interview or one on one conversation with real-time feedback and a score on the practice session based on voice recognition, eye / facial tracking software. Data and analytics are given to Autism Research on social and communication interactions. The app rewards users for practicing, and for increasing eye contact and successful body language during practice. Ability to export scored video interview to therapist, coach, mentor, or future employer.

Our mission is to enhance the social and occupational functioning of teens and young adults with technology that allows users to practice speaking, interviewing, and presenting to an audience.

We are entering Mass Challenge in Boston 2015 and also received the Ozy Genius Award for our development of the app this summer.

This person would ideally be someone who could integrate to our team and work alongside me as an Independent Service Provider (contracted basis) for equity in the company if we choose to hire them for the team at close of the summer.

The project is to develop an iOS app with integrated facial and eye tracking software (already in place from Visage in our product) based on designs our team is building. The app will allow users to stream questions from our Podium interface live on-screen of the application, with a start and stop time for each question. The user can select an audience on-screen to practice speaking to and receive feedback (in-app) based on the results of their speech timing, and the Visage Software.

The developer would need to work well with a team and with our Advisor for Technology Development at Tufts. He or She also needs to have a creative vision and passion for helping others – a desire to code something to help students around the world improve social and communication skills.
