Ever dreamt of working with Elon Musk? Well, perhaps you can.

Some have declared Elon Musk the real-life Tony Stark, and while that sounds like a wild exaggeration, there’s no endgame in sight for this larger than life entrepreneur. 

He’s an investor, engineer and technology mogul, but foremostly, you may know him as the founder, CEO, and lead designer of SpaceX; then, there’s also his immense role in Tesla, Inc. The man is involved in so many enterprises, and it’s no surprise that he was declared number twenty-one in Forbes’ list of The World’s Most Powerful People a few years back. 

Needless to say, he’s one of the richest people on the planet, with an unbelievable amount of influence. Recently, the billionaire has made headlines with his latest unveiling courtesy of Neuralink, an American company which Musk founded back in 2016. So, what’s all the fuss about? 

BRAZIL – 2019

What is Neuralink?

Well, what isn’t it about? That’s perhaps the more fitting question. 

The Neuralink Corporation is a neurotechnology company which develops implantable brain–machine interfaces (BMIs). Things got started at Neuralink’s headquarters in San Francisco in 2016, but it was unveiled to the public a year later. 

The company has recruited a wide range of exceptional talents; the best in their respective fields, to help further explore the incredible possibilities of the relationship between humans and AI. As reported by Forbes, Musk has declared that Neuralink aims to craft a scalable implant which connects human brains with computers.

Interestingly, it’s been announced that they have already implanted chips in rats; they are approaching plans to test this technology with the human brain in the future. All of this work contributes to the overarching aim of the company, which is to successfully connect us all with artificial intelligence in ways that would benefit us greatly. 

Neuralink: Opportunities

Interested in being a part of it all? Well, you can do just that, but it isn’t exactly easy. 

As they highlight, “Neuralink is developing ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers. We are building a team of multidisciplinary experts passionate about making a world-changing impact.”

There are a number of positions open at Neuralink; however, they want the best, and to say you’d have to know your stuff would be a bit of an understatement. Nevertheless, if you feel up to the challenge, here are the positions you can go for right now:

When will we see the results?

If you see something there which strikes your interest, then why not aim high and go for it!

As Neuralink highlights, they are offering people “An opportunity to change the world and work with some of the smartest and the most talented experts from different fields.” That’s simply too good an opportunity to pass up, especially considering the wide slate of roles available. 

For those who are simply interested in the future of the company though, it’s worth asking when we’ll begin to see the results of their incredible work. Forbes has said that “Despite the improvements to machine interfaces that the company was touting… Musk warned the crowd that many of the advancements he’s talking about are years or decades away.” So, we’ll just have to remain patient.
