Elevate Labs is on a mission to improve people's minds.

The ability to write well and speak eloquently deeply affects your trajectory in life, regardless of profession. Unfortunately, many people leave high school and even college extremely unprepared in these areas. We developed our flagship mobile app, Elevate, to help bridge this gap, through 35 games (and more on the way) that teach concrete cognitive skills. Elevate has over 30 million downloads and has received numerous accolades, including Apple’s App of the Year award.

The Elevate app was just the beginning. We’ve recently launched Balance, a personalized meditation app, that helps people with their stress, sleep, focus, and much more. It’s a truly customized experience that makes meditation more accessible to millions of people.

Join us in creating the future of products that help people live healthy, joyful, and productive lives.

We have had a handful of fully remote employees since 2014, but this year we have shifted our focus to more intentionally recruiting and hiring distributed folks. In Q1 2020 four of our five new hires have been remote! We are hoping to hire at least 50% remote for our new headcount this year.
