Ellipsis Health is revolutionizing the way behavioral health is assessed and managed. We've pioneered the only clinically validated vital sign for mental health and offer a real-time platform powered by patented machine-learning algorithms to assess and monitor anxiety and depression. Ellipsis Health was founded with the belief that our mental health should have the same priority as our physical health. We saw an opportunity to connect the dots between the two - giving voice to a new standard of mental health care. Headquartered in Silicon Valley, we are funded and supported by some of the most preeminent venture capital teams such as SJF Ventures, Khosla Ventures, Greycroft, Generator Ventures, Luminous Ventures, SpringTide Ventures, and CityLight Capital.
We are currently looking for an experienced machine learning scientist and engineer with deep expertise in spoken language technologies.   The candidate would join the Ellipsis Health Machine Learning team, to develop models to predict mental health risk level from speech and language.


  • Develop machine learning models for predicting mental health conditions from spoken language

  • Contribute to machine learning architecture design, experimentation, testing, fine-tuning

  • Develop production-level software for machine learning infrastructure (for example data pipelines, testing frameworks, model deployment, etc)

  • Stay up to date on latest machine learning developments to help drive new experiments and solutions
