The Company

FL105 is a privately held, early-stage company pioneering the use of artificial intelligence to transform mental health paradigms and fundamentally augment mental wellbeing. We are creating a world where individuals and communities are empowered to preemptively identify and tackle psychological challenges and address mental health concerns.

Flagship has created over 100 groundbreaking companies since 2000, including Moderna.

The Role

We are seeking an experienced, creative, and talented Psychologist (PsyD/PhD).

  • Provide insights to ensure platform is aligned with state-of-the-art knowledge.

Successful candidates will be able to thrive in a fast-paced, action-oriented, team environment and display a clear passion for innovation and impact. The role offers a unique opportunity to help drive the strategy of an early-stage AI-focused company. The candidate must be an entrepreneurial, highly motivated, and purpose-driven individual. S(he) must exhibit strong collaboration and communication skills. S(he) should be ready to lead application development in a very dynamic and innovative environment.  


  • PsyD/PhD from an accredited institution, with research focus in personality, cognition, or related areas of study.
  • Strong understanding of psychological theories, therapeutic interventions, and mental health diagnostics.
  • Experience with designing and conducting empirical studies using real-world evidence.
  • Excellent communication and teamwork skills.
