Once you join our talent pool and fill in our 20 - 30 minute application, we’ll find you ideal career opportunities where your brain and heart can thrive.

A human-centered design approach.

Based on our research initiated at Georgia Tech, the team has learned what data is instrumental to making or breaking a good job fit. We have spent over 2 years understanding the autism community to intimately understand pain points and success factors in a job position. Today, we are working with employers to examine and address barriers in the employment process.

Mentra's four profile areas ensure a successful fit.
