ABOUT SONAR

Sonar (website) is a mission-driven startup founded out of Stanford that is making mental health support more preventative and accessible. Our app uses AI to i) identify mental health challenges by analyzing social media and phone activity, ii) provide real-time support to students via chat (with no wait times!), and iii) help with navigation to resources or care.

We raised our first funding round from venture firms such as Lightspeed, 500 Global, Peterson, and Alpine, along with several notable angel investors. We now support thousands of students across the United States.

This is an opportunity to lead the development of our data infrastructure and enable insights in various parts of the business.
