Who We Are

Evolv Technology has developed the first truly frictionless weapons screening system using advanced sensors to power an AI algorithm. We have screened more than 25 million people to date, preventing visitors from bringing more than 5,000 weapons into public venues and places of work worldwide. Organizations such as Lincoln Center, Oakland Airport, Gillette Stadium, and LL Bean use Evolv’s free-flow weapons detection systems to prevent active shooters and terrorists from entering their venues. By fusing the latest sensors and Cortex AI, Evolv delivers the only weapons detection system smart enough to screen thousands of people per hour without the need to stop and empty pockets or remove bags. Evolv eliminates the need to choose between safety and convenience, reducing the burden on security teams and taking the hassle out of people-screening at places of work, schools, transportation hubs, sports stadiums, entertainment venues, hotels and conference centers, airports, houses of worship, and government agencies.

Evolv is backed by world class investors and advisors including Bill Gates, General Catalyst Partners, Data Collective, Lux Capital, SineWave Ventures, Finback Investment Partners, and former leaders from national security and counter-terrorism agencies. We are recruiting leaders in sales, marketing, product, customer success, and engineering.

 

What we seek

Evolv is looking for an Electrical Engineer to help us develop innovative system architectures and hardware subsystems for our security products that are designed for both indoor and outdoor use. This position reports to our Hardware Engineering Director. The ideal candidate has previous experience developing hardware/embedded communication systems involving wireless, radio, security, and networking technologies. In this role, you will work independently on embedded hardware architectures on all phases of design, including specification, schematic capture, PBC layout, board bring-up, DVT, and product compliance (FCC emissions, FCC radio regulatory, safety, UL, and environmental). You will support the manufacturing life cycle for new products from NPI, ECO progression and management to successful product launch and volume production.

 

What you bring

You have a BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering and at least seven years of hardware development experience involving board-level design (analog, digital, RF, and PCB), mixed-signal design, radio systems design, CPU/DSP design, FPGA design, and hardware product compliance. You have extensive experience working on small, fast-paced teams in an agile environment. Start-up experience is a strong plus. In addition, you can demonstrate the following:

  • Experience in FPGA development, including VHDL/Verilog design, simulation, synthesis, and verification
  • Signal integrity analysis and simulation experience is a strong plus
  • Ability to troubleshoot designs in a mixed-signal system
  • Experience with RF font-end design, PHY layer, high-speed communication interfaces and modules (USB, ethernet, Wi-Fi, LTE, etc.) and leading processors (Embedded CORE, ARM, MIPS, GPU), preferably for radio-based communication projects
  • Proven track record of designing and delivering products from conceptual stages to production delivery. Minimum of three products successfully delivered to the market.
  • Hands-on test/debug experience in an engineering lab environment with PC tools, scopes, and logic/spectrum/LAN analyzers, as well as support lab activities such as assembly, debug lab management, and component purchases

An Insider's view of Evolv Technology

Stephanie

Vice President, Sales

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Nearing a new product launch, we are analyzing and synchronizing sensor data acquired from our custom DAS hardware, sending it to our algorithms in real-time through multi-threaded C++ code, and tuning to maximize performance. Our HW+SW engineers work together closely, making dynamic, gratifying improvements prior to locking down the designs.

Lorena

Director of Machine Vision

What does career growth look like on your team?

My team is focused on understanding our personal strengths, ensuring that our daily tasks make us feel accomplished and rejuvenated instead of diminished. Once we've identified our strengths we work to create development plans to define a clear path for skill set and leadership development. Continuous and timely feedback ensures we stay on track.

Sean

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We have assembled a group of people from many disciplines. Each one has experienced the pain of a security checkpoint. All of them have great ideas on how to change it. I try to put a unique group of people together, focused on the customer, and let them do their thing. Their thing is truly amazing.

Anil

What makes someone successful on your team?

Our team is warm, fast and free. Each of us is functionally independent but fully supportive of the others. We are proud of our work and we love to share. We click together because each of us is great at some things and not bad at anything. We have enough ego to spice things up but not enough to get in the way. Together, we love what we do.
