Who We Are

Evolv is a venture backed startup developing technology to detect and prevent active shooters and terrorists from attacking places where people gather. Our products have screened more than 10 million people, keeping them safe at stadiums, concert venues, tourist locations, hospitals, workplaces, houses of worship, and airports. Our Physical Intelligence Platform combines unique sensor networks, AI-powered threat recognition, powerful analytics, and cloud connectivity to deliver entrance security at the speed of life.

We are backed by world class investors and advisors including Bill Gates, General Catalyst Partners, Data Collective, Lux Capital, and former leaders from National Security and Counter-Terrorism Agencies. Our customer base has grown rapidly over the past 18 months to include many leading organizations in their respective fields. Having established strong demand for our initial product line, we are now recruiting leaders in sales, marketing, product, customer success, and engineering to scale up the business.

 

What we seek

Evolv is looking for a Manufacturing Engineer to help us introduce new products into manufacturing from engineering. As the interface between the two teams, the manufacturing engineer will play a critical role by devising new solutions to existing manufacturing problems, and by applying working knowledge of product design and assembly to Evolv’s manufacturing processes. The work involves developing assembly work instructions for newly released products, managing customer shipment schedules, and evaluating existing manufacturing processes to identify areas for improvement and cost reduction. Evolv’s manufacturing engineer will solve procurement problems arising from suppliers and will use hands on capability to help prototype solutions to manufacturing problems.

 

What you bring

You have an engineering degree and at least five years of experience in manufacturing electromechanical devices. You have worked for and/or managed a contract manufacturer. You excel at multi-tasking and you have a high attention to detail. You are very organized, with strong analytical and communication skills. Previous experience working in a fast-paced start-up environment is a strong plus. A history of progressive responsibility is also a plus. In addition, you can demonstrate the following:

 

  • Previous work experience using MRP systems
  • Proficiency with Windows operating system and Microsoft Office programs
  • Experience with CAD programming is a plus

 

Why Work at Evolv?

If you want to solve one of the most difficult issues of our time and save lives doing it, you want to work at Evolv. We are passionate, knowing that what we do and how we do it can affect life or death situations for our customers. At Evolv, you will have unparalleled exposure to all aspects of our business, working with a talented team of researchers, engineers, manufacturing and operations executives, and product managers who share our vision for a safer world. Equity is an important component of every compensation package. We offer a flexible work environment, a unique culture, and competitive benefits: medical and dental insurance, a 401(k) plan, and an unlimited vacation policy.

This is an opportunity for you to build a world class product portfolio and make a real difference in the world. Come join us today!

An Insider's view of Evolv Technology

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Evolv's vibe blends high energy, intensity, and friendly banter. You’ll see lively discussion in the couch area, visitors touring our lab, or engineers excitedly recruiting colleagues to test out a new Edge feature. Our collaboration area is the "soul" of Evolv -- we gather to dig into complex issues, grab lunch, hold standups, or host happy hour.

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

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

President

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.
