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.


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.


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.


Global Services Manager

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.



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.
