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.

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
