Who We Are

Our mission is to keep people safe in large shared spaces like schools, stadiums, and streets.  We do that with a predictive cyber-physical incident response platform that provides security operations with early warnings of risks, better information to assess threats, and faster responses through automation using IoT, network and mobile devices. Our software is being developed for some of the largest campuses and public venues around.


"As part of our small agile team, you'll work on things that are new, difficult, meaningful, and a bit crazy. You’ll have an outsized impact on our business and on our customers."

Who You Are

Want to build technology that helps keep people safe? We do. Do you love decentralized approaches to design and machine learning?  We do. Want to create privacy-preserving solutions to large-scale data-rich problems? We do. Think functional programming is a fundamental to modern design? We do. Want to work on reactive and actor-based systems, and with technology like Spark, Akka, Lagom, Kafka, Cassandra and React?  We do. Want to be part of our mission-focused early-stage team breaking new ground? Join us.


We have opportunities across several engineering areas:

Mobile - Help us develop safety, intelligence and notification apps on iOS and Android.  You should have experience with app development ecosystems, frameworks like React Native and languages likes Swift, Kotlin and Scala.

Analytics - Help us develop video analysis that tracks people and objects across a variety of spaces and conditions.  You should have experience with neural networks and other machine learning approaches, be familiar with common tools and libraries and how to deploy and scale in production.

DevOps - Help us build, automate and manage our hybrid production SaaS system, and development and services infrastructure.  You should be familiar with common cloud technology stacks on AWS and Azure, and tools like Ansible and Kubernetes.

Why Us

As part of our small agilish team, you'll work on things that are new, difficult, meaningful, and a bit crazy. You’ll have an outsized impact on our business and on our customers.  Sure, you'll research, discuss, learn, share, design, code, deploy, and support what we do… but your contribution will be as much in the gaps as in the things we know we must do.

We want you to figure out the right thing to do, and then empower you to do the right thing; all in a fast paced, loosely structured, high-responsibility/high-reward and supportive environment.  We're an equal opportunity employer and committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace that represents a diversity of perspectives, ideas and cultures.

Where We Are

Our team is centrally located in Boston's Liberty Square near all T and commuter rail lines as well as everything the heart of Boston has to offer: fun, culture, arts, food, the waterfront and greenway.  We work together in an open space, but with plenty of break-out and quiet areas to fit our needs and moods.
