At Density, we build one of the most advanced people sensing systems in the world. Density can tell you how many people are in any room in real-time, with very high degrees of accuracy, and without invading privacy. The result of distributing this platform is lower emissions, less waste, better access, safer buildings, and better designed cities. It is a long term pursuit and one we could use your help achieving.

The Opportunity

Our people counting solution requires sophisticated hardware paired with our analytics platform. This makes our accounting function a bit more complicated than you might find at the average hardware or software company. We source all of our hardware components and assemble our sensors in house, so there's components to purchase, work in process inventory to track, and cost of goods sold to calculate. Having a precise understanding of our margins is critical as we scale. On the software side there's subscription revenue recognition to manage a rapidly growing customer base.

We count over 1 million humans per day. Over the next 18 months, we plan to count 100 million every 24 hours.
