An Insider's view of Evolv Technology

What are some social events your company does?

In the summer we flew in the team to celebrate and got to see each other in person, some of us for the very first time! We often meet virtually for virtual events like Holiday Parties, Lunch and Learns, Happy Hours, and more!



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 Software

What are some things you learned at the company?

Since joining Evolv, I've learned how important it is to evaluate and adapt as necessary. It can be easy to do things as they've always been done, but to challenge that thinking can be a great opportunity for growth. I'm thankful for company leadership that encourages innovation and improved processes, even if it means rethinking an old habit.

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.
