We are looking for a Full Stack software engineer to help us create the best video surveillance tools in the retail industry. Web applications that stream video pose unique problems most engineers have never dealt with before, so we're looking for someone like you who has front and back end web development experience, and who is interested in learning how to solve new problems.

Our asset protection and corporate security teams use cameras to keep our teams in stores, distribution centers, and HQ locations safe. We are building a suite of tools to help our team be more efficient in preventing safety and theft incidents by giving them data driven leads without bias. We want you to be a part of this journey.

  • Canary and A/B testing to push code multiple times a day during business hours
