Ours is a no ego culture of collaboration and innovation where those seeking their next challenge can find big opportunities and make a huge impact on the lives of all those who we protect.

Why are we hiring?

Well, we’re growing and thriving. So, we need smart, talented, and humble people who share our values to join us as we disrupt the home security space and relentlessly pursue our mission of keeping Every Home Secure. 

We’re embracing a hybrid work model that enables our teams to split their time between office and home.

We all benefit from flexibility and get to use the best of both worlds to get our work done.
