WALTHAM, Mass. (PRWEB) January 14, 2020
Evolv Technology, the leader in free-flow weapons detection, today announced it was awarded a spot on Built In Boston’s Best Small Companies to Work for List in 2020. Companies are selected based on data submitted by companies and their employees.
Best Places to Work rates companies based on compensation and employer benefits, both weighed equally. For compensation, Built In looks at the median percentile for all salaries and compares that to the rest of the company’s database. Benefits include: health and wellness; financial planning and stability; flexible work environment; diversity and culture; professional and social impact; and perks and discounts.
The recognition comes on the heels of Evolv announcing $30M in funding last week to scale operations. The company plans to add staff at its headquarters in Waltham, as well as expand its presence globally in major regions around the world, including the U.S., EMEA and Asia Pacific, with particular emphasis on sales, customer success and engineering.
“We are doing some truly incredible things here at Evolv,” said Peter George, CEO at Evolv. “Our mission is to make the world a safer place for people to gather and we couldn’t achieve the level of success we’ve experienced over the last several years without our extraordinarily talented and dedicated employees. We’re absolutely thrilled to make Built In Boston’s Best Small Companies to Work for List in 2020 as it’s a testament that we’re providing a workplace that values its employees and supports them in their daily lives and career growth.”
Evolv is dedicated to helping protect innocent people from mass shootings, terrorist attacks and similar violent acts. The company’s AI-based, free-flow weapons-screening and threat detection systems work at the pace of life to accommodate thousands of individuals and groups per hour – screening 50 million people to date in a rapid, undisruptive manner while preventing more than 5,000 weapons from entering a range of public and private facilities. Evolv is used for visitor and employee screening at top entertainment venues, schools, international airports, stadiums, corporations, hospitals, large-scale events and national landmarks worldwide. Customers include Gillette Stadium, L.L. Bean, Oakland International Airport, Spartanburg School District Six in South Carolina and many others across the globe.
“We extend our heartfelt congratulations to our 2020 honorees. Built In aims to change lives by connecting talented tech professionals with jobs they were born to do,” Maria Christopoulos Katris, CEO and co-founder at Built In. “These companies have become part of that mission because they stand for more than just the work they’re doing.

Hear what Evolv employees have to say about the company:
“I first came to Evolv because it had the two most important things I wanted in my career: an employer I could trust, and an interesting technical challenge to solve. Once I got here, I realized that it also had something I didn’t even know I’d been looking for: a mission worth doing. The work we do here protects real people and saves real lives, and I feel lucky every day that I get to be a part of it. So many engineers get stuck designing cheap gadgets or making a slightly better cellphone; it makes me feel incredibly lucky to be doing something that matters to me.”— Peter Lorenz
