Work Type: Full Time

Ambush is a People Company. But what does that mean exactly? It means we care about our people as much as we care about building great products. We take a human-centered approach to identifying, retaining, and integrating highly-talented, long-term remote people into America’s best product and development team. 


We began our consulting journey in 2015 and have been growing ever since! We do that by delivering the best quality work possible for our clients. We are not afraid to take risks and we always seek the best possible path to solve a problem, instead of just a quick makeshift solution.

We are passionate about what we do every day and we can always count on our team to have our backs. Teamwork is one of our core values! We don’t go anywhere by ourselves. We are driven to achieve great things. And we are extremely helpful to everyone. We expect you to be a team player. 

Our interdisciplinary team of engineers makes use of what’s best in the technology world - combining hardware, firmware, backend, frontend, machine learning, and mobile development - to provide exceptional surveillance solutions to our clients. Our systems process and aggregate information from various wireless sensors (IoT) in near-real-time in order to produce a final verdict (also known as “sensor fusion”) and, if necessary, deter intruders and alert our customers about any unexpected activity.
