Front End Web UI / UX Developer

Company Description

At ESCRYPT, we believe that security and privacy are important, no matter the size of the device.  We are passionate about bringing safety and peace of mind to an increasingly connected and data-driven world.  We use our breadth and depth of experience and our combined abilities to give our customers the edge they need against ever evolving threats.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is exploding. Everything is connected — watches, thermostats, cars, door locks, even light bulbs.  You name it. Ever wonder how those devices and their data are protected? We do. Our technology is helping keep your data safe and out of the wrong hands.  From the smallest microcontrollers to cloud-based infrastructure, we are building software that lets our customers sleep well at night. From the US Department of Transportation to innovative local startups, our customers are doing some exciting things and we want to help them reach their goals without sacrificing security.

Interested in helping cars start talking to each other for collision avoidance?  Does the thought of building tools to secure communications between millions of devices excite you?  Do you want to make the world a better place? Then you might be a good fit for our team. We are out to make a difference and have fun doing it.  Our dynamic team tackles challenging problems in an open and collaborative environment. We are always learning new things and pushing the boundaries of what is possible.  We are active participants in our community including many local technology groups and local charities. We love what we do and we love where we work.
