At Actuate, we make the world safer by turning any sensor into a smart sensor for tactical and security applications.

We help public sector and private organizations manage the transition from traditional human-focused force protection to smart AI-powered security.

Our software-only AI analyzes data from existing sensors, such as security cameras, in real-time to detect threats such as military vehicles, weapons, intruders, crowds, and where people travel in any environment. The system can be deployed on any platform, ranging from cloud services to vehicle- or soldier-borne devices, and can utilize virtual any sensor to produce real-time tactical data. The system acts as an end-to-end threat management system that enables onboarding and management of cameras as well as instant alerts and analytics that allow organizations to pinpoint problems in real time.

We're looking for a Federal Business Development Manager to design, build, and run business programs with a focus on pursuing, winning, and managing government contracts with the goal of driving revenue and business growth. This is not an inside operations role, but is instead a key business growth role: The BD Manager will own stakeholder communications, program design, and budgets to drive business in areas that they think are high-opportunity. As such, the ideal candidate will be skilled in strategic thinking, program design, customer relationship management, and system design.

We're a post-Series A startup backed by top NYC- and SF-based investors, and we're growing fast. If you want to help build a company from the ground up and make the world a safer place--without invading privacy--we'd love to hear from you.
