RapidSOS is an award-winning emergency technology company that builds transformative technology to save lives. Partnering with Internet of Things (IoT) companies and the public safety community, RapidSOS provides a proprietary rich data link to public safety – sending lifesaving data to aid in emergency response.

By analyzing data around when and where emergencies are occurring, RapidSOS is developing technology to predict and preempt emergencies and dynamically warn people in harm's way – a complete paradigm shift from emergency response to emergency prediction and preemption.

Formed in 2012, it is led by a team from MIT, Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Braemar Energy Ventures, Google, Bell Labs, Amazon, Microsoft, and Oakridge & Argonne National Labs that has experienced 911’s failures firsthand and is personally motivated to solve this enormous challenge.

Mission: After personally witnessing challenges associated with the existing emergency communication infrastructure, our team formed RapidSOS to transform emergency communications. We are dedicated to harnessing cutting-edge technology to improve the outcome of millions of emergencies globally. The RapidSOS team has developed mission critical code at two national labs, developed back-end and mobile products for a multiple tech start-ups, and collectively helped commercialize over 70 technology companies.

We pride ourselves in hiring diverse people who share our passion and purpose. Having a team that shares different identities, passions, perspectives, and cultural backgrounds only furthers our ability to approach the the broad challenges in emergency technology and public safety. As the complexity of our problems increase, so should the diversity of our thinking. Come join us!
