Being safe should be simple. And it is for more than 3 million people, thanks to SimpliSafe. Over the last decade, weve transformed home security from an outdated, intimidating industry to something smart, radically approachable and impeccably engineered. Weve taken on the entrenched industry giants, and were winning. CNET named SimpliSafe their Editors Choice. And PC Magazine awarded us both Editors Choice and Readers Choice.

Even as the fastest-growing security company in the country, we retain our small-company ethos: no-ego, hard-working collaborative teams tackling complex projects head-on. We strive to create an inspiring and innovative workplace, and it hasnt gone unnoticed. SimpliSafe recently landed on both Built In Bostons Best Places to Work in 2019 and Wealthfronts 2019 Career Launching Companies lists.
