- Propose a new way to improve our product for our customers in commercial inspections, law enforcement, and defense -- and then go make it

What We’re Looking For
You should be capable of solving extremely challenging problems at least twice as fast as your peers. We are mildly interested in your education, experience, and previous employers. We are exceptionally interested in your portfolio of projects demonstrating initiative and passion for topics areas relevant to Vantage. These projects should show your ability to push technical limits to achieve extraordinary results with limited time and budget. We will also be interested in your ability to contribute to a culture of passion for excellence, taking bold risks, accepting failure, and improvising as needed until the project is wildly successful. Please make sure to include anything you believe is relevant to this in your initial contact.
