“Brivo constantly finds ways to make me and my team feel valued and valuable to both the company and the access control industry. That sentiment motivates us, ultimately bringing more success to the organization. It’s a win-win for everyone!” — Allie Gold Smith, Manager, Learning & Development

Brivo — a company whose goal is to provide customers with “simply better security” to protect lives, assets, and facilities — puts people at the heart of everything that they do. The company interacts with respect and integrity, taking an inclusive view and sharing ownership of every decision, all while seeking to promote curiosity, exploration, and learning.

Listening to their talented team and making sure everyone’s voice is heard is at the heart of the company culture after all. For example, during the company’s All Hands meetings, the CEO answers questions live provided by employees, and then he works to make changes based on employee feedback. All opinions matter and are valuable at Brivo, whether you are an intern or part of upper management. This is part of Brivo’s emphasis on ensuring that all team members feel empowered to voice their opinions and think ahead in order for the company to evolve rapidly. 

By practicing value-based decision-making and focusing on meaningful outcomes, as well as living by their core values of collaboration, innovation, delivery, and contribution, Brivo has grown to become a global leader in mobile, cloud-based access control for commercial real estate, multifamily residential, and large distributed enterprises. And, Brivo’s reach extends beyond this, too! Brivo invests in people and global communities, valuing socially responsible behavior and building elegant, reliable solutions. “We are guided by elevating the human experience,” the company says. “We are inspired by the needs of our customers.”

Brivo is a nimble and forward-thinking company that differentiates itself from others in the space by providing increased security, flexibility, unlimited scalability, and integration with key systems. Want to learn more about why women love working at the company? Read on!
