ELi Technology has developed and patented Emergency Mobile Location (EML), a methodology and location-based service which uses Wi-Fi architecture. EML can help SAVE LIVES by providing dispatchable location information when you need it most. EML leverages a private network’s design and existing Wi-Fi environment, providing essential and accurate location data and support. Unlike all other Location Based Services, EML can deliver traditional outdoor GPS location, and more importantly accurate indoor location, with precise floor and room number.

Reporting to the President and CEO, the Director of Technology will be responsible for establishing ELi Technology’s overall IT and R&D strategies and ensuring the Company executes flawlessly against them. The person in this role will have a seat at the leadership table and will be continually involved in shaping the overall strategy of the Company.
