August was one of Ring’s first employees. Before Ring, August and CEO Jamie Siminoff worked out of Jamie's garage, inventing a variety of products. After some time, August and Ring's two other employees realized they needed a video doorbell to see when packages were delivered while working in the garage, so they did what felt right—they created one.
August oversees the company’s daily activities. He’s also the head of Ring’s Neighborhoods Department, which works to develop programs that help reduce crime in neighborhoods. August is always looking for new opportunities to engage with customers so that he and his team can gather feedback on how Ring products are used and how they can be improved.
