Flock Safety

Job description

Eliminate Crime. Build Community.
Flock Safety provides a public safety operating system that empowers private communities and law enforcement to work together to eliminate crime. We are committed to protecting human privacy and mitigating bias in policing with the development of best-in-class technology rooted in ethical design, which unites civilians and public servants in pursuit of a safer, more equitable society.
Our Safety-as-a-Service approach includes affordable devices powered by LTE and solar that can be installed anywhere. Our technology detects and captures objective details, decodes evidence in real-time and delivers investigative leads into the hands of those who matter.
While safety is a serious business, we are a supportive team that is optimizing the remote experience to create strong and fun relationships even when we are physically apart. 
Our flock of hard-working employees thrive in a positive and inclusive environment, where a bias towards action is rewarded. Flock Safety is headquartered in Atlanta and operates nationwide. We are well funded by Meritech Capital, Initialized Capital, YCombinator, Matrix Partners, BedRock Capital, and Founders Fund - and we're scaling quickly.

About the opportunity 

This role falls in our Platform team, a team of 4 extremely sharp engineers responsible for our backend data processing pipeline, user facing products, and overall system architecture. They’re the glue that works closely with our Machine Learning and Hardware teams to tie everything into a cohesive product experience for our users.

Some challenges you’ll tackle

  • Own features through their lifecycle: backend, frontend, data stores – the whole shebang (#!)
  • Collaborate with Machine Learning and Hardware teams on multifaceted projects touching the entire system
  • Design systems at scale – We process over 20M images daily in real time
  • Learn our system. If a technology is out there, we probably touch it
  • Working directly with Product to scope features into iterative efforts
  • Assess new technologies as needed for a task and make decisions balancing technical need and business impact

About You

  • Love writing code and have extensive experience doing so. 
  • Motivated by taking an unknown problem, sinking your teeth in, and coming up with a plan of attack.
  • Have a strong desire to grow their role as well as have a direct influence on the growth of a young company. 
  • Be interested in all aspects of the business, from direction to office space. 
  • Be excited about working on a fast-paced, constantly evolving product. 
  • Be able to crack a joke every now and then, even if you're the only one who laughs.

Our Tech

If you noticed, the above list says very little about specific coding skills. We believe the right person for this role is much more than a great engineer. But to get into the nitty gritty, currently our stack looks like:
  • Typescript (Node) web services with a bit of Scala and Go in there as well as needed
  • React on the frontend, but also some mix of plain ole HTML, CSS (bootstrap), and Javascript (jQuery + KnockoutJS) as needed
  • Postgres DB, but occasionally Redis or DynamoDB (use the right tool for the job)
  • Kubernetes, Docker
  • AWS (SQS, S3, etc)

Why join the Flock? 

When you join the Flock, you are joining a diverse team of passionate, ambitious, intelligent people that put team over self. We offer competitive salary, benefits, and the opportunity to grow your career at a fast-paced, high growth start up. We genuinely care about the well-being of our employees both in and out of the office and understand the importance of work/life balance. We’d love for you to join us in the fight to eliminate non-violent crime, one neighborhood at a time.
