Are you excited about eliminating non-violent crime and fascinated by the potential for technology to accelerate it? Do you want to help build a company that’s solving crime every day, while creating public / private partnerships, and protecting the privacy of individual citizens? Flock Safety exists to eliminate crime from our communities. We believe that safety starts, not when you enter your home or even your property, but when you enter your community. We are stronger when we all work together and that's why Flock Safety developed technology specifically designed to help private citizens and local law enforcement work together to stop crime. While safety is serious business, we still think there is some space for having fun. We call Atlanta home and are well funded by Meritech, YCombinator, Matrix Partners, BedRock Capital, and Founders Fund - and we're growing.
