Flock Safety

Software Engineer – Detectives & Dispatch

$100,000-$140,000 / YEAR

About the opportunity

This role falls in our Detectives & Dispatch team, the team tasked with our flagship crime solving software solutions used by Detectives, Dispatch, and other Law Enforcement officers across the country. This is an opportunity to join a team and product that is helping to solve crimes and make communities safer every day.

Some challenges you’ll tackle

  • Own features through their lifecycle: backend, frontend, data stores – the whole shebang
  • Build applications that help solve crime
  • Collaborate with Machine Learning and Hardware teams on multifaceted projects
  • Work directly with Product to understand user needs and scope solutions
  • 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.
  • Desire to grow your role and have a direct influence on the growth of a young company.
  • Interested in all aspects of the business, from direction to office space.
  • Excited about working on a fast-paced, constantly evolving product.

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
  • Swift(iOS) or Kotlin(Android) for mobile apps
  • Postgres DB, ElasticSearch, 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 crime, one neighborhood at a time.


About Flock Safety

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.
