Senior Software Engineer, Detectives & Dispatch - Worldwide
Who is Flock?
Flock Safety provides the first 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 have raised over $380M in venture capital including a recent Series E round led by Tiger Global. Now surpassing a 3B valuation, Flock is scaling quickly and seeking the best and brightest to help us meet our goal of reducing crime in the United States by 25% in the next three years.
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
- 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.
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
- Postgres DB, ElasticSearch, but occasionally Redis or DynamoDB (use the right tool for the job)
- Kubernetes, Docker
- AWS (SQS, S3, etc)
