Flock Safety · Feb 19th 2021
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
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 with a bit of Scala and Go in there as well 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)
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.
