Careers at Flock

Join a team of experienced entreprenuers set off to eliminate crime in our communities

Software Engineer

At Flock, we are looking to hire a software engineer. We've written some vague ideas about what that person might look like below. But as always, it's as much about us understanding you as it is you understanding us, so if you're interested in creating something great, we should talk.

About Flock

Flock exists to eliminate crime from our communities.

We believe that security starts, not when you enter your home or even your property, but when you enter your neighborhood. We are stronger together and that's why Flock has developed security technology specifically designed for neighborhoods.

Everyone deserves both safety and privacy. While safety is serious business, we still think there is some space for having fun.

We call Atlanta home and are funded by our founders, local Angels, and YCombinator.

Our ideal candidate should:

  • Love writing code and have extensive experience doing so.
  • 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.

If you noticed, the above list says very little about actual coding skills. We believe the right person for this role is much more than a great engineer. If you're interested (and you should be), take a look below at the tech we're currently working with.

Our current stack:

  • Scala (Play) for our API, Image processing, and admin site
  • Machine learning backend written in Python with Keras/Tensorflow
  • HTML/CSS/Javascript for our customer facing admin site.

You are not expected to be an expert in all or most of these, but you should be excited at the idea to become one.

Note some travel may be required.
