Careers at Flock Safety

Join a team of experienced entrepreneurs to eliminate crime in our communities

While we have a few roles listed below, we always welcome eager individuals.

At Flock (YC S17), we are looking to hire a full-stack 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 well funded YCombinator, Matrix Partners, BedRock Capital, and Founders Fund - and we're poised for growth.

About you
======
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 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:
- A healthy mix of Scala (Play) and Typescript (Node) web services
- React Native mobile app
- Postgres DB
- Frontend admin interface using fairly straight forward HTML, CSS (bootstrap), and Javascript (jQuery + some KnockoutJS)
- AWS, Docker, Kubernetes

And more to come based on your recommendations!

We've got a lot of exciting technical problems to solve: we capture over 2 million images a day and need to process them for object detection as quickly as possible.

You don't have to be a master in any of these, but you should be excited by the opportunity to become one.

Note: Some travel may be required.
