Flock Safety provides a 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 are well funded by Meritech Capital, Initialized Capital, YCombinator, Matrix Partners, BedRock Capital, and Founders Fund - and we're scaling quickly.

Why join us?

  • The company is started by two (technical) founders with successful startup backgrounds and has been growing at a great rate since its inception 3 years ago.

  • Be given problems – not solutions. Get enough business context to make decisions yourself without being handed requirements and told to go.

  • Great remote-first culture.

Engineering at Flock Safety

Engineering team and processes

We have 4 engineering teams: Platform, Machine Learning, Hardware, and Firmware. Each team has a team lead but is otherwise flat. As we look to grow the team, that will definitely change with more bodies, but how that changes is going to be dependent on the people we hire and what the team thinks is best. Each team has autonomy to run how it thinks makes the most sense for its discipline. Most of our software teams run on 2 week sprints, with planning and retrospectives, and code review and getting code out to prod (even on your first day) is valued.

Technical Challenges
  • Own features through their lifecycle: backend, frontend, data stores – the whole shebang (#!)
  • Collaborate with Machine Learning and Hardware teams on multifaceted projects touching the entire system
  • Design systems at scale – We process over 30M images daily in real time
  • Learn our system. If a technology is out there, we probably touch it
  • Working directly with Product to scope features into iterative efforts
  • Assess new technologies as needed for a task and make decisions balancing technical need and business impact
