Job Description

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


About You



  • 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. 


Our Tech


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

  • React on the frontend, but also some mix of plain ole HTML, CSS (bootstrap), and Javascript (jQuery + KnockoutJS) 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)

  • Kubernetes, Docker

  • 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.
